absolutely.Would You Support Replacing PPACA with Medicare for All?
At least not formally.
Insurers, by the nature of the business and economies of scale, are necessarily BIG businesses.
The CEOs of these corporations would know what was going in to a proposed bill legislating this stuff before the ink was even dry on the page.
And I mean the page that the authors doodled out the broad strokes of the draft on before the thing even had a full compliment of sponsors or ever saw the floor.
“Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
No, I support replacing it with nothing and Medicare for none.
Frankly? I'm not sure that isn't the way Medicare is administered now . . .
Medicare is managed by the US Government. Its pays pennies on the dollar towards medical costs which is why many (my parents did) buy supplemental insurance. The opponents of private insurance seem to think that 5.5% profit margin they make is evil, or that they pay an executive tons of money is some how evil. Yet when we (those who think differently) point out the waste and fraud in Medicare they tell us "oh its nominal." What's next - can't check ID for access to Medicare for that'd be racist?
"What difference" "does it make?"
Eliminate, for the most part, private insurance.
Reduce the "crowding out" effect in the medical field.
Expansion, incentivization, and creation of long-term capabilities of HSAs.
But I like to idea of increasing Medicare/Medicaid taxes to pay for it. The PPACA seems so unequal and subsidizes employees with health care while putting burdens on the self employed or those without a employer provided health plan.
