    Bernie's M4 All financing plan

    Boom. Paid for along with saving tens of thousands of lives per year and closing in on half a trillion dollars a year in savings. Next gripe?

    Lancet Study Author Says Sanders' Financing Plan Fully Covers Cost of Medicare for All

    "The options laid out by Sen. Sanders last night will more than cover" the cost of Medicare for All, said Yale University’s Alison Galvani, one of the nation’s leading experts on health care financing, and the co-author of a comprehensive report published in The Lancet analyzing the prospect of single-payer health care in the United States.

    Galvani touted the details of Sanders’ financing plan released last night at a CNN town hall.

    The Washington Post reports that the Lancet study shows “national single-payer health-care system would save tens of thousands of lives each year — and hundreds of billions of dollars.” In all, the Post notes that the study shows a “single-payer health-care system would save more than 68,000 lives and $450 billion a year.”

    The defense department budget is $686 billion a year (2018), so we'd basically pick up a new, second defense department budget.

    Well, that's one item of free **** [that's not free]
    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Good for Bernie. I completely disagree with some of his items (debt forgiveness and wealth tax), but it's good for him to give so many details and politically a good move - in tonight's debate, he has a great answer for all the "how you going to pay for it" questions.

    His proposal covers ALL of his items if you look at it...

    What's your point? He shows how he intends to pay for it. Part of it is raising money from REDUCING defense budget by the way.

    The one downside to Government-run healthcare is the government handling it. The government can easily **** up a lemonade stand....imagine how they would mismanage the healthcare needs of 300M people.

    Government has experience doing so already: Medicare is quite a popular program already.

    The government would neither own nor run the Healthcare system under Bernie's plan, simply administer the payment system. The doctor of your choice at the hospital of your choice is still private.

    "Derr, gubmint bad" is not an argument.

    Especially not when European governments manage it just fine in different ways.

    And lose personal expenses that currently dwarf it.
