I think it is very important to note that Bernie Sanders' "Medicare For All" legislation--- just like the Conyers bill, HR 676--- leaves the private for-profit motive behind health care intact--- both in its administration and delivery and both come with a very high price tag for individuals and the government which neither Conyers nor Sanders will address as to how much these plans will cost each of us--- this is a less than honest way to bring forward legislation by leaving the people in the dark as to what the actual costs incurred will be. Just as unethical is the failure to inform people that the private for-profit motive will be left intact by each of these pieces of legislation which neither the authors nor the supporters will acknowledge even though most people, because of the dishonest way both pieces of legislation are being promoted, actually believe the for-profit motive will end.
Making health care "affordable" is not the issue; providing health care as a fundamental basic human right to everyone is the goal and objective and only a National Public Health Care System can accomplish this.
Furthermore, how can anyone make such an outlandish claim that 58% of the American people support this "Medicare for All" when all the other choices have not been explained and included--- this is a dishonest way of promoting anything. Make all choices available to people and then ask them to choose.
Here is what "Our Revolution" sent out:
*Medicare for All is possible: here's a map of nations that provide universal health care for all.
**Americans expect more: 58% of Americans support Medicare for all.
