The progressives and Democrats want to bring in socialized medicine by revamping our entire system. The cost of this will be trillions, and the only real effect will be to insure a few thousand people who don’t have insurance, while at the same time rationing care and raising costs for everyone else.
Why don’t they just leave everybody else alone and subsidize insurance for those who don’t have any? This would be a LOT cheaper to do, and it wouldn’t disrupt everyone else.
The answer to that question is that their goal is not to give everyone medical care – their goal is to get control of more aspects of your life, and revamping medical care is one part of achieving that.
