    Default Single-Payer Bernie Morphs Into Public Option Dean

    Single-Payer Bernie Morphs Into Public Option Dean

    Right before our eyes, we are seeing the transformation of single payer Bernie Sanders into public option Howard Dean.

    During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Sanders took off like a rocket, fueled by the promise of a single payer, Medicare for All single payer system.

    His single payer plan paralleled HR 676, the single payer bill in the House of Representatives that now has 72 co-sponsors.

    HR 676 is the gold standard of single payer bills.

    It would deliver one public payer, no deductibles, no co-pays, lower costs, everyone in, nobody out, no more medical bankruptcies, no more deaths from lack of health insurance and free choice of doctors and hospitals.

    That was the promise of Bernie Sanders during the 2016 campaign.

    A question I have had for a while is what happens to the insurance companies? There is no way they will easily go along with this. It is a huge industry in this country and there is no way they will allow themselves to die a slow death.

    They would probably put up a fight and try to regain themselves, but if single payer passes, most would be out of job and probably be working for the Government

    They would make money with a single payer system.. Ton's of it.. Remember "medicare " only pays 80%.. You have to have a supplement.. I haven't heard a single company complain about Medicare and they are ALL in it..

    What I think people don't understand is what Single payer really is,I hear a lot comparing it to Medicare.. First thing Medicare is NOT free.. I pay I think $120 a month that is taken directly from my Social Security check and then $130 a month for the supplemental plan from the union.. It still has a $500 deductible..
    Do I think a single payer would work?? Yes I do.. As long as people realize that they will get what they pay for..
