Medicare for All will provide money for services 24/7 no matter what.....unlike the most current model. No one will need to make payments = great use of tax dollars. best insurance ever.

I am a republican by nature however the party has been a takeover victim by the Fascist Libertarian Fundamentalist group. Most republicans don't seem to care.

 

 nationalization of the energy industry, public ownership of banks, telephone, electric, health insurance and drug companies WOULD NOT be a bad idea as owners would be the users and users would be the managers.

 

And take a look at these items: People need these items and all of these receive large tax dollar subsidies and taxpayer bailouts. So it seems nationalization has taken place therefore these tenants should be evicted immediately and all be managed without CEO's and BOD's.

Do you mind paying 30% income tax? How about a VAT of 20%.

Where is the money going to come from to pay for this insurance?
 

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government took in a bit under $3.3 trillion in revenue in 2016.

Estimates from various sources say that the Medicare for all will cost somewhere between $2.4 to $2.8 trillion a year.

Seeing that we are already running on deficit, DOUBLING your existing taxes will barely cover the cost of Medicare for all.

In addition more than 44% of Americans pay ZERO (0) income tax. I pay taxes and get zero refund.

 

My taxes should double so I can pay for Medicare for all for people that pay for nothing?

 

ONCE AGAIN! WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING TO COME FROM TO PAY FOR THIS?

Health insurers have forced consumers to pay billions of dollars in medical bills that the insurers themselves should have paid, according to a report released yesterday by the staff of the Senate Commerce Committee.

 

At a committee hearing yesterday, three health-care specialists testified that insurers go to great lengths to avoid responsibility for sick people, use deliberately incomprehensible documents to mislead consumers about their benefits, and sell "junk" policies that do not cover needed care. Sen. Jay Rockefeller said he was exploring "why consumers get such a raw deal from their insurance companies."

 

The star witness at the hearing was a former public relations executive for major health insurers whose testimony boiled down to this: Don't trust the insurers.

 

"The industry and its backers are using fear tactics, as they did in 1994, to tar a transparent and accountable -- publicly accountable -- health-care option," said Wendell Potter, who until early last year was vice president for corporate communications at the big insurer Cigna.

 

Insurers make paperwork confusing because "they realize that people will just simply give up and not pursue it" if they think they have been shortchanged, Potter said.

About Single Payer

Single-payer national health insurance, also known as “Medicare for all,” is a system in which a single public or quasi-public agency organizes health care financing, but the delivery of care remains largely in private hands. Under a single-payer system, all residents of the U.S. would be covered for all medically necessary services, including doctor, hospital, preventive, long-term care, mental health, reproductive health care, dental, vision, prescription drug and medical supply costs.

 

The program would be funded by combining our current, considerable sources of public funding (such as Medicare and Medicaid) with modest new taxes based on ability to pay.

 

Over $500 billion in administrative savings would be realized by replacing today’s inefficient, profit-oriented, multiple insurance payers with a single streamlined, nonprofit, public payer.

 

Premiums would disappear, and 95 percent of all households would save money. Patients would no longer face financial barriers to care such as co-pays and deductibles, and would regain free choice of doctor and hospital. Doctors would regain autonomy over patient care.

 

The Medicare for All Act of 2019, H.R. 1384, based on PNHP’s AJPH-published Physicians’ Proposal, would establish an American single-payer health insurance system.

 

What about Obamacare?

The Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) aims to expand coverage to about 30 million Americans by requiring people to buy private insurance policies (partially subsidizing those policies by government payments to private insurers) and by expanding Medicaid.

 

However:

  • About 30 million people will still be uninsured in 2023, and tens of millions will remain underinsured.
  • Insurers will continue to strip down policies, maintain restrictive networks, limit and deny care, and increase patients’ co-pays, deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs.
  • The law preserves our fragmented financing system, making it impossible to control costs.
  • The law continues the unfair financing of health care, whereby costs are disproportionately borne by middle- and lower-income Americans and those families facing acute or chronic illness.
