    • AOC ??? hell yeah i love her … no GRANDSTANDING just get in there and get the dirt in a way that the average ordinary american can understand … you are my Co- Conspirators … can we find that information in his tax returns ??? i donate 10$$/mo …

      AOC 2028 !!!

  1. Medicare For All would effectively reduce the pay of Doctors, Nurses, and support staff. Look at the average pay for these professional in Scadinavia, the model that Bernie advocates for.

    This aspect is not at all covered by the media.

    • +Derek Johnson Exactly my point. These are care professionals that work odd hours to care for sick people. They work outrageously long shifts and routinely are on call.

      I am just not for a government take over and price setting that will result in lowering their pay. There are other ways to reform the system.

      For those who consider doctors as privileged elite, think about the nurses who are changing bed pans during the graveyard shift.

    • +Harry Chu instead of paying them well for long hours …

       lets pay them well for reasonable hours … eight hr shifts … weekends off … four weeks vacation/ yr … paid sick days …

      you know do the right thing … or do you not know ???

    • +Derek Johnson I think what you meant to say was “… instead pay them LESS for reasonable hours.”

      They are paid well now in part b/c of long and odd hours, if this plan goes through, they are not going to pay them WELL (the same?) for less hours. That is not in the Medicare For All bill.

    • +Harry Chu it might not be in the bill but nice things happen when people start doing the right thing out of habit or reflex … it is not fair for someone to work there life away … its high time we start doing things a lot more fair … meritocracy will still exist but EVERYONE deserves to live a purpose filled life … a life beyond just going to work …

    • Please read Broken Government – Author John W. Dean, Legal Adviser of the Republican President Richard Nixon …”The Republican agenda has proven itself to be an agenda of special interests rather than of the public interests, the scheme of a party whose primary aim is to maintain its power whatever the cost …” Washington Post remarked, “At its core, the book argues that the growing power of social and neo-conservatives within the Republican Party has created an army of guileless followers…”

    • Red Pill I would like to correct your perception that Medicare for all would be less expensive. You know that healthcare providers can charge you the difference between the billed amount and the Medicare allowed amount, right? Also, right now, Medicare has a backlog of claim appeals back to 2011, 12, and 13. That means that hospitals, doctors, labs , equipment suppliers are not getting paid for 5-7 years. They are left financing the Medicare program with an already below cost reimbursement by Medicare. Google Competitive Bidding. How many providers are going to be left in business to supply you with a hospital bed, a walker, a wheelchair or oxygen equipment when the reimbursement doesn’t cover the cost? Next, I want you to Google LCD, local coverage determination, to see all the rules and regulations that suppliers need to follow for that miniscule payment. After that, THEN you can come back and tell me how affordable Medicare is. Don’t forget that you’ll also be responsible for 20% for your doctors visit and a limited number days that you can be in the hospital, nursing home or rehab, with huge deductibles, by the way.

    • Sure sure sure… never mind that Medicare is already looking shaky with the existing payroll-tax deductions and matched employer contributions… let’s put millions of people on it that don’t pay anything.

    • According to David Doel / The Rational National – New study finds 45,000 deaths in America annually linked to lack of healthcare coverage – In Canada, zero…Medical bills are the biggest cause of U.S. Bankruptcies study… If American voters are much more mature than un-American puppets, there will be no place for them in Congress…

  2. debts already 23 trillion why not make it a hundred and twenty-three trillion a year it’s not like it’s real money it’s just paper we could print more

    • it doest quite work that way the federal reserve is a whole lot of F**ked up… but medicare for all would go a long way towards lowering national debt …

    • Health care is the top human right of mankind – Product of God’ Love – God teaches us – Love one another – Take care of each other – God hates the racism and hatred…

  3. So sorry to hear that, well for me am the only child of my mother, my father is late, am single no kids. So how many children have you got and my guess they must be grown up right?

  4. Throw 2 openly Anti-Semitic muslim Democrats into any mix and this is what you get. islam does not allow for things like liberty, truth and justice. Cultists have no place in our society, what we have seen in just a few short weeks has a smell to it that nobody regardless of party affiliation likes.

    • but AIPAC leads to endless wars that cause about the same amount of devastation … plus we get to $$$ for the industrial complex …

      ill stand by ILHAN OMAR … AIPAC is trash …

  5. but if your honest about medicare for all … and you say how it can and will be paid for then people REALLY like medicare for all …

    BERNIE TULSI 2020 !!!

  6. Health ins, drugs etc was not so expensive until Obama made it mandatory and millions lost good heath ins from their companies and forced to take Obamacare when they retired. Obamacare only served the illegals and immigrants that he let into our county that had babies so they can get more freebies.

  7. Yes. Fox Entertainment Programming would propagate this. Don’t think they are lobbying for corporate insurance companies and medical services? Socialist polices like Social Security, dummies. Fox helps the ruling class convince the lazy to keep handing their money over to that “pot of gold” they are used to dipping in to . Which is OUR money.. You think they want to let go of corporate tax cuts and money they take from us in taxes? We are brainwashed to believe we are always in danger so some of the biggest ruling class entities can take our money for war equipment. One of the biggest money makers we pay for.
    Our policies; aid to farmers, aid to business, Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment, Social Services, military, aid to corporations and much, much more are Democratic Socialist policies. Much the same as advanced European countries. At least they are smart and demand their money works for them and not only the 1-2%.
    We deserve to take our money back to benefit ourselves. There’s no socialism here any different than we already have. It’s an expansion of policies to help ourselves.
    Keep listening to this mind-rotting nonsense. You will be poorer and poorer if you do.

  8. FAKE FAKE FAKE >>>The libertarian study ACTUALLY S show a decrease in cost !! Riddle me this what does an insurance company produce ??? NOTHING !!
