    Thank goodness! If my employer wasn't picking my doctor, I would be. What a dumb title. Who thinks their employer is a credible doctor chooser?

    employer paid health plan is part of the chain that keeps the slaves from thinking of leaving the plantation. The corporate overlords love the system as it is thanks allot.

    Bernie is a stone-cold idiot if he thinks workers are making the same amount of money we made 45 years ago. Are you kidding me? 45 years ago my father was a factory worker making $90 a week. Any idea how much money the GM strikers want? $70 an hour in pay and benefits!

    Bernie is an idiot. Is there anyone left that believes his many new ways of giving away our money have any merit??? His latest is free housing for all. Tomorrow it will be free cars for all.

    Imagine a world where US employers could direct more of their labor costs towards actual wages and where companies that import goods manufactured overseas end up having to cover some of the cost of health care through value added taxes. It could end up being beneficial to American businesses that aren’t insurers and keep jobs here.

    When people make the argument that Bernie will raise your taxes for Medicare for all please explain to them that whatever you pay for insurance at your job now will be half the amount in taxes. I pay $278 bi weekly each pay check. That's over 6,500 a year in health insurance. Your taxes will never go up by that much, not even close. I will much rather pay up to $3000 in taxes than 6500 to these insurance rackets. Insurance companies and drug companies are robbing the American public like never before.

    We see how much more money we had during the 8 years of Obama. Not in my pocket the insurance that he brought to the masses failed so where is all this extra great stuff the democrats bring.

    • Al Clark
      Al Clark 5 months ago

      Obamacare is the polar opposite of single payer because Obamacare leaves the insurance co.'s in charge. Leaving control of health care to for profit health insurance co's is just plain stupid.

      A health insurance co's primary goal is not health care, As with every "for profit" corporation its primary goal and reason for existence is maximizing profits for it's shareholders. Profits are maximized by avoiding anyone with health issues, by denying claims, by fine print plans that don't cover what buyers think is covered, and by the highest possible premiums, co-payments, and deductibles.

      Al Clark Let’s say Americans vote progressive. Everyone gets free health care, free college, cancelation of college loan debt, and so on. Do you ever think about how Corporations and the 1% will respond if the money is coming out of their pocket?

    • Al Clark

      @Stellarspace In our society at this point in time, they just have to vote progressives (a political revolution). And stop falling for the Rep propaganda.

      @Al Clark I respect your right to believe and say what you want, but when bad policy is forced on everyone expect a lot of upset people. If you want another economic model there is nothing stopping you from pursuing it elsewhere. Giving the government more money is a horrible solution for bad (social) monetary policies of the 2000's.

      @Al Clark name me one economic model that has generated more wealth among it's people. (The Scandinavian market economies are not socialist and do not count). You can't. I will take free market capitalism all day over bread line economics.

    The fact that the polls are being run to make it look like Bernie is at 13% all of a sudden proves how the corporate media are against Bernie. When the corporate media are against a candidate, we all know why.

      Dumbass, if you want an example of countries with Bernie Sanders type of social democracy, it's not Venezuela, no matter how many times Fox News and right wing radio hammer "Venezuela" into your tiny little brain, it's the Scandinavian countries, that have robust free enterprise economies, but also have a higher middle class standard of living, far lower debt per capita, fewer people per capita living in poverty, less corruption in government, more accessible and affordable health care and higher education, less extreme wealth inequality, more secure retirement, and score far higher in measures of citizens happiness.

      As Bernie Sanders said, “we don't want to turn the US into Norway, but we would be foolish not to look at policies that have been proven effective an successful in other countries and see if we can adapt them to improve our systems in the US.”

      That is not to say that all policies in, say,Sweden, are good. eg: Their too generous immigration policy. But that policy has nothing to do with "social democracy", and in any case Bernie Sanders is saying that we should look at successful policies, such as single payer health care, more affordable higher education, and less corrupt campaign finance system. He is NOT advocating implementing any policies, such as too lax immigration, that have not proven successful.

We can debate about the healthcare thing but the biggest thing we need to do is bring our troops home and joe biden wont' do that

    Yes and a lot of our current insurance woes is directly because of Obamacare jacking up the system to begin with. The dems had their way now it is time to try a more free market approach.

    Frankly, you need a lesson on socialism, having government sponsored health insurance only ends up with mass unemployment, no full time jobs, every employer would offer no benefits and only offer contract labour { part time } socialism is a poor mans wish for a rich life which ends up in mass poverty.

    • The You Tuba

    Actually, the PERI study, called the gold-standard on MFA by Yale School of Public Health, proposes that employers pay 92% of their current healthcare cost to the government rather than private insurance companies for the first three years of MFA, after which other financing plans can be considered. The truth about MFA is that is substantially less expensive and creates much better health outcomes for the the entire nation. These truths will not go away and will eventually be understood by the public. Prioritizing profit over human well-being may be fine for some unethical people, but its losing popularity in the US, especially with young people. The PERI study also states that MFA would put 5.1 trillion back in the pockets of citizens.
