Yes, THAT Zuckerberg...

Good article by @Sultanknish (full text below) Enjoy this? RT it!…
'The story, ironically enough, comes from Vox.

It's ironic because this is exactly the system that lefties champion.

A system which punishes people with jobs to reward people without.

A social welfare state built on the backs of the middle class and the working class.'
'But when they actually encounter the real thing.'
'The scene is San Francisco's Zuckerberg hospital and its crowded ER (yes, that Zuckerberg), which claims to serve Medicaid patients by ripping off insured patients in two ways.

First, by overcharging them.

Second, by being out of network for all private insurance.'
'So when you get into an accident and show up in their ER, you end up with a huge bill.'
'There's a good reason for that, according to the hospital.'
'It's not normal for an ER to be out of network to all private insurance plans.

But it is normal for patients with insurance to end up paying far more than uninsured patients, even after the insurance pays its part.'
'ERs are losing money on every "underserved" patient which means that you get billed a cool grand for a band-aid.
'That's "honesty".

Working people end up soaked twice over.

They subsidize facilities with their taxes and then, when they get injured, get soaked to pay for them again.'
'But this is the intermittent stage of socialized medicine.

Which doesn't mean free health care.

It means working people subsidize everybody's health care.

Unhappy progressives no doubt think that socialized medicine means free health care.

But nothing is actually free.'
'The Zuckerberg model is how socialized medicine works.

The preferred model of progressives, is some Medicare for All nonsense in which the bill gets rolled into taxes, and then they invisibly end up paying for it through much higher taxes.'
'That's the same thing.

And the quality of care will be even worse.'
