  •  And single payer is our way out of this hell (5+ / 0-)

    we(mostly Repugs) have created.

    Take Medicare, medicaid etc out of the federal budget.  Set up a new institution, a clearing-house for single payer and everyone pays into it according to their income (including dividends, capital gains).

    Yes, you can structure different levels of service depending on what sort of service you can live with.

    A first class service would mean you would not have to wait for elective surgery and you would have to pay a lot for that.

    An economy class would have a smaller payment and more c0-pays.

    Bare bones would mean a wait for elective surgery etc.

    I am sick and tired of the private insurance profit-takers while those working poor suffer for their gains.

    If we do the right thing, we can't go wrong!!!
