Why don’t we treat healthcare as a human right?
In 1965 we created Medicare and Medicaid to ensure healthcare for the elderly and the poor. Today, the government provides healthcare for over 100 million Americans—that's 38% of the country!
But these programs aren't good for health insurance and drug companies' profits. So they've fought against expanding public healthcare tooth and nail, leaving 41 million underinsured, and 27 million Americans without any insurance at all.
It gets worse: People without health insurance are 40% more likely to die than those who are covered, and healthcare costs remain the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US.
But now, we have a plan.
Medicare for All would expand public healthcare to all Americans. By taking the price-setting out of the hands of insurance companies, we can drastically reduce administrative overhead, and cut down on the cost of prescription drugs and hospital stays.
For you that means no more co-pays, no more deductibles, no more out-of-network fees.
Whatever these savings don't cover we could pay for by taxing capital gains fairly and closing other loopholes used by the ultra-rich.
Isn't it time we start providing quality care to all Americans? Together we can make healthcare a human right.
