Bernie Sanders fires up Kansas Democrats at Topeka rally

Bob - show one format that includes "someone else to pay for theirs". It cannot be done because it does not exist. YOU subscribe to the misinformation dynasty.

Now explain how everyone in America contributing THEIR tax dollars to cover the cost of Single Payer Health Care for their own health care is the same as someone else paying for theirs. YOUR tax dollars and MY tax dollars paying for our own health care is hardly you paying for my health care coverage.

As it stands there is approximately $2 trillion tax dollars covering the cost of healthcare for not everybody when in fact that same $2 trillion would most likely cover the cost of Single Payer Health Insurance for the entire nation. Eliminating the unnecessary expenses as Single Payer does makes for more efficient use of our tax dollars.

Single Payer Health Insurance comes free to no one.

how to decrease coverage

how to increase taxes in one fell swoop he calls a health care plan.

Letter to the editor: Reforming health care

Seven years after the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Democrats seem finally to have secured a crucial element for its preservation: a robust grass-roots movement supporting it.

Pro-ACA protesters attended more than 100 rallies held Saturday across the country, organized by an activist group affiliated with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). That followed a congressional recess week during which GOP lawmakers were confronted by defenders of the health-care law in town hall meetings across the country. Numerous Democratic officeholders also held events touting the law’s successes.

The surge in activism comes as congressional Republicans prepare to take their next steps toward repealing the ACA, also known as Obamacare, and replacing it with what?

Numerous GOP aides and lawmakers say that the goal of their system is to ensure universal access to insurance, not universal coverage. = SPIN AND BS!

The Republican plan could potentially cause millions to lose their coverage, and they have sought to highlight cases of sick Americans who might not have been able to access health care if not for the ACA.

A consultant’s report shared at a National Governors Association conference this weekend, obtained Saturday by Vox, shows that recently floated GOP replacement proposals would indeed lead to a major decline in the number of insured Americans.
