Monetary Sovereignty for Young People, Part 5. Medicare



–Monetary Sovereignty for Young People, Part 5. Medicare

QuoteQuote:
So, in summary:
1. Many Americans cannot afford to pay for health care insurance.
2. Many Americans have pre-existing conditions, so are refused coverage by insurance companies.
3. Available health care insurance, including Medicare, does not provide full coverage of all costs. These costs may be unaffordable for many Americans.
4. The population is aging, which increases the nation’s need for health care insurance.
5. Health care costs are increasing.
6. Businesses have begun to charge employees more and more for group coverage, an increasing burden on the average American.
7. The cost of malpractice insurance can be high, a burden that doctors and hospitals must pass on to their patients.
8. The Supreme Court may overrule some or all of “Obamacare,” because the program requires all Americans to pay for health care insurance.

There is a simple answer to every one of the above problems: The United States government should provide free, comprehensive Medicare coverage to every American, regardless of age or even citizenship.

This would have the following benefits:

–It would this solve #1 – #8, above.
–It would end the need for Medicaid, a huge burden on our financially weak, monetarily non-sovereign states.
–It would eliminate the requirement that hospitals provide free service to patients who cannot afford to pay, and pass these costs on to the bill-paying public.
–It would put dollars into the pockets of the poor and middle classes.
Seeing facts.........

In 2008, the deficit tripled. The deficit tripled again, in 2009. Many people would have predicted that tripling the deficit (twice!) surely would cause massive inflation.

Instead, the economy has flirted with deflation, not inflation, and the government has had no difficulty paying its bills. This is in keeping with history, which shows that energy prices, not federal deficits, have caused inflation. And of course, our Monetarily Sovereign government never has, and never can, run short of dollars to pay its bills.

No one knows whether a $2.7 trillion addition to the budget, which once again will triple the deficit, this time will cause inflation. History says, “No.”

But we know for certain that eliminating FICA, eliminating the states’ Medicaid burden and providing Medicare for everyone will stimulate the economy, save the states from financial disaster, and improve the overall health of America.
funny...........

As readers of this blog know, I’d tended to vote Republican. I’d felt they had a better handle on the economy than the Democrats. However with the election of G.W. Bush, and the takeover by the Tea Party, I now feel the Republican Party has lost its way. What do you think?

Why is the call always "medicare for all" instead of "VA for all?" Why not cut out the middle man of a government run insurance scheme and just have the government run the hospitals, clinics, and ambulances directly? Why isn't the first step in health care reform consolidating the half dozen government programs down to a single one and eliminating all of those bureaucracies?

Government health programs cover 28% of the population and account for 50% of the health care spending in this country and both of those are growing every year as the public sector expands, the population ages, and medicaid's ranks grow. Considering that the government is driving the out of control health care spending, shouldn't the government do some house cleaning to bring it's health care spending in line with the private sector and possibly with international benchmark countries like Norway before expanding their footprint on the health care market?

You tell me.. I'm not stopping it.......... let see Fed MD's w/ unlimited research money solving health care dilemma's without having to ask the first question "what profit is there in this research for me"???? MAYBE something will actually get fixed.
