I remember Obama's promise that Obamacare would save all families about $2,500 a year, it actually cost them about $10,000 a year in deductibles, meaning that they basically pay premiums AND pay deductibles to see a doctor. McCain really screwed up not killing Obamacare when he had the chance. The democrats are running on "single payer" Medicare for all, where the government pays for all healthcare, and its FREE when needed. I can't imagine the lines of people waiting to see doctors. I wonder what GS pay grade doctors would get? These two links basically prove two main points: 1. About 20% of the population uses 80% of the healthcare system. Can you say "pre-existing conditions"? Does 20% of the population really use 80% of health care dollars? 2. The bottom 50% of the population by income pays basically nothing for healthcare How do health expenditures vary across the population? - Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker How can we improve the US healthcare system? 1. The bottom half of the population needs to work to get healthcare, medicaid needs to be cut 2. The 20% of the sickest need top pay more for healthcare since they use most of the resource Any better ideas??
