I’ve spent decades studying US health care. Time to get real: Medicare for All is the only reasonable path to controlling costs and covering everyone.
Prescription drugs can cost 80 percent less in Canada, Australia, and the UK—why isn’t the FDA supporting safe importation?
Candidates should not waste their platforms on weak healthcare reform proposals.
It’s the same game-plan they followed when they systematically weakened the ACA before finally getting on board.
It’s easy to get distracted by the President’s more outlandish scandals and statements, but his budget proposal is actually far more insidious.
The healthcare system is broken, and need dramatic bold reforms, but Partnership for America’s Healthcare Future won’t tell you that, because they have no interest in improving American healthcare.
Debt, housing, devastating monthly healthcare payments –these are the top concerns of American households according to a new morning consult poll.
A Medicare for All program addresses the same concerns, comes with the same benefits, and applies to a much larger pool of people.
No matter how you slice it, business, workers, and patients will be paying less.
We’ve finally seen the first ad from the new healthcare industry front group “Partnership for America’s Healthcare Future”. Watch BIHP president Wendell Potter dismantle their biggest lies.
Essentially, we’re letting Big Pharma stomp all over American patients, businesses, and the government, and it’s time to put a stop to it.
The US Chamber of Commerce purports to represent the interest of American business. But I can tell you first hand from my time working in the healthcare industry, they’re nothing more than lobbyists for the highest industry bidder.
This is a first step in what will be a long battle to pass Medicare for All, but it’s exciting to see the new Congress beginning the process early.
Democrats have the chance to be the champions of that reform if they don’t waste their energy on half-measures.
Now that the threat of ACA repeal is gone, it’s time to turn our attention to transforming the healthcare system.
“We need to destroy once and for all the preposterous myth that the so-called “free market” will ever be capable of delivering the health system we need if we are to remain an economic super power.”
