Healthcare in the US, profit before the wellbeing of the people

  1. Speaking of insurance … I recently read that some Democrats don’t want to support Biden because he’s not for MFA. That is STUPID!! Don’t they realize that Democrats are a LOT more tuned in to medical care and costs? They SURE aren’t going to get any help in this area if they decide to stay home and not vote, thus allowing Trump to continue TAKING AWAY their healthcare.

    • Hello Nan. I am not sure what you were reading, but they should have talked to the person I listened to this morning. I was listening to one of the people on the negotiating team between the MFA people and the Biden people. They were happy with where the Biden team ended up meeting the MFA people. They were proud of how much the Biden public option includes of MFA. How no costs for anyone under $50,000 a year. How it is a true public option not a HMO or such administered by big business. There were a lot more things like negotiated drug prices so the public doesn’t’ have to pay inflated drug costs.

      I can not think that anyone really thinks that tRump will be more progressive about medical coverage for the people, for the country, than Biden. No matter who was the primary candidate anyone supported anyone would be better than tRump. I did not support Biden during the primary, but I sure do now that he is the candidate. If anyone is really saying that they won’t support Biden because Biden is not progressive enough for them, they are not serious about being progressive, not serious about wanting to stop tRump. There is now only two choices, only two. Either tRump or Biden will be president and hold that power. Everyone needs to decide who they feel more comfortable having that power and vote for that person. Any vote not for Biden is a vote for tRump. Hugs

        • Hello Nan. I was listening to Pod Save America done by people who worked in the Obama administration. They were interviewing one of the MFA people who was in the negotiations with Biden’s platform people. He said people had to realize that Biden won, so that he was willing to listen and move his position was a great thing, also the goal was to move medical care in the US to the most progressive place possible, and you had to ask which candidate would be more progressive on healthcare , which candidate would move healthcare closer to MFA? The answer is clear it is Biden. So if your goal is better healthcare for everyone you have to vote for Biden. The interview was very interesting for me and I enjoyed the practicality of it. It was not pie in the sky, a we get everything we want or we take our vote away. It was a real policy meeting it seems on the best way to adjust what we have to working for what we want to have. Hugs
