I believe in a single payer system such as Medicare for everyone.   I was lucky enough to read this from this page… https://thesecularjurist.wordpress.com/2016/07/14/centrist-dems-wary-of-public-option-push/  … and I thank him greatly for posting it.   Hugs

    • I thank you! I support the public option if done as the rest of the developed nations have managed to do it, and we can adjust it for our country. I have traveled a small bit in the military and seen it work both in the military and the countries I was in. Simply put the only thing preventing us from having a health care for all single payer system is the money issue. The fact is that during the Bill Clinton administration they showed clearly how if we simply took the middle man of insurance out of health care we could cover every person, man, woman, and child THREE times over. But big money means big lobbyist. I think you are brave to address the situation and to push as you have. I learned the first several years of my blog that taking on the insurance agencies has real world consequences just for writing what you believe should be. I hope that what happened to me doesn’t happen to you. You continue to make a difference in public opinion and that I believe is the only way change will happen. Hugs
