We are already paying roughly $600 BILLION more than it would cost to completely cover everyone in our country for 100% of the cost of every medical necessity (even RXs) for life, under HR 676 National Improved Medicare for All (NIMA).
But Republican and Neoliberal Democratic politicians continue to advocate that we should instead, continue to subsidize either the ACA or some other system of mostly for-profit health insurance companies (which have proven to be incapable of covering everyone while remaining profitable).
So exactly who do these politicians suggest we should sacrifice to keep the health insurance industry profitable.... the elderly, the poor, children, the disabled, the middle class, young adults....?
Who should we sacrifice to the Great God Profit?
