Ever since Senator Bernie Sanders proposed his “Medicare for All” single payer “health care” plan in the Senate last month, with at least 15 Democratic supporters, the liberals have been crowing over it and all its supposed benefits. One would think that single payer (i.e. socialism) is this great utopia in which everyone is truly on equal footing. However, the experience of history has not borne out this ideology.
As Senator Bernie Sanders and his leftist cronies advocate their “Medicare for All” scheme for the entire United States in a push that started Sept. 13, I have already discussed failures in two primarily blue (Democrat) states to implement single payer “health care.” Once again, I use quotes around the term “health care” because the health part of the term is highly questionable as I have outlined in a previous post. http://pollyhealthcare.net/but-everybody-is-doing-it/
Are you wondering why I have chosen the issue of health care to write about? Do you wonder what my background is that makes me knowledgeable about this subject even though I’m not a doctor and I don’t even play one on TV?
When the subject of health care is discussed, as it relates to repealing Obamacare, and what might replace it, one very important definition appears to be missing – that is health care.
