Without Medicare for All (M4A) private insurance attached to one’s employer makes employees hostages to their corporations, an antiseptic form of slavery.
It should not be hard to sell Medicare for All. The problem is that there are forces that have indoctrinated much of the population and it is aided by the media as I pointed out recently.
Without Medicare for All we are hostages to the corporations
But the GM Strike should be probative to us all. The man on the screen shows how a corporation can use something as important as health insurance as a weapon. Denying cancer treatments to the son of a worker was an example of how the company was coercing if not intentionally by corporate structural self-centered design.
That is why it does not belong either in the private sector or anywhere close to the company one works for, period.
Those who continue preaching that they want the freedom of choice should be on board. Right now the company via the insurance company tells most which doctors they can see and which medicines they are allowed or not allowed to take. With Medicare For All, that is a decision between you and your doctor — not a mandate from your private insurance company on the behest of your corporation.
Our fraudulent healthcare system is profitable to many. We discussed this on a recent Politics Done Right show where we talked about the obscene profits these companies make as they bankrupt many.
According to Axios, health care profits explode. As Americans are suffering because of insurance they either don’t have or are unable to use because of prohibitively high deductibles, the health care industrial complex is awash in profits. Those profits were effectively extorted from Americans.
So do not be fooled. Do not fall for the corporate promoted con. Medicare for All is the most efficient solution bar none.
