  •  it's such a no-brainer (10+ / 0-)

    that a system like medicare kicks private insurance's arse.

    •  True, but the health insurance industry (5+ / 0-)

      is pumping tens of millions of dollars into politicians and spokespeople to prevent people from realizing that important fact.  Money going into providing care rather than into the pockets of corporate execs and shareholders is the way to go.

      When we have Medicare for all, we'll be able to brag that we have the finest health care and not be lying.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
