Doctors Hail Reintroduction of Medicare-for-All Bill

Physicians for a National Health Program

A national physicians group today hailed the reintroduction of a federal bill that would upgrade the Medicare program and swiftly expand it to cover the entire population, saying it’s the only workable and equitable way to move forward in U.S. health care.

There is no question that universal health care using the Medicare style is the best and most cost effective solution. But cutting all the insurance companies out of the market will never fly. One also has to figure out what to do about all the employe plans that finance lot's of the insurance costs. In the US we have to give private companies a piece of everything Americans pay for. It is just orporate rights that they make money off everything.

Other countries have done it and we can as well... declaring it impossible before even working for it diligently and long term is defeatist. Like Obama taking even the mere idea off the table before beginning. This defeatism empowers those against the idea immeasurably. Stop it.
