While John Oliver articulated many of the shortcomings of the current system, much of his arguments in favor of a single-payer system missed the mark.
The coronavirus outbreak provides a compelling argument against Bernie Sanders’ so-called ‘Medicare for All’ program, which would accelerate infectious disease outbreaks.
The Democrat Party’s donor class has openly courted and even supported socializing medicine, college, child care, and more. Now that Sen. Bernie Sanders might win Iowa, they’re worried he’s too radical, too soon.
Making health coverage portable would allow individuals to take their insurance from job to job. This change would eliminate the friction people like Elizabeth Bruenig face between jobs.
If Democrats do end up with a contested convention, it seems unlikely to result in an outcome in which a previously undeclared candidate emerges from the shadows to win the nomination.
Politico and others have examined Buttigieg and his supposedly ‘moderate’ message. Rhetoric aside, the substance of Buttigieg’s plans seem anything but moderate.
Warren sees a ‘buy-in’ program as creating a natural ‘glide path’ to single payer. She remains quite outspoken in her goal: a socialized medicine system.
Recently, a liberal think-tank, the Center for American Progress (CAP), issued a policy paper that promised ‘the truth’ on waiting times in government-run health systems. That’s not what it delivers.
For reasons both practical and philosophical, Warren and her technocratic ilk might benefit from some humility as they seek to remake the health care system—and the nation.
The Labour Party has raised the specter of the Conservatives ‘putting the NHS up for sale’ to reach a post-Brexit trade agreement with the United States.
The broken culture within the Indian Health Service demonstrates how government-run health care systems provide poor-quality care, often harming rather than helping vulnerable patients.
Researchers estimated eliminating patient cost-sharing from a single-payer system would raise total health care spending by nearly $1 trillion per year.
People who believe they can receive ‘free’ care over-consume it, with the types of rationing and wait times seen in the past several years the inevitable consequence.
Forcing everyone into socialized medicine, and dissembling to voters while doing so: That’s the agenda the American people saw on display in Atlanta Wednesday evening.
To say single payer would cause widespread economic disruption would be a gross understatement. Medicare for All is a disaster.
No matter how Elizabeth Warren spins it, middle class taxes will have to go up to fund Medicare for All, an independent non-profit reported Tuesday.
Republicans and Joe Biden are making a huge mistake by focusing on cost. The implication is that government-run health care would be good if we could afford it.
Calling anyone opposed to single payer a ‘corporate shill’ patronizes and insults the American people—the same people whose support they need.
Even the ‘moderate’ proposals would sabotage private coverage, driving everyone into a government-run system. That’s probably why Democrats don’t really answer questions about their health proposals.
If Democrats don’t like Obamacare plans for themselves, then why did they force all Americans to buy this insurance under penalty of taxation?
