Why destroy what most people like now ? Medicare works because young people
subsidize it. If you had millions more people you will end up with a new
Veterans Administration type health care system. No one wants that.I hope Dems and Republicans will compromise and make Obama Care / Romney Care
something that it should have been from the start. Issues to include...1. Dont force religious institutions to provide birth control measures that is
against their religious beliefs2. allow health insurance to be bought
across state lines3. make Medicare negotiate lower prices with big
Pharma4. outlaw drug advertising and payments to doctors5. in the
individual market , allow some type of high risk market for people with high
prolonged medical costs Something could be done.
Add to your plan a Porsche for everyone, and I’ll vote for you.
It’s scary when liberal politicians double down on insane ideas.With recent news about medicare fraud, he really wants to expand it?Health care is not a right. Rights do not need providers other than God
– protectors, yes, but not providers. One cannot get health care without
seeing a provider. Health care is NOT a right.Replacing / doing away
with private insurance would ensure everyone had equally hit or miss health
care. Why do you think the Brits have a dual system, with the commoners using
the NHS, but those with money using private care?“He and other
supporters of Medicare for All have generally sidestepped the question of how
they'd pay for their plan.”Is there any wonder why?“Earlier this year, a poll from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family
Foundation found that Americans like the idea of Medicare for All but that
support flips to disapproval if it would result in higher taxes or longer waits
for care.” Yep, when faced with the actual costs –
monetary and other – people oppose it.
Does Bernie think 185 million Americans will give up their employer provided
private insurance to go with single payer Medicare? Really?
