Nobody likes health insurance companies. They’re the worst. Except for government health care. That’s even worse.
Now the bread line candidate is doubling down on his call to kill health care in America and replace it with Cuban medicine.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, late Tuesday reiterated his call for the elimination of private health insurance companies and moving to a single-payer, “Medicare for all” system of health care.
“You’re damn right,” Sanders wrote in a tweet in response to a Republican National Committee Research tweet pointing out that he called for eliminating private health insurance during an interview earlier in the day.
In that MSNBC interview, Sanders said the “current system is incredibly dysfunctional and wasteful” and said universal health care can’t be achieved “unless you get rid of the insurance companies.”
It’s incredibly dysfunctional and wasteful. Because it’s a hybrid private-public system.
Much of it is dysfunctional because of insane government regulations that are driving doctors out of the industry and forcing huge mergers, creating massive beasts that serve as an argument for government health care.
It’s Obama’s Cloward-Pivenization of health care. With the eager cooperation of the big corps that saw short term profits without caring about long term consequences, and assumed that the government would be in business with them in some way, shape or form.
They didn’t foresee an old-line Trotskyist like Bernie getting the nom.
