  1. Those who argues that universal healthcare for all is expensive, need to realise something. The current healthcare in US already cost twice as much as any other major countries. Reason being that healthcare providers are allowed to charge insanely high prices because private insurance companies are discouraged to negotiate the prices (because there are so many insurance companies, competition causes them to lose their leverage against these healthcare providers, ironically)
    Switching to a universal health care system meant that now the leverage goes back to the insurer (government), thus allowing a more fair price for healthcare. That means even if the government (tax payers) needs to pay for more people (like everybody), the price of healthcare can actually go down. So the economics for it is very feasible!
    Many countries have some form of a universal healthcare. But not the US! It should not be a debate on whether or not to have it, but a debate on how.

  2. The counties he touts as successful socialists w/health care for all have very RESTRICTIVE IMMIGRATION LAWS!!! Especially Findland and Sweden. And Sweden is not adopting what Bernie is proposing for funding medical care. They are actually going in the reverse to how Bernie wants to fund it…..and he admitted not knowing the details of these countries, after being asked this question of funding medical care. 🙄

  3. Government regulating the cost of healthcare is a great thing!!!!!! Why should I or anyone have to pay a private seller who rapes the insurance companies $6,000 every month for a supply of GHB for my narcolepsy.

    SECTION. 1. ALL PERSONS born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are CITIZENS of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. NO STATE shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the PRIVILEGES OR IMMUNITIES OF CITIZENS of the United States; NOR SHALL ANY STATE deprive ANY PERSON within its jurisdiction THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS. (emphasis, added).

    On that point, we agree with Sanders: Education and Healthcare for ALL AMERICANS! And that's NOT "socialism!" Are corporate tax-breaks "socialism?" Well, neither are expenditures that care for the American people who work to pay those taxes! Don't we find money for corporate business tax breaks, tax-shelters, and other incentives? Don't the rich and wealthy have tax-shelters, foundations, and trust funds or "secret bank accounts" in which to hide their money so that they don't pay any taxes? Social Security Trust Fund has always been "in the black" – but it is CONGRESS that took $2.14 TRILLION from the fund and replaced them with "IOU's" — It is time that CONGRESS returns this money, and that money did not belong in "the general fund" so that they can spend it on their "pork-barrel-pet projects!" This money belongs to the American people who paid FICA and other Social Security taxes! In addition: We need EDUCATION AND HEALTHCARE recognized as basic Human civil rights! Who wants a sick and illiterate working population in this age of HIGH TECHNOLOGY? Does not our government find $868 BILLION for the military, including so-called "foreign aid" as $3.8 BILLION for the "Zionist State of the Jews" in the Middle-East every year; how about taxpayers' money for roads, police departments, sheriff departments, all government departments and agencies; how about money for TAX-BREAKS to the top 1% wealthy class to the tune of $1.3 TRILLION; how about all the TAX INCREMENT INCENTIVES (T.I.F.'s) to businesses in the guise that they'll "create jobs" for our workers and laborers; or how about TAX SUBSIDIES TO CORPORATIONS like EXXON-MOBIL that had $14 Billion in profits in fiscal year 2009 but paid Zero federal taxes! ALL these programs and revenues are coming from TAXPAYERS' MONEY! How come the Supreme Court declared a "corporate business" to be "a person" under the law but that takes precedence over us, WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, real PERSONS who are the laborers and workers who make this country the greatest nation on Planet Earth! So too, our government can find money to provide decent Healthcare and Education to our children whose parents and other care-givers are paying the taxes to take care of "the country's business." So, Healthcare and Education are as important as all these other expenditures that keep the country working and moving forward! Education and Healthcare are long-overdue necessary mandates for our government, as constitutional obligations that attend to "providing for our general welfare!" Food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and education ought to be held as NECESSARY BASIC HUMAN CIVIL RIGHTS which our form of free government must provide in the same manner that it finds money for everything else on our politicians' agenda! We're all paying taxes as "the American people" — and "what's good for the goose is also good for the gander!" How come such "corporate $$$ welfare" or "corporate socialism" as de facto official government policy is not called "entitlements" when they've been happening so regularly, as opposed to working Americans who, through no fault of their own, must receive government assistance because Wall Street CRASHES the economy to "throw them in the streets!" Congress allowed corporate businesses to move their plants overseas at taxpayers' expense! "The rug has been pulled out from under their feet:" How can they "make a living" when their jobs have been "out-sourced" abroad? Those corporate businesses don't stop operating for profits — why should our working people pay the price for their excesses and abuses of the law? Thus, Fairness and justice demand that our government starts treating us equally in accordance with the 14th Amendment that has secured for us "THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS!" Given that a corporation is a PERSON under the Constitution of the United States of America, WE THE PEOPLE, the American people, as individual PERSONS under the Constitution of the United States of America, must also enjoy the same treatment under the federal and State tax laws in our great nation! As persons, we are equal to corporations, also declared persons, under the jurisdiction of the United States for taxation purposes and other financial considerations, and we must receive equal treatment from our Government. Government cannot disparage or abridge our privileges and immunities of citizenship as PERSONS by denying us both due process of law and THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS under the Constitution of the United States of America for taxation and other financial or revenue purposes! Therefore, Government can find and must find money for every obligation that our public officials deem necessary to keep our country running and prospering — including public education and public healthcare for the American people! All government revenues are TAXPAYERS' MONEY — How come it is being used for some things and not for others? Why is our government "playing favorites?" Who decides how we spend taxpayers' money? WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DECIDE: We have a form of free government founded upon "JUST POWERS FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED!" SO, let's all collaborate together to make it work that way! God bless America: The land of the free and the home of the brave! One nation, UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice FOR ALL! *

