You speak for all Americans?
Americans don’t yet know whether they really support single-payer
The Pew Research Center found that 45 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 — including 66 percent of those who identify as Democrats — supported single-payer health care. Lake explicitly credited Sanders with galvanizing interest in single-payer among younger voters.Sep 13, 2017
How many even really understand what single player is? They simply hear "it's Communist" and they reject it, without understanding it.
Wow, I literally just posted that. And I overstated how much I was paying.
Not at all. The ballot speaks for Americans.
They elected a President with very different ideas about healthcare than his predecessor.
Some of them, no doubt. Just like some hear socialism and just think "free stuff". Lots of idiots out there voting.
Okay, let's put all of it in perspective.
You are being murdered. A cop is standing nearby. He doesn't work for free. Before he will do anything you have to pay him. Otherwise, you are free to continue to be murdered. Have that credit card on hand unless the bad guy already got it.
Your house is on fire and you call the fire department. They need to bill your credit card before they will dispatch the trucks and fire fighters to your location. You mean you only have a Debit Card and it will exceed the money in your account? Your house burns to the ground then. I doubt if there will be time to take out a loan in time to save your house.
This is the health care we have today. If that doesn't scare the hell out of you, think of if the Cops and Firefighters operated the same way.
Health insurance, like police and fire, are prepaid. The pre-payment of health costs takes the form of health insurance, which every responsible adult either fits into their budget, or takes step to self-fund.
The UK has universal healthcare, and spends LESS per capita on it than the US federal government spends on healthcare in the US.
But pedantic is free. You know he means "free at the point of delivery", so why do you bother to go out of your way to be as pedantic as possible?
