    Medicare-for-all is fine...as long as people understand that will be facing serious rationing. I'm for anything that makes access possible for all but please realize that this system is unsustainable. Your 24 weeker will not be going to NICU and people over 70 (or so) won't be getting that CABG; that's what it will take. The rest of the world seems do just deal with it, but our winner-take-all society equates more procedures with better medical care.

    Medicare is non-profit and operates on a 1.3% profit margin,ins cos,operate on a 20% profit margin and screw the insured,if we had medicare for all and everyone paid we could once again reclaim # 1 in the world for health care,but what would happen to all the poor CEO'S WHO MAKE MILLIONS FROM OTHERS MISERY,What about cheeeeeney the frikkin neo-con bastard who got a heart transplant at the age of 71 with his govt insurance that we pay for,my fam spends 8 grand a year and then were responsible for 20% of our cost,we need socialized med now!!!! I witnessed 5 elective cabg surgeries get completed before they took a 24 yo stabbing victim to the OR, also it took 20 units of BLOOB,27 manhours of nursing(yes,3-4 rn's fighting to keep this kid alive) while the md's made sure they did the ones they would get paid for first,that was the day I lost all respect for these self proclaimed CHRISTIANS who showed their true colors that day !! OUR SYSTEM IS WRONG but the ones who have the power to change it make too much $ to change it!!!!

    Even if we had Medicare-for-most, Darth Vadar would still get his heart transplant because he could pay cash. Hoping you better luck
    in the future with your health care plan.
