Medicare for All
Medicare For All has caught fire in the far left, Socialist circles of the Democrat Party. The program is designed to replace the Democrats failed Obamacare program of 2009 and as the next step on their way to a single payer (government run) healthcare program. On Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All site it even says that: "Health care must be recognized as a right, not a privilege. Every man, woman and child in our country should be able to access the health care they need regardless of their income. The only long-term solution to America's health care crisis is a single-payer national health care program." According to Bernie Sanders, the initiator of the program, Medicare for All would create a federally administered single-payer health care program that will cover the entire continuum of health care, from inpatient to outpatient care; preventive to emergency care; primary care to specialty care, including long-term and palliative care; vision, hearing and oral health care; mental health and substance abuse services; as well as prescription medications, medical equipment, supplies, diagnostics and treatments. Patients will be able to choose a health care provider without worrying about whether that provider is in-network and will be able to get the care they need without having to read any fine print or trying to figure out how they can afford the out-of-pocket costs. Sounds a lot like Obamacare promises plus official government takeover. Do the promises and the math hold up better than Obamacare? Read below.
