It has been a while since I updated any counts of the dead and broke due to the deeper corporatization of the U.S. health care system. I knew that some of the tallies of the uninsured were based on estimates of the dead flowing from pre-Affordable Care Act/Obamacare days. I just don't like monkeying around with the numbers of dead. The people who die unnecessarily because they cannot afford the care or coverage that might have saved their lives deserve to have the truth told about their lives and their deaths. I expect we'll have some updates on that calculation soon enough.
Like the author brought out, why do we have to wait till things are so bad and so desperate that there is no choice but to enact Medicare for all? If we start working on it now and don't give in or give up maybe we'll get it accomplished before it's the only way left to go! At this juncture we still have too much to lose not to fight for it!
Pwr 2 the MEDICARE[D] peons!
