Single payer and public option health care should be the norm for our country. Too many infant's die in the U.S., and part of the problem is an inadequate medical industry. We're among the most developed countries in the world, yet our health care statistics don't reflect this. More funding and time should be spent on actual care, and less funding and time should be spent on putting a small band aid on a gaping wound.
Socialized Health Care. Single Payer Yes it will be paid with tax dollars Right now if you're paying on a premium for health care, you are participating in "SOCIALISM". The difference is, that this is "PRIVATIZED SOCIALISM". Which translates to minimal care for you, and maximum profits for corporations. Your well being should not be for sale!
The United States should adopt a comprehensive health care plan for all Americans. It should be modeled on the Medicare program where everyone is covered by Medicare; for the people earning under a certain amount, the doctor would take assignment. The rest would have a supplemental policy of their choice. We are the only developed nation in the world without comprehensive national health care. Everyone wins with this plan.

While the Affordable Care Act has provided opportunity to get many more Americans health insurance, we aren't reaching our goal fast enough. Too many states are denying medicaid to their poorer residents and some individuals find insurance exchanges too expensive. We need a basic health plan like Medicare for all. Since Medicare's inception, we have seen that it's administrative costs are 25-35% those of private plans. Private insurance companies could still sell additional coverage.
We should have a one payer system. Expand Medicare. So everyone would be covered in the USA. It would help young and old alike to get the care everyone needs. No person should have to die because they can not afford healthcare. Also to be more affordable. To pay for healthcare and then get sick and still have a huge bill should not be how it works.
