Federal entire catastrophic, and subsidized medical preventative and screening insurance. I consider myself to be a populist, but I don't object to those considering me to be a liberal proponent. I am not an advocate of socialized medicine, but there are some functions that government regulation and government or quasi-government entities perform in a superior manner. I'm a proponent of federal subsidy for explicitly listed and describe medical screening and preventative procedures, and entire funding of individuals' entitlements to catastrophic medical insurance. Otherwise, how can medical insurers and service providers be held financially and criminally responsible for failing to proactively offer such procedures to their clients and patients? Too often catastrophic medical and financial consequences were due to the patient not receiving medical screening and preventative procedures when their medical conditions clearly indicated that they were reasonable candidates for such procedures. Respectfully, Supposn Excerpted from, I'm a conservative who moved to a liberal city, and I was surprised to see my views change on several issues “I vehemently opposed Obamacare, but now I want socialized medicine. There is perhaps no other single issue I have had such a hard 180-degree turn on than healthcare. As a conservative, I vehemently opposed Obamacare and saw it as a slippery slope to a single-payer healthcare system - in other words, socialized medicine. But now I live in California and, self-employed. … the cheapest possible plan is about $500 per month - plus another $40 for dental coverage. That's $6,480 per year just for health insurance, which doesn't include copays ($75 per visit because the premium is so cheap) and medication. I know California isn't the most expensive in the country, … I have a new opinion about universal healthcare: Bring it on - the sooner the better. Thirty-year-old Dave would not even recognize me”.
