Maybe American people do not need it since they vote for Trump?
What do you expect from USA education system?
I mean it "works" in Canada even though the wait times are considered a human rights violation.
"but free healthcare is for leftwing socialists, id rather pay 100k for getting a health check at the hospital!"
USA dont give a fuck about poor people. Selfish country, but Iran will destroy them soon
I’m pretty sure right-wing people think Medicare for all is “socialist” or some BS
Everyone above me is autismo, its not that we don't want healthcare for all. Its that no one has a good plan of how to get it to all people, all the plans so far are just crazy high taxes for the middle class that hurt everyone except the poorest of the poor.
only betas need health insurance unlike alphas like me
that's why i love germany. if you think about it germany excels in every aspect [education (really good universities for free), healthcare (people don't go broke getting ill), welfare (you don't have to live on the streets when you lose your job)] and much more. people who are living in germany should just take a moment and compare the quality of life to other european countries or even the US (lmao)
I like my vastly superior healthcare. Thanks. I dont want your free african doctors/nurses.
So no one is making any arguments in here so let me try.
The arguments that people are using against Medicare for all is:
1. It will lower the quality of care and slow medical innovation.
Which is kinda true, for rich and upper middle class people their insurance might actually be better than a government run system. And as far as i know the advancement of medicine mostly comes from America, and is funded by these companies who profit off of the medicine and that drives innovation in medicine. (not all but majority)
2. Longer wait times for specialist, leading to possible death before care.
People usually point to Canada and the U.K for this one, where it might take a long time to see a specialist and end up dying before getting to see one, As far as i know this is possible and true it might take months to get to a specialist, where in America I can get to a surgeon in 2 weeks.
3. how will it be paid.
In America people are afraid of any taxes, it doesnt matter if they dont even get taxed, just the thought of a tax being placed and possibly hurting the economy is enough for people to run away. And with Sanders not being able to prove exactly where every cent is coming from is where people get really scared.
4. A lot of people dont want to lose their insurance, some people love their insurance and dont want to lose it in M4A
But overall i support a Medicare For All but dont think its the best option I dont see a reason to eliminate Private insurance and i think it is a hard selling point, but i do think if Bernie or Warren were elected we would end up keeping some private insurance.
I apologize if there is any spelling errors or maybe missing words or something i have been awake for 24h and am exhausted.
why people deserve medicare?
if everyone has his bills paid off, why would he control his greed for food/sex/addictions, protect himself, keep a healthy lifestyle and avoid dangers?
everyone get punished for his own fool, laziness, greed, lust and bad emotions. this is how capitalism works.
Well, what you need to understand is that you can't just change it back, it can't be fixed.. so they just have to work with what they got. And honestly, I'd vote Trump any day over Hillary.
due to same reason why others basic needs like water of food and shelter aren't free as well
this world evolve around profit
and it's the only value that people in power are obsessed with
America doesn't believe in healthcare, They prefer to pay 40k $ for birth of a child.
They believe in guns tho and They call it "freedom".
Obviously easy access to guns is the reason of school shootings or any mass shootings but who cares. FREEDOM
a lot of people here are assuming a few things so ill clear it up (im an engineering student and if this dumb tax bill gets passed by chance bernie becomes president, which he wont, will affect me a lot because the average engineer salary fresh out of college is 50-70k min and goes up to 6 digits)
- free health care will not kill private health providers and obviously wealthy people will want to keep their salary and not have it taxed heavily because paying that private health care provider will get them better care and cost less than having a massive salary taxed by a high percentage (assuming bernies insane 50%+ tax bill gets passed LMFAO). this is why a lot of americans, especially upper-middle class and up, do not support free health care for all
- with that said, it is undeniable that america has some of the best PRIVATE healthcare in the world IF you can afford it. i say if because if you cant, oh well, have fun with 40k+ hospital bills. right now there is a severe imbalance of the best health care that will burn the average u.s citizen's savings and health care that is affordable and not horrendous
right now, trump and bernie, the 2 most likely candidates to be in office, do not have the right answer. trumps tax cuts are screwing less fortunate people and while some may be lazy and not contribute anything to society, some work hard and just struggle to get out of their situation. and bernies insane tax bills will lessen the motivation to work in the american workforce because who the fuck wants to study and work their butts off their whole lives only for over 50% of their earnings to be taxed into free healthcare that they dont want when they can pay a private provider for much better healthcare? people who are making those big salaries that will be heavily taxed by bernies tax bills are more than happy to pay a private health provider for better care, which already exists. and that gives bernie a bad communist-esk rep in the eyes of many right wingers
overall, obviously trumps will encourage more people to work hard for good jobs and ultimately, make more money to afford private health care. but there are areas in the u.s that need improvements and government funding to their health care system to not be disfunctional and our current taxes are not sufficient to fund it
and before some people say "wHy dOeS tHe u.S hAvE MoNeY tO fUnD ThEiR MiLiTaRy bUt nOt hEaLtHcArE !!!!", the effects of 9/11 are still felt throughout 18.5 years after it happened and as a result, the u.s wants to prevent an attack of that caliber no matter what. also, yall gotta remember that the military personnel are paid a salary. otherwise, how will they support their families? we have the most powerful military on earth and intend on keeping it
sorry if this was a lot and a bit messy, im kinda tired rn
universal healthcare works in alot of different countries
