This was the plan all along for health care


Take all the money and innovation out of health care, and let people who are not healthy productive workers for the state, let them all die.

The democrats won't rest till it is 100% of Americans, except for those in government. No, they will have better.
And what are your beloved Rs doing about this?
>And what are your beloved Rs doing about this?

For one, not closing everything down. Working people frequently either get health care benefits or buy their own.

Trump knew that a strong economy and full employment fixes just about every problem...
- Poverty & hunger
- Crime
- Social Security solvency
- Health care funding
- Military threats
- etc.

Get people off unemployment and back to work.

At least 25 Republican-led states are now rejecting Biden's extended $300/wk unemployment benefits...

Everywhere needed
Without a massive domestic conflict....America is history.

People younger than 65ish are fucked royally.
If you're over 65....you threaded the needed and you got the best this world may ever offer. Congrats!
You'll be checking out just as the ship sinks beneath the soiled, contaminated, deadly waters.

What comes after you can be seen today....in Venezuela and Cuba.

More likely we end up in a right wing run oligarchy like Brazil.

Trump doesn’t know shit. Being dumb is why he lost to a corrupt establishment lackey with dementia.

That's really quite incredible. Less than 150M working people out of 330M have to pay for their own health care and also these 80M others' health care.

A family of two has to pay for the health care of three.
It’s actually worse than that, my spouse works at a health care provider and the problems that they are having with Medicaid patients overconsumption of service are causing massive problems with their practice. They routinely schedule appointments and don’t show, they schedule appointments and show up not for treatment but just expecting prescriptions, they refuse to follow treatment plans, they abuse the system in every way possible. Of course that doesn’t mean that all Medicaid patients are like that but it’s reached such epidemic proportions that it’s costing too much money and causing problems seeing other patients that the practice is considering just dropping their contracts with Medicaid, they can’t afford it anymore and it’s negatively impacting all the other private insurance and Medicare patients.

So the bottom line is, the taxpayers aren’t just paying for the Medicaid patients to get treatment, they’re paying for all the WASTE that Medicaid patients are incurring along with paying for getting worse service. Of course Medicaid is administer by the State so this will vary from State to State but I suspect it’s pretty wide spread.

This is the fault of government. Their failure to properly manage and control the program allows people to abuse it.

That’s a big part of it, the lions share of the problem comes from the fact that when you make a good or service “free” for the consumer, over-consumption and thus market failures inevitably follow.
