Healing the Healthcare Blues with Norman Sylvester
America has the most expensive and least effective health care among the ten most developed countries in the world
Dr. Jill Stein – Healthcare – Washington, DC – 6 February 2015
“We are squandering trillions of dollars over the coming decade on a massive, wasteful private health insurance bureaucracy. By moving to a universal, single-payer, nonprofit health care delivery system… we get a system that people want to defend from government tampering. Non-profit health care covers everyone comprehensively, puts you back in charge of your healthcare, and saves trillions over the coming decade.
What we have right now is 30% of every healthcare dollar being spent on bureaucracy, red tape and paper-pushing. Under Medicare, that 30% shrinks down, but Medicare continues to pay the same insurance cartels who are currently calling the shots. And none of the plans presented can show us the money to get the job done. The only way we can provide health care for all who need it, is by shutting down dozens of expanding corporate wars about extraction, exploitation and extortion. But mainstream media continues to ignore this herd of elephants rampaging in the room.
This is not good enough.
The money we could save by securing the peace and investing in universal, nonprofit, single-payer health care would be enough to provide health care for 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.”
Homelessness and lack of Health Care are devouring the middle class…
