    The government wants to control everything, if they get control of health insurance they will start pulling a Stalin.

    You want to see how the government handles healthcare, just look at the horror show at the VA

    If the government takes over they will force people to do unnecessary things in order to continue receving services just like they already do with Medicaid.

    The government has made a mess of everything it touches. I would never want them to take over my health care. You could be denied treatment or die waiting for it.

    As far as the government running the entire health care system, no thank you. These people can’t manage money at all. The almost 30 trillion in debt shows that. The government is loaded with college educated people who are as dumb as a box of rocks. No common sense. No fiscal responsibility. The Republicans are almost as bad as the Democrats when it comes to spending. Or we wouldn’t be where we’re at today. Medicare should be for senior citizens who have paid into it their entire lives. Not illegal immigrants or refugees. Social Security and Medicare are in trouble because of government mismanagement. Not lack of money. Hire competent people to run it and keep Congress out of it as much as humanly possible.

    Not “run,” but have a semi-regulating hand to insure quantity and quality of medicine, practices, and practitioners. We cannot have a medical community where “every one does as he or her pleases” and/or where people are excluded by intentional or accidental history. Social Contract, the philosophical basis of the US Constitution (Preamble), requires caring for the neighbor as much as caring for the self.

    Our so called government should have no say over our medical insurance. It will be far to costly. The Democrats are already well on their way to ruining our country not to mention that their putting us in so much debt on top of what we already owed that we may never recover! Mr. Biden is not a well man everyone see’s it and Harris is a joke so that leaves us in Pelosi hands and this woman is no longer for the American people. Democrats have become what I call evil. I along with so many other American people are terrified what this country will look at the end of their term.

    The only successful Medicare systems that WORK are those controlled by honest GOVERNMENT. In this Country we are at the mercy of the Insurance Industry and Big Pharma. Who sit on each others boards, while also sitting on major Hospital boards across this Country. They have great influence on the prices charged for medical procedures. They have a healthy BOTTOM LINE while “We The People” are continuously suffering.

    The ones that think it’s too expensive can afford Health insurance for their Heath needs. They have no empathy. Republicans think only about themselves. They don’t care about the social good of everyone being able to access a doctor.

    Wow everyone is entitled to medical services, but as it is people cannot afford what they need because big pharma is about the all mighty dollar, and when you need help you can’t get it without being totally down and out. I don’t understand why our “government “ allows excessive fees for medication, surgical procedures and mental health issues. I think if the “government “ took responsibility for Medicare for everyone it would just need to be evened out

    Our insurance governed health care is an abomination; it’s stupid, costly, and is unfair…. We are the only nation, on this planet, that has this ridiculous system…

    The insurance company people are playing drop coverage, not enough funds in insurance Account, and incompatibility between work and Medicare insurance.
    Medicare insurance lady is playing Doctor and no funds in insurance Account.

    They are BOTH crooked…paying an annual medical stipend would get rid of both and keep medical expenses at a minimum. And, I would have something I can use even though the Doctor’s can’t fix the problems that I have from cancer, car accidents, etc.
