In case you didn’t know, the GOP does not all give a shit about making healthcare more affordable to the middle class and poor. Republican voters for some reason think they do? I’m not really sure. Mitch McConnel just got a 50k payout from Big Pharma for blocking a vote on a bill to lower drug prices.

McConnell gets $50,000 from pharma after blocking bill to lower drug prices

When you ask average Joe republican what solutions they have to skyrocketing healthcare costs, they say “get government out of the way!”

Are you kidding me?

The reason why prescription drug prices are so high is because of corporate greed. Republicans know that right? It’s not like these wealthy executives say to themselves “man if only we got rid of all the government red tape. Then we can make enough money to lower our drug prices! We are noble men like that after all!” These execs have a fiduciary responsibility to maximize profit and obviously one way to do that is to charge insane prices for their drugs.

Hey guess what? A single payer system would be hella expensive and hard to implement, but it would still save us 450 billion per year on healthcare. It would save 60k people per year. After all, we spend more per capita on healthcare than any country on Earth. This largely goes to fat administrative costs.

Medicare For All would save $450 billion annually while preventing 68,000 deaths, new study shows

No way in FUCK single payer healthcare saves me one dime, I'd go upside down 6K annually. I'm middle class, my health premium is about $55 a month, and I've LITERALLY not spent one dime on medical expenses in probably a decade. I obviously don't see a doctor much. Matter of fact I saw one today. The visit is covered 100%, and even if it wasn't it wouldn't cost me a dime. If I have a heart attack tomorrow I don't spent one penny on the event.

Yeah, the current system is horrible.

No, getting government out won’t do shit. That’s just something you believe because it sounds good and coddles your pre-conceived notions. It doesn’t have a basis in reality.

Allow us to buy drugs from Canada and Mexico at the same prices they pay. Force drug companies to spread research costs among other payers and not just Americans. Allow free enterprise to establish their own colleges. There are more people who want to be medical students then their are seats to teach them. Open up the playing field. stifle supply of course costs are going to go up.

Why did the far left let the insurance companies and big pharma write Obamacare that they did not bother to read?

Let Canadian drug companies replace american ones....that will drive down prices right there. Close fast food joints and cut the flow of processed foods. There that's a start.

Typical partisan foolishness.

Ds are just as guilty in continuing this fraud of a HC system. Ears could have easily enacted Medicare for all in his first two years. Instead he pushed a right wing plan designed specifically to enrich his donors in big hospital, pharma, and insurance.

Our corrupt HC system is now so expensive and ineffective, Medicare for all will be cheaper plus it will eliminate all those high paid crooks leading corporations pushing the fraud.

Trumpism is ugly, and Leftism is absurd
There are few major issues that lend themselves more to collaboration from both ends than health care.

But no, we're not allowed to do that, because we're stuck in this stupid, simplistic, binary, either/or, competing worldview thinking pattern.

One of the best examples of why the nutters on both ends are wrecking us.

Republicans don’t have “real plans” on healthcare because we understand that the Government is not the proper entity to be dealing with anyone’s healthcare. Thst is a personal problem thst each individual needs to come up with their own solution to.

As a Conservative I have the best solution for health care.

I pay my health care bills and you pay yours and leave the fucking government out of it.

Problem solved.
