Health Care instead of Insurance Scams: Universal, Single-Payer, Non-Profit ~OO~ Everybody In

Dr. Jill Stein – Healthcare – Washington, DC – 6 February 2015

Green Party candidate Jill Stein in Roxbury, Massachusetts on July 5, 2012.“We are squandering trillions of dollars over the coming decade on a massive, wasteful health insurance, private health insurance bureaucracy. By moving to a single-payer, Medicare-for-all system, we get a system that people love and want to defend from government tampering, and that system covers everyone comprehensively, puts you back in charge of your healthcare, and, in addition, it actually saves us trillions over the coming decade, equivalent to that austerity plan that they were talking about. What we have right now is 30% of every healthcare dollar is being spent on bureaucracy, red tape and paper pushing. Under Medicare, that 30% shrinks down to 2% to 3%. That’s enough to cover everybody. And we deserve that.


Stein was endorsed for President in 2012 by Noam Chomsky, a linguist, author and activist, and by Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and war correspondent, among others. She is as real as it gets.”
