The public is acting as early investor, putting tons of money in the development of drugs that then become privatized.

They receive no return on the investment that they have made. - @AOC
#Medicare4All
NNU Executive Director @NNUBonnie on why we can't settle for anything less than #MedicareForAll:

"The opposition, the insurance companies and pharma, will come out against anything, whether it's a half-measure or even one-quarter. We have to aim high." politico.com/story/2019/01/…

Another difference #ACA makes!

2010-12: With my Cobra ending, in GA I stay covered via obscure HIPPA protections. My only choice: Celtic Insurance owned by Centene Corp. For my Humira drug, Celtic makes me pay tens thousands up front as pay first & manually snail mail claims 1/
To make matters worse, this insurance takes up to 9 months to reimburse me as I float tens of thousands dollars via savings or credit cards. Other times, insurance says submit my bills (as claims) from CVS Specialty Pharmacy instead, but then CVS hounds me for unpaid bills! 2/
While all this is happening, insurance has no transparency in their online portal or snail mail of the processing, status, or even the existence of my claims! I'm completely in the dark, I have to call & call & call this insurance's customer service representatives for info 3/

<THREAD> I wanted to criticize this crappy proposal in one tweet, but 280 characters is not enough! A "55-64 Medicare buy-in" is terrible health care policy that enriches the private health insurers and places additional burden on Medicare and taxpayers. #SinglePayerSunday
First, a 55-64 buy-in relieves private health insurers of the oldest, sickest and most expensive patients they currently insure by sending many of them to the public #SinglePayer program. At the same time, *insurers get to keep the profitable younger and healthier patients!*
Second, a 55-64 buy-in doesn't contribute to fiscal sustainability of Medicare and allow Medicare to offer richer benefits, b/c Medicare is denied additional "premiums" (i.e. tax) from young and healthy people who use less health care and are forced to remain w/ private insurers.

Let's take a look at this Vox piece vox.com/2018/12/13/181…
Not a single Democrat has proposed socialized medicine (i.e. doctors are employees of the government and hospitals owned by the government) for universal health care, so not a single Democrat has proposed "government-run health care." This is basic stuff, @voxdotcom.
A "rallying cry on the left"? 52% of Republicans and 70% of Americans want #MedicareForAll. But, I guess "centrists demand Medicare-for-all" doesn't really fit your narrative.

There seems to be some confusion about #MedicareForAll. And while we're not sure the questions posed by @politico are being asked in good faith, we're going to answer them anyway.
Q: What does it even mean?

A: Improved #MedicareForAll describes a publicly funded #SinglePayer national health program that provides comprehensive coverage to all Americans.
Q. How would we pay for it?

A: We would combine existing sources of public funding (Medicare & Medicaid taxes, public employee coverage, tax deductions for employer-sponsored plans) with new progressive taxes that would replace our current premiums and deductibles.

It seems that #SinglePayer opponents are gaining traction with the argument that improved #MedicareForAll would require painful sacrifices from doctors. This is false. In fact, the opposite is true. Let's nip this in the bud, shall we?
For starters, PNHP represents over 20,000 American doctors. Our members are passionate about practicing medicine, but they are not interested in taking a substantial pay cut. Under a well-designed #SinglePayer program, they won't have to.
Think about how doctors are paid in our current system. Today, Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance pay mostly on a fee-for-service basis. Private insurance usually pays the most, Medicaid usually pays the least, and Medicare usually pays in the middle.

Defining “Socialist” isn’t hard. You just have to read their work & listen to their leaders

And what you’ll find is frightening

Worse yet, the Dem Socialists of America (DSA) actually has a good shot of gaining power if we don’t wake up & fight back

Let’s read their plan: 1/17
.@DemSocialists want to abolish capitalism and transfer ownership of “essential” industries / related businesses to the govt or worker committees.

Why?

“Wealth is a social creation and should be controlled by society as a whole.”

(bit.ly/2vfQ7E5)
DSA’ers are squishy when defining which industries they’d nationalize. But the list touches every possible business, from food to electronics

Workers would then vote on which role is best for them, similar to the disastrous experiment at Zappos in 2016. (bit.ly/2DKlGNd)

On top of the other threads I have going for supposed 2020 candidates, Joe Kennedy, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Deval Patrick so far, the DNC has announced that it will be holding the 2020 convention July 13th-16th. politi.co/2yhnw62 via @politico
If you follow this post back, you'll find my other threads about Joe Kennedy, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Deval Patrick so far, all leading to an article by the NYTimes that makes legalized bribery sound normal.
I can foresee a lot of bullshit being pulled by the Democrats in the future. Vanity Fair even states that their literal strategy is "don't rock the boat with too much progressivism". vanityfair.com/news/2018/06/o…

I'll be trying to avoid @UHC for the rest of my life, or until we get single payer. Here's a brief description of a terrible experience that really isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things.
I was on UHC, had no problems, then got a new job and extended it for one month with COBRA. Hurt my knee (I was on crutches for two months) and paid out of pocket to cover an MRI, bc doc's office didn't have my new card, couldn't run it. I paid knowing I was in-network.
They sent a claim denial to my doctor (not me, as they should have, since I filed the claim). They needed diagnosis codes. I went in person to the doc, got them, and called them in. They refused to accept them from me.
