As promised, I am continuing to rip up the Senator Bernie Sanders “Medicare For All” plan. I will explore a little kink in the assumption of the single payer popularity myth that was certainly exposed in last November’s general election in Colorado where single payer “health care” managed to make it to the ballot.
Despite recent failures in at least three states, over the last few years, to establish some kind of single payer “health care” system, that Senator Bernie Sanders so fondly refers to as “Medicare for All,” Sanders has once again proposed it for the entire United States. This seems to be a rather irrational idea because even when a strong effort was made in Bernie’s home state of Vermont to get such a system established, it failed abjectly.
After I wrote my previous blog post about two important principles expressed during the Free Market Medical Association conference, the truth of those principles have continued to be confirmed in my mind throughout the past week, and will, no doubt, continue to be.
