THE CASE FOR MEDICARE FOR ALL
What we have now, prior to Obamacare, is medical care for only those who can afford it and the rest can die. Obamacare is a start, albeit a flawed one. The drug companies and medical equipment suppliers and insurance companies all end up as winners under Obamacare. They will be able to secure even greater profits from their government-provided patent monopolies since the ACA does little to rein in costs. As a result, we will still be paying close to twice as much for drugs and medical devices as people in other wealthy countries that have national healthcare overseen by their governments. The agenda now has to be to squeeze the parasites out of the health care system and bring down the costs.
