One of the many sources of suckage in U.S health insurance, in this case as an "employment benefit".

In almost decade I spent in one job, health insurance benefits became increasingly sucky, year by year. More expensive, more hoops to jump through, more DISINCENTIVES to access, particularly for least-compensated employees.

The advent of the "high deductible" plan and its increasingly ubiquitous status, is the suckiest if the sucky, and shamefully anti-worker.

Everyone can see that prioritizing public health over private profit leads to better health outcomes at less cost. Siding with private profit in the face of this evidence says everything.

@SavageJoyMarie1 @PramilaJayapal @RepJayapal You posted this on March 17, 2021. I agree with you. If #COVID19 hasn't proven how dysfunctional our healthcare system is, nothing will. Stop using #MedicareForAll just to garner votes. Join us on Saturday July 24th!… @M4M4ALL #M4M4ALL

Join us next Saturday! Nadler: 'Eliminating' private insurance could pay for 'Medicare for all' without raising taxes… #M4M4ALL

A thread by BRD for your consideration:

Today is #ArmedForcesDay- too often a day where politicians offer platitudes about sacrifice and gratitude while they continue to send our troops to kill and die in endless wars for profit and power- not justice or freedom. #NoMoreWar /1
They praise us at their events while they gut our healthcare and sidestep accountability for the rampant sexual assault, pollution and abuses on and around our bases. #ArmedForcesDay2021 #MilitaryMeToo #EnvironmentalJustice #AuditThePentagon 2/
They pat us on the back while they line their pockets with corporate "Defense" industry campaign donations and ignore the the hunger, houselessness, and avoidable traumas our families are grappling with. #ArmedForcesDay #22aDay #MoralInjury #HousingFirst #HousingIsAHumanRight 3/

I wish people would talk about why the #ACA wasn't able to have it's full reach. That at every step of the way, it was sabotaged by people who didn't want it to be successful. (A thread) @BarackObama @JoeBiden @FutureDocs
By forcing the removal of the #PublicOption from the outset, there was no low-cost plan that commercial insurers would have to compete against. Read - they charge more #mypremiumsarehigh
By denying constituents #MedicaidExpansion, governors and state legislatures forced people to go w/o insurance and screenings (out of spite) In fact, they would have qualified for free Medicaid and coverage. They yelled, "See how hight your premiums are!" But go ahead, blame #ACA

Because of the Obama-Biden Administration and the #AffordableCareAct, more than 100 million Americans with #PreExistingConditions from heart disease to asthma, are secure in the knowledge that insurance companies can no longer discriminate against them. 3/9 #DemPartyPlatform

It’s that time again! Time to acquaint ourselves with the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. A platform is guiding principles of a party..goals, vision, mission, promise. Only one party has a platform for the next four years..Here is the #DemFuture vision for the next four years..1/12
The last 3.5 years has revealed , at tragic economic and human cost, the emptiness of the Republican Party’s “America First” foreign policy. Under President Trump, America stands alone. 2/12 #DemPartyPlatform
Friends and foes alike neither admire nor fear President Trump’s leadership—they dismiss and ridicule it. The Republican Party under President Trump has made America small—when we are a people called to do the greatest things.3/12 #DemPartyPlatform #DemocraticLeadership

This November, #vote against putting a cap on kids' lives.

3/100 “#Medicaid allows our family to function. It allows us as parents to sleep at night knowing Willa’s safe with a nurse. It makes it possible for us to work. It gives Willa access to the tech she needs to communicate & thrive.” #ProtectOurCare

Our City Council meeting is starting NOW! We’ve got a packed house. You can watch online via Seattle Channel: #MedicareForAll #HealthIsAHumanRights Image
There are a lot of Seattle residents joining us today to testify in support of Rep. Jayapal's #Medicare4All bill! We've heard from a resident in need of affordable long-term care and a physician all in support.
Hearing from a retired nurse who worked in a psychiatric unit. She's in favor of #Medicare4All b/c medication was just too expensive & time with a provider was limited to only 15 minutes. She believe a single-payer insurance program will solve for these issues and save lives!
