    Government mandates waste in healthcare system

    Why I think there is a deep-state conspiracy to demonize single-payer healthcare

    What if everything you thought about single payer was wrong? What if the reason we don't have it and there's so much opposition to it is not because of the greed of the insurance companies, corruption, or the influence of private interests at all? This is what most progressives believe is...

    I’m sure everyone has seen that Trump is getting back into healthcare promises before the election.

    What are you thinking about that? Does anybody believe Republicans have a healthcare plan for the majority of Americans? What would that plan look like? And who are those people Republicans feel shouldn’t be bothered with having health care.

    What are Trump’s biggest and most damaging broken campaign promises?

    What are Trump’s biggest and most damaging broken campaign promises? I can think of three. He said he was going to replace healthcare with something better and that was a lie. He said he was going to wipe out the deficit, and that was a lie. He said he was going to make Mexico pay for...

    So how would Republicans decide who lives and who dies?

    I keep seeing Republicans saying we can't afford healthcare for everyone. And we know emergency room care will bankrupt us. So who lives and who dies? And how do Republicans decide? A lottery? How?

    Elections over: Republicans can finally stop pretending they care about Healthcare.

    20 states can still lose their protections for pre existing conditions because of the lawsuit Republicans have going to end Obamacare and the protections, including protecting those with pre existing conditions. Now that the elections are over it's clear America wasn't fooled. Everyone knows...

    Healthcare for all would cost $32 TRILLION over 10 years.

    So I can’t put a link on this because I was just watching this on TV during a panel discussion. So what they said was that 32 trillion sounds like a lot unless you look at the big picture. If you take all the money spent now to insurance companies and take the money that is used for eyeglasses...

    Women are the majority of the nation. And they are starting to flex their political muscle.
