In case you are not up on the latest acronym–M4A stands for Medicare For All….
Our health care is getting more expensive as the Congress keeps allowing the industry to screw Americans at every turn.
Since the dialog has come to the possibility of Medicare For All I have been a supporter…there are too damn many Americans without health care for this to be anything but a ‘gimme’.
Sen. Sanders has once again brought the proposal to the forefront……
Slamming the current U.S. healthcare system as a morass of waste, dysfunction, and profiteering, Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday introduced Medicare for All legislation that would eliminate out-of-pocket insurance costs and provide comprehensive coverage to everyone in the country.
“It is not acceptable to me, nor to the American people, that over 70 million people today are either uninsured or underinsured,” Sanders (I-Vt.), chair of the Senate Budget Committee, said during a Medicare for All hearing that he convened Thursday morning.
“As we speak,” the Vermont senator continued, “there are millions of people who would like to go to a doctor but cannot afford to do so. This is an outrage.”
Under the system that Sanders’ bill would usher in, patients would no longer have to fork over copays, deductibles, and premiums to hugely profitable insurance companies.
“If Medicare for All becomes law, your taxes will go up,” Sanders noted, anticipating insurance industry talking points against his bill. “But what they won’t tell you is that there would be no out-of-pocket costs.”
For break down on this issue then I have a post that can help the reader understand what this bill will detail….
Medicare For All
Before you start bumping your gums in opposition please read about the bill and tell me why Americans do not deserve coverage.
Realistically whether you are for or against M4A your choice matters not…..for the the government from top down is swayed only by bribes….sorry I mean campaign donations….not what the best for the people of this country…..their ( elected officials) means nothing! Their only motivation is the cash they can siphon off…not the will of the people.
Like I stated before I am in favor of the idea…but that is just me….

I don’t know … if we can fork over billions and billions for weapons and armaments and humanitarian efforts for Ukraine and the whole rest of the world, you would think that we could do a little something for the benefit of our own citizens.
You would think but apparently we are the few that feel that way. chuq
While the Dutch healthere is neither perfect free (monthly payments) still for US citizens, it would be a weight of their shoulders if they wouldn’t get in debt,or bankrupt.
And it just keeps getting more expensive and no help from the government to help its citizens. chuq
We keep going over your failed system on various blogs. But it is still all just about one thing.
Profit before people.
Sad but true, chuq.
Best wishes, Pete.
Exactly…..but I keep trying to make sense of the ignorance…..good luck to me….LOL chuq
