The proposal, which Sanders is calling the “Medicare for All Act of 2017,” looks a lot like the plan Sanders touted as a presidential candidate. As the name implies, it envisions giving everybody living in the U.S., including undocumented immigrants, an enhanced version of Medicare with virtually no out-of-pocket spending as well as dental, vision and hearing aid coverage. It would more or less wipe out private health insurance and give the federal government the same power to set prices and establish a national health care budget that most other democratic nations have.

America has a lot of built-in seemingly insurmountable obstacles, that make real progress impossible, like the Republicans, like the 2nd amendment, like racism, etc.

I like Bernie, because he envisions a really improved American 2.0, where we revolt against the status quo, reject the arguments against real progress and demand REAL progress.

He makes people mad, because he asks for what the system cannot currently give, not what it can.

The system is broken. When we accept that the current system is broken and demand real change, we will get it.

We may not get universal healthcare in America any time soon, perhaps never, but what Bernie proposes is what should be.

It is not impossible, other countries have it, and it works for them. But the obstacles to universal health care are many and powerful in this country. Big pharma, big medicine, insurance industry, greed, selfishness, people without vision, and those with blinders on.

But the movement towards REAL sanity is swelling. Bernie has 15 co-sponsors in the Senate now. He had zero when he first proposed it in the early 1990s. Real progress takes time, vision, and determination. Which is why I stand with Bernie.

Greed!

The reason some private healthcare providers do not accept Medicare is greed. Medicare sets a low price for drugs and services. They want more.

Bernie and experience from other countries that have universal healthcare have cut the prices for medicine and medical services in half. Capitalism and the free market reject caps and limits. And the rich (corporations) are greedy and strong here in America. They will fight this tooth and nail, and reject it if given a choice.

If the cost of medical and legal education are reasonable, then more people can afford to attend those schools, and more people will. If the cost to attend medical school stays high and the rewards are lowered, yes, fewer people will attend, because more will be unable to afford to attend and fewer (the greedy) will lose interest in it. Lets be honest, a lot of people become doctors and lawyers, because of the prestige and money, not because they want to help people.
