Voters should know by now after 70 years politicians have never provided health insurance for the people. Too many on both sides of the aisle take money from the insurance industry, from health care providers and are investors.

 The U.S. health insurance system is typically characterized as a largely private-sector system, so it may come as a surprise that more than 60% of the $4 trillion or more annual U.S. health care bill is paid through taxes. Therefore 60% of $4 trillion tax dollars or more is the source which could cover the cost of a single payer system. At least a sizeable portion. WHY NOT COVER ALL IN AMERICA FOR ABOUT THE SAME COST AS 60%?

Yoder and the nations republicans have no answer. Of course donations/kicbacks to political campaigns cost money aka health care dollars so who gets billed for that? People buying insurance. 

 

WE voters need the last word aka WE voters need a ballot even a special election if necessary. The money that consumers and the cost of government will save would easily justify a special election.

 

Support Single Payer in the USA!

WE NEED MEDICARE FOR ALL

Health care refers to services provided by medical professionals aimed at promoting physical and mental welfare, through the prevention, treatment, and management of illness. This includes care by the medical and allied health professionals, curative care for acute conditions, management of chronic disease, rehabilitation, and palliative care.

 

Although the aim of health care is to promote individual and public health, health care is a distinct concept from “health.” Factors outside of the provision of health care (e.g., diet, genetics) play an important role in determining individual health, and the provision of health care is only one aspect of the governance of health.

 

Equally though, governing health care extends beyond promoting health. Health care is a major industrial sector, a growing component of many developed countries’ national economies, and an important component of their labor force.

 Put choices on the table! And show veterans and business a little more respect in the process.

 

LET THE VOTERS DECIDE ON A 2018 BALLOT NATION WIDE = allowing consumers 3 options for the rest of their lives. Which one works best for YOU


=== ObamaCare which retains the health insurance industry. Sooner or later much of this group will enroll in single payer.

 

=== Single Payer Medicare for ALL = excellent coverage for those who wish to enroll. The absolute best choice on planet earth. https://www.healthcare-now.org/docs/spreport.pdf

 

=== Self financed health care for those able to do so aka opt out. 

 

 

=== ALL Disabled vets should receive Medicare with a 100% benefit so they and their families can receive medical care immediately upon discharge. Make it retroactive.

 

=== Business should not be forced to provide health insurance.

 

Again WE know that using the existing medicare template to service Medicare for All Single payer saves lots and lots of dollars over reinventing the wheel. http://www.healthcare-now.org/docs/spreport.pdf

1.  this will not be "government health care" as the health care will STILL be provided as it is now.  That makes the FREE opinion wrong.

2. health care costs are likely over $40 trillion over 10 year as we speak because the cost of insurance profits must be figured in as well.  The cost of health care by way of the insurance industry was at $3.2 trillion per year 10 years ago.

3. health care is rationed  because the cost of insurance industry coverage for "no questions asked coverage" is prohibitive to 99% of the population.

4. this is not free health care  because medicare single payer allows ALL OF US USA citizens to pay for our own coverage because all of us pay taxes somehow therefore eliminating the need for a special tax as I see it.

5.  Elected officials must recuse themselves because of massive special interest concerns:
a. they accept campaign money 
b. they own shares
c. there are 8 lobbyists per elected official 

6. Under single payer cosy of admin drops 30%.

Why Medicare-for-All?

Too many people in the U.S. are suffering needlessly or dying because they can’t afford care. Too many people are going bankrupt from high medical bills. The answer: Medicare-for-All. 

This system would expand health care coverage to everyone in the U.S., regardless of income. Under a single-payer, Medicare-for-All system, everyone in the U.S. would finally have access to the care they need, without high out-of-pocket costs or insurance companies getting between them and their doctor. 

 

Americans understand that our deeply fragmented health care system doesn’t serve their best interests and puts the health industry first, and that’s why the people power around this issue is growing every day. In 2018, the movement for Medicare-for-All hit several milestones. Most notably, a record number of U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives lawmakers signed on to legislation that would create a single-payer system.

 

These milestones came after years of advocacy by Public Citizen and its allies, culminating in a series of marches, rallies and other actions.
