While the vitriolic call for nationalized medicine/healthcare in the US by socialist entitlement seekers spans the media, the UK nationalized healthcare is in a shambles and talk of privatization is paramount!
Let me rephrase that.
The UK is considering ways and means to privatize their nationalized healthcare system because it is an abject FAILURE. As in – it Does Not Work.
Still, Bernie and Poko were adamantly proclaiming that if elected this is exactly what they will create – a Medicare for all system. I wonder what the massively profitable insurance companies think? Likely they are laughing hysterically because the ‘plan’ is completely unviable, would shutter hospitals, and see the common theme of doctor and nurse shortages evidenced in Canada, the UK, France and Germany.
But practicalities and logic are unreachable by two candidates who have never held a real job.
Warren wrote a number of books that were highly criticized for lacking substantial research, taught a few classes in which some of her students awarded her for her style, and wrote a blog for Huffington Post. Her most prestigious credential is her appointment by Harry Reid to chair the five member Congressional Oversight Committee for the implementation of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act. In laymen’s terms, that Act was the impetus for the 2008 bank bailout that cost US taxpayers upwards of $700 billion to a trillion in order for bankers to make $100 million annual salaries and fly their private jets exuding plumes of toxic ozone decay so as to enable them to go hither and there including the Global Climate Accord while vehemently complaining about global warming.
Her entire education was attained by fraudulently claiming she was American Indian and thus eligible for scholarships, awards and grants. Her 10 years of college would be worth about $500,000.
That is the entire extent of Warren’s business acumen. Her net worth is upwards of $11 million and I would guesstimate she has no intention of ‘sharing’ it with anyone – including illegal immigrants.
Sanders is a member of the Socialist Party. After going to college (graduation not noted) he worked self-described odd jobs here and there, carpenter, etc… nothing noteworthy according to his biography. On a whim he moved to Vermont and became mayor of Burlington (population 35,000). Vermont has the smallest economy of the US and a population equivalent to Boston. It has -0- jobs growth and -0- business growth. It ranks #47 as best states for business, and #46 as best state for environmental regulation by Forbes.
Sander’s wife has been mired in corrupt and fraudulent charges including possible bank fraud. She earned her doctorate through an online service school, and became President of Burlington College, a tiny no-grade progressive school with 200 students. She resigned as a result of the fraud, and received $360,000 in pay and severance. Rather largess for a tiny school?? While the matter is being investigated by the FBI, the Democrat US Attorney in Vermont recently dropped the investigation.
The Sanders reported net worth is $2.5 to $5 million. They own 3 homes, which they purchased for cash in the last ten years – roughly $1.5 million. Would the Socialist share his homes and new found wealth with anyone? Likely, NO.
Given the abhorrent lack of any business experience, neither Sanders or Warren have any idea how a Medicare for All could possibly be implemented, the loss of jobs, the implosion of the Insurance Industry, and the devastation of our healthcare. As it is, few doctors will accept Medicare patients given the burdensome paperwork, and the incremental fees. Doctors have begun retiring en masse since the implementation of Obamacare. According to a report by the Association of American Colleges, published in 2011, US specialties will reach a shortage of 91,500 doctors by 2020. The main reason – retirement.
That shortage will increase to 122,000 by 2030.
Medicare For All means doctors will be paid even less, few will go to the lengths and financial devastation of medical school, and those shortages will quickly ramp up incrementally.
But Sanders and Warren have an Agenda. Socialism for everyone – but them.
