    Man, the deep state is doing alot of PR work to try and get this thing off the ground. Everything the Gov touches turns to shit.

    No, just factually attempting to show Americans what works pretty much everywhere else.

    Actually under Sander's plan, I would save money, about $500 a year when perfectly healthy.

    Yeah and the only people that want it are either unproductive, uneducated in the matter, or just plain stupid.

    That's agreeable as long as one acknowledges something working there doesn't mean it will work here. Could it work? The chances would, IMO, be better if our government wasn't as inept and corrupt though.

    Sounds like a massive amount of Trump supporters. Midwest families, single income, insurance rates through the roof, not going to the doctor because they can't afford their $75 doctor visit fee, living paycheck to paycheck.

    ...and putting a man on the moon was "impossible" too.

    I know this wouldn't be easy, but it would be the best thing for Americans. ...unless you're the CEO of some insurance company making millions a year in profits while uninsured Americans die.

    "Free" healthcare is great when the population consists of zero freeloaders...

    Oh wait...


    I HATE the tax I pay, and I live in a country with a lot less freeloaders so healthcare for all will never work in America. It only kind of works up here. Tons of holes in the system

    Well the far right wants to scream "socialism" while being a paycheck away from financial ruin, and also while being highly under insured....but that's somehow "freedom" they say.

    I was in the hospital a month ago in Toronto....I really enjoyed waiting 8 hours in the waiting room for the doctor to misdiagnose me.

    It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.

    Serious question, what happens in that situation if you want to go get another opinion? Can just go to another Dr?

    yeah like Shapiro has said Medicare for all just go to your local DMV and add cancer and you'll have your answer to this.

    Long wait times and not being able to get anything done on a timely basis.

    The government only spends money they confiscate through force and borrow from future generations without consent. Even if there weren't any examples of how poorly the federal government running a healthcare system would be, it is fundamentally immoral.

    I’m not a paycheck away from financial ruin.

    Not even ****ing close.

    Also, my insurance is just fine.

    It’s you ****ing libs and millennials that spend every cent you have then bitch and moan when you don’t have money.

    Are you close to financial ruin?
