According to a Kaiser poll 81% of Democrats favor "Medicare for all," single-payer healthcare, along with 60% of Independents and almost a third of Republicans. And for good reason: virtually every country in the developed world provides better access to healthcare at half the cost using a single-payer system.

 

Fear mongering that single payer will cut into working families' incomes through tax hikes is disingenuous, because single payer replaces sky-rocketing insurance premiums, deductibles, and co-payments. A single payer system creates savings by cutting out for-profit middlemen and eliminating administrative waste, creating exactly the relief for working and middle-class families that AMERICA champions.

 

BECAUSE EVERYONE PAYS INTO THE SINGLE PAYER SYSTEM NO ONE IS PAYING MORE TO COVER THE COST FOR THOSE  WHO CANNOT AFFORD THE MEDICAL INSURANCE INDUSTRY. THIS IS A FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE APPROACH.

 

I am for IMPROVED Medicare Single Payer Insurance for ALL .   My tax dollars being spent on my health care is better than my tax dollars funding the USA war machine, subsidizing the oil industry, subsidizing pro sports, subsidizing local builders and developers thus the real estate industries, subsidizing tax breaks of all sorts and funding the annual raise of legislators pay etc etc etc.

I want my tax dollars being spent more efficiently and effectively for my health care. Tax dollar supported health insurance = everyone is paying because everyone pays taxes somehow.

Here are 10 great reasons to support IMPROVED Medicare Single Payer Insurance:

 

1. Everybody In, Nobody Out. Universal means access to health care for everyone, period.  Plus it is estimated to create 2.6 million new jobs!

 

2. Portability. If you are unemployed, or lose or change jobs, your health coverage stays with you.

 

3. Uniform Benefits. No Cadillac plans for the wealthy and Pinto plans for everyone else, with high deductibles, limited services, caps on payments for care, and no protection in the event of a catastrophe. One level of comprehensive care for everyone, regardless of the size of your wallet.

 

4. Prevention. By removing financial roadblocks, a universal health system encourages preventive care that lowers an individual's ultimate cost and pain and suffering when problems are neglected and societal cost in the over-utilization of emergency rooms or the spread of communicable diseases.

 

5. Choice. Most private insurance restricts your choice of providers and hospitals. Under the U.S. National Health Insurance Act, patients have a choice, and the provider is assured a fair payment.

 

6. No Interference with Care. Caregivers and patients regain their autonomy to decide what's best for a patient's health, not what's dictated by the billing department. No denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions or cancellation of policies for "unreported" minor health problems.

 

7. Reducing Waste. One third of every private health insurance dollar goes for paperwork and profits, compared to about 3% under Medicare, the federal government’s universal system for senior citizen healthcare.

 

8. Cost Savings. A guaranteed health care system can produce the cost savings needed to cover everyone, largely by using existing resources without the waste. Taiwan, shifting from a U.S. private health care model, adopted a similar system in 1995, boosting health coverage from 57% to 97% with little increase in overall health care spending.

 

 

9. Common Sense Budgeting. The public system sets fair reimbursements applied equally to all providers, private and public, while assuring that appropriate health care is delivered, and uses its clout to negotiate volume discounts for prescription drugs and medical equipment.

 

10. Public Oversight. The public sets the policies and administers the system, not high priced CEOs meeting in private and making decisions based on their company’s stock performance needs.

Hey SCHITSTAIN, why don't you tell this "better access" LIE to those people in the EU, Canada, and anywhere else that has SOCIALIST MEDICINE who are on the WAITING LISTS for surgery and other medical treatments. As in MOST of those needing surgery or treatments.

 

I bet you get a DIFFERENT KIND OF BITCH SLAPPING!!

 

Ask them too, about what happens if you or a family member gets CANCER or some other disease that is expensive to treat.

 

You should do that FIRST, don't you think???

IMPROVED Medicare For All Insurance establishes an American-styled national health insurance program. The bill would create a publicly financed, privately delivered health care program that uses the already existing Medicare program by expanding and improving it to all U.S. residents, and all residents living in U.S. territories.

 

The goal of the legislation is to ensure that all Americans, guaranteed by law, will have access to the highest quality and cost effective health care services regardless of ones employment, income, or health care status.

 

* With over 45-75 million uninsured Americans, and another 50 million who are under insured, it is time to change our inefficient and costly fragmented health care system.

 

* Physicians For A National Health Program reports that under a Medicare For All plan, we could save billions of dollars a year in total health care costs.

 

* We would move away from our present system where annual family premiums have increased upwards to more than $18,000 a year for 24/7 hassle free care.

 

* Under IMPROVED Medicare For All Insurance, a family of three making $40,000 per year could spend approximately $1600 per year for health care coverage.

 

* Medicare for All would allow the United States to reduce its almost $2 trillion health care expenditure per year while covering all of the uninsured and everybody else for more than they are getting under their current health care plans.

 

Under IMPROVED Medicare For All Insurance the program will cover all medically-necessary services, including primary care, inpatient care, outpatient care, emergency care, prescription drugs, durable medical equipment, long term care, mental health services, dentistry, eye care, chiropractic, and substance abuse treatment.

 

Patients have their choice of physicians, providers, hospitals, clinics, and practices. Medicare will be improved and everybody will get it.

They also pay income tax in many cases and get no Medicaid for their family.

 

And yes their payroll taxes fund Medicare as well.

Do you favor illegals following a different set of laws than US citizens do?

 

Why are they contributing funds to the social security  they can never recover? The dirty little secret here is that the illegals is probably used a US citizen's social security number when s/he applied for a job. If I had done that I would be in jail for identity theft and fraud.

 

If illegals are stealing citizen's SSN, it makes you wonder where the left is getting their "illegals commit less crimes than the general population" mantra.

Yah, everybody wants free healthcare, until they find out what they have to pay for it, then those numbers tank.

 

Look at Bernie, who was up in the polls until he started the Ralph Kramden humma humma humma routine  about how he'd pay for healthcare. Now where is he in the polls?

Polls...     people   like   you  use  polls to  steer  public opinion  rather  than   measure it.   I do not follow the   opinion of  the great  unwashed and moronic.

 

Obamacare destroyed the   high deductible catastrophic  insurance product.  Everyone   involved  needs to  be lined up against a wall.  You have to be an idiot to be a Democrat or a member of their  elite group.  It did kill your party though.

so... I guess that is your way of saying, "no...as a matter of fact, I really don't have ANY statistical analysis that would support my assertion."

 

For a supposed brave healer, you sure have a hard time being brave when it comes to standing up and supporting your bullshit.