  5. Run by insurance industry or by government? The same evils will come to plague our system. Fraudulent claims. Over charging. Price discrimination . Fake prescriptions that are never filled. Fake hospitalization. You name it. Overall, replacing the insurance middelman will lower administrative costs. However, to lower medical costs will take a steel determination on the federal government, state, county , providers and patients. How do we clean up this decades old chain of corruption? Bernie has yet to figure out how to price healthcare , and how much to charge those who participate in his single payer system. What about price transparency? He has been over simplifying everything about healthcare. Yes yes nothing is free. But you must name the price.

  6. you know what? you can take your aggressive government and stick it you know where. Why don't you go someplace where they already have an aggressive government. Everything you people touch get screwed up, why the hell you want to mess with the energy grid now is beyond me.

    Better dead than red you filthy commie.

  7. Veterans actually earned free healthcare for their service and look how they are treated… Americans are going to be bombarded with taxation and the government healthcare system will be a shit show nightmare… our government can’t even get roads fixed and you guys want them to take over healthcare???

  8. I live in the UK and I have never ever paid for any thing to do with healthcare. Our healthcare system is amazing. I can go to the hospital at any point and I get free Treatment, drugs until I am better.. the same for my daughter. I have a good job and earn good money every month and I pay £250 per month in tax for our healthcare service. IfAmericans are paying $11,000 per year per person you are getting ripped off big style.. oh and we do have private health insurance companies in the UK if you wish to use them.

  9. Bolshevik Bernie sanders is a communist masquerading as a social Democrat that buys his vote from clueless young puppets with promises that he can't keep.. He's all washed up…. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has overtaken Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for second place in the race for the 2020 Democrat nomination, according to a poll released Wednesday.

    The poll, conducted by The Economist and YouGov, shows Warren (16 percent) edging out Sanders (12 percent) for second place when respondents were asked whom they would vote for if their state’s Democrat primary or caucus were to be held today. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner, led the pack in first place with 26 percent

  10. Uncle Sam needs to install price regulations on healthcare, all surgical and non – surgical procedures, and no more than $15 a day charge for the hospital room. Contact your Congressman for a bill if you would like. Also the worker and employer needs a monetary award after 175 months of work, regardless of how many employers one had. The citizen or resident will be awarded $350.000 at that time in a lump sum. Now they can pay off a home or start a business. Also people who's job requires them to work away from home 15 days or more on a regular basis will be awarded. This will include produce harvesters of which work seasonally across the country. At 5 years of work, Uncle Sam will award the worker/employee/employer, $225.000, 10 years – $500.000, 15 years – $800.000, and maximum 20 years at $1.2 million. This will be paid in a lump sum. The printing and issuance of money is validated by any kind of legitimate labor and production. Once the project, structure, or business has been completed, Uncle Sam has already been payed back.

  11. This Time around All Voters Need to listen too the People Who are running. Really listen and investigate. Do you know what "Per-Cappa" means. If it's So great, hasn't it been done Soooo many years before? None of these Candidates have lived the normal lives of More than most of Americans. Look them all on both sides and investigate be Smart this Time Around Voters.

  12. Congress Bortow money from Medicare which is Our Money, That We Work For, and Just Put in The Government's Bank so that they can live (Congrees) off Our hard Earned Dollars. With that Increase on Our Money those who do have Medicare should Have 100% Coverage & No monthly Premiums.

  13. Thouvit will never happen in my lifetime, No Medicare for All. America is Not like other countries, it is to Capitalist. Why can't Americans get the same coverage and type of healthcare Bernie Sanders and All of Congress and their families are getting TODAY? ASK BERNIE THAT!
