One should never expect Trump Cult members to deal with FACTS. 

 

"Medicare for All" is NOT Medicaid."Medicare for All" is paid for by the people who are working and paying Medicare premiums out of their paycheck.

 

Medicaid is a welfare program where health care is provided for free to people who cannot afford to pay health insurance premiums.

We already have "Medicare for All". It is commonly called Medicaid. If you don't make enough money to buy real healthcare insurance and you're not eligible for Medicare, then you qualify for Medicaid. Don't like Medicaid? Maybe the left wants guaranteed free housing, free cars, free cell phones, free insurance, and free food all compliments of people working hard to PAY for their own!


You are incorrect. It is  called ER Care. As I said all should learn the subject before trying to discuss it.


That would seem to indicate that Medicaid needs fixing. Why not push for that. In other words, why mess with a program that is doing it's intended thing rather than fixing one that isn't?

Leave it to the conervatives to worry about how much they will have to pay to get a baby the medical care it needs. This is no more wealth distribution than paying for a bridge or the military. A society needs to keep its members healthy and this is the most cost efficient way of doing it. 


It's hard to sell universal health care to a group of people who only care about themselves, even if they themselves have government provided health care.


It is difficult to have such a discussion with those unable or unwilling to understand the difference between "earned" and "given". The above is a perfect example.


Right now we have Medicaid and we have those who simply go to an emergency room with no money and no insurance. There will always be some that health care is "given" to. Do you prefer that they die in the streets?


It would appear that Medicaid is in need of fixing.

 

Yes, there will always be "given". My point was that "even if they themselves have government provided health care" seemed to indicate a lack of understanding of the difference between earned and given.

It is also difficult to have such a discussion with people who have no concept of what a government does.  It is in society's best interests to have working infrastructure, an effective military, law enforcement, and other services.  Conservatives don't seem to feel that funding those items is any kind of income sharing but try to change the funding method for health insurance to a one proved more effective and less expensive and they go bat puckey. 


People also need food - shall the government control all food distribution? People also need housing - shall the government control all housing. And the list goes on. No bat puckey in that - just honesty.

Thank you for posting the truth about Canada's national health care and how it wroks so well.  If this is "Socialized Medicine", then we should have it.  The Right here uses the word "Socialized" as a scare tactic, LOL !!!
