WE, the People, pay for their platinum healthcare (and all of them are wealthy enough to afford private insurance), so they just don't/won't concern themselves with those who don't enjoy the same benefit.

    I believe "MediCare for All" is equivalent to the "government option" that GOPers demanded be cut from the ACA...single payer. THEY.DO.NOT.CARE.
    True but Trump could propose it. He had been for it years ago before he became a republican. That would set off some interesting fireworks. Dems would have to go along with Trump on that or look hypocritical, then they would only need a few stray moderate GOPers to cross over and also agree to it. Would leave the Freedom Caucus in the dust..

    2/3 of people disapprove of our health care industry because it sucks. It's expensive and not user friendly at all.
    One plan, Medicare for all. Drug prices negotiated. College for young Doctors and those in the Medical profession.

    I do not know what is happening in your state, but Hospitals here are creating their own plans. Premier is one new one. The benefits are getting better each year. If they do not they lose customers.

    I think Trump will now begin to work with Democrats after Republicans embarrassed him so bad. They will get things fixed and many moderate Republicans will help.

    Kasich gave a huge lecture today about working together. Says he has no plans to run again, but is not going away! Claimed it was cruel to take people off of health care.

    That is because they were already forced into bankruptcy by it.

    No it isn't, it's because they're just poor as is.

    Over half of all bankruptcies in this country are medical related.

    You need a lesson in causality. Most poor people are poor because of various non-medical-bankruptcy reasons.
