Didn't you post this thread last week?

And no, we need a true single payer system, not to expand the existing system.
We have a single payer system already. Working American's pay taxes so non working Americans can have healthcare. Great Idea !:anj_stfu:

Medicare was never meant to cover the whole population. Moreover, at the time it was instituted, the elderly didn't live a long as they do now. Medicare was meant to be supported by a younger working population but, that no longer applies today like it did decades ago. In fact, Medicare today is losing solvency. So, how is Medicare supposed to give 'free' health care to the total population of the U.S. if it can't stay solvent just serving a small fraction?

Safety nets don't work if everyone is in the 'net'.

Most people don't know how the Medicare system actually works. The Democrats are dishonestly trying to pass Single Payer off as Medicare.

Single Payer? Absolutely not.

An expansion of the Medicare / Medicare Advantage / Medicare Supplement system to all? You bet.
.
There are a lot of different ways better health care can be implemented, and it should. Right now if you find yourself between jobs and have a health problem you are pretty much screwed, even if you have worked your whole life. That shouldn't happen to people.

Right. Which is why the first thing we need to do is eliminate the tax-free status of health insurance benefits, and repeal all requirements and "incentives" pushing us all into employer provided health care.

Expanding Medicare would be even worse than true single payer. It would create permanent rent-seeker feeding trough for insurance companies.

whose with me?
Russia, Cuba, Venezuela... Everyone living in Socialist Utopia.

So... Did you support Obamacare in the beginning?

Were you fooled, or did you know they intended for Obamacare to destroy private healthcare when they passed it?

Why would anyone give the same morons that wrote Obamacare Overlord authority over their family's healthcare? Now that's just dumb.

before it was passed, the CBO estimated that Obamacare would kill 800K jobs. how could obama do that knowing what would happen? so no, i opposed the ACA from the start!
