WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE???
EVERY DAY WE GET MIXED MESSAGES
FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP: OPTICS
hopefully the COVID-19 virus (CORONA)
will fade away...
if our health professionals
are allowed to become muzzled and
they do not provide factual information...
Medicare for All
He is still trying to take away
insurance from millions!
a single-payer system akin to Sanders’s plan would slash the nation’s health-care expenditures by 13 percent, or more than $450 billion, each year. Not only that, “ensuring health-care access for all Americans would save more than 68,000 lives.”

It is obvious that I believe
Donald Trump should not remain President...
Here are my reasons:
1. ...of course! Need I say more?
2. President Obama worked very hard to
increase the number persons insured and Trump is
doing everything he can to take away
insurance from millions... why? WHY?
There is no doubt that we spend
too much on medical care - 18.5% of GDP.
(Unchecked, the health care dollar will jump
to 25% in the next few years. We must
reduce the cost to around 10% of GDP
or we won't have roads, education etc.)
I believe that making "business"
the defacto delivery of health care is
The rise of employer-sponsored coverage
Health care is a human right, not a privilege.
We have developed the worst system: forcing
business to compete adding healthcare as
another "fringe benefit" creates
significant havoc to delivery of medical
care (and also creating most bankruptcies);
doing great injustice by treating medical
care as if it were "just like any other
What are Employers' Healthcare Insurance Requirements Under the Affordable Care Act?
Learn what the Affordable Care Act (ACA) means for large and small employers in 2019.
80% of the insurance for health care is provided via the employer;
insurance administrative fees runs anywhere between 10-18% whareas
Medicare administrative fees runs 3% of the health care dollar;
insurance health care premiums are expensive;
any person presenting to an emergency room, whether they have
medical insurance or not, will get medical care;
most persons having employer-provided insurance think they
have good quality insurance and wish to keep it. (Don't forget
Trump is gutting Obamacare, and getting rid of "previous medical
So, let's talk about "MEDICARE for ALL:"
most persons who have Medicare like it and wish to continue it;
MEDICARE for ALL means universal coverage, a single payer, and taxes
paying for everything! (Reminder, you will not be paying
insurance premiums, exorbitant executive salaries and large
and, of course, there will be reason to continue having health
insurance until there is universal coverage!
I believe healthcare is a right; I believe having insurance is wasteful
and counter-productive to good quality medical care; I believe the delivery
of medical care should not be capitalistic profit business.
| THE TIME HAS COME
TO RENAME HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA
THE GAG RULE
The Federal Government via Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence is
attempting to re-insert the GAG rule.
Doctors and other health care providers
will be gagged and not allowed to provide
proper patient information.
I have never followed this GAG rule in the past
and will not in the future.
Every patient deserves all the information so they
can decide on how modern medicine is utilized in
What will be the most significant change
to our health care?
"In the news recently, you have probably been hearing a lot of pre existing conditions in reference to health insurance. Currently, the GOP is trying to repeal and replace the Obama-era healthcare act known as the Affordable Care Act. They plan to replace it with the American Health Care Act, popularly referred to as Trumpcare. Because of this, many Americans are concerned about what will happen to their health insurance if they have a pre existing condition like diabetes, obesity, or pregnancy. At the moment, the ACA offers protections to those with pre existing conditions. However, this was not always the case."

WHAT SHALL WE DO???
VOTE TO GET MEDICARE FOR ALL.
