    Those claims have been - repeatedly - debunked.

    Lancet knows what they want the result to be, and they are willing to do what they have to in order to get it
    It's had its controversies, but as Wikipedia describes it: "The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal. It is among the world's oldest, most prestigious, and best known general medical journals."

    Yes. Yes it has. Particularly around issues such as these.

    What, like Obamacare? Gosh.

    It offered affordable drugs to some, raised prices for others, but all the while unnecessarily gave hundred of billions too many dollars to the biggest Republican donor industry at the time.

    The story has gotten a bit better.

    The doughnut hold of coverage was improved; it is a popular benefit with recipients.

    More improvement is needed, whether direct fixes such as negotiating prices to the cost, or Medicare for All replacing it.
    we likely disagree on the improvement needed. Medicare Part D remains a popular benefit that allows people to access needed benefits at affordable prices and - unique among government programs - managed to come in under budget. If anything, we should be making the rest of Medicare look more like D.

    The people of Denmark are happy with the healthcare system. They're not privatizing it; they might make other changes.

    Gotta love their logic. They lie about Bernie's claims, using the unqualified word 'socialist', and then say the Nordic systems Bernie praises aren't even real socialist - debunking their own lie. If you continue to post garbage, don't expect a reply. Then you have an obnoxious post to boot while you post clueless things.
