Concerns Regarding Medicare for All

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Hello, everyone. I’ve been following the Bernie Sanders campaign for a while. I watch the Secular Talk YouTube channel and Kyle Kulinski is by far my favorite political commentator. However, I still have some concerns regarding Medicare for all, free college, and a $ 15 minimum wage.

For today, I want to stick to healthcare. I plan to post about the other issues in the upcoming days. I’ve been watching arguments from both parties for their views on a single payer healthcare system. I want to bring up a few counterarguments to Bernie’s plan that I’ve heard:

1.) Waiting lists

I came across a 10 year old video yesterday by Steven Crowder. In this video Crowder goes to Canada (where he is from) with a few friends and they evaluate the Canadian universal healthcare system. In this video they use hidden cameras to show how long the waiting lists are. He also interviewed people who could not get treatment on time or had to wait for a really long time (months) for appointments that would only take weeks in the United States.

PragerU has a recent video on this topic as well. In it a Canadian discusses a few horror stories regarding wait times in Canada because of their single payer system.

  1. Universal Healthcare hurts medical innovation

I’m not claiming this but I’ve heard people claim that other countries such as Sweden and Denmark can enjoy their single payer systems off the backbone of the USA. The reason they give is that the free market is the reason the USA produces most of the world’s new drugs and medical research.

  1. The Cost

I’m actually not worried about this but I want other people to see the rebuttal. Yes, Americans will pay more in taxes BUT it actually saves you money once you take a way copayments, premiums, and deductibles. Medicare for all will save trillions of dollars

  1. Quality of Care This somewhat ties in to point #1. Do you all think that the quality of care will be as good in a single payer system? We have one in the US with the VA and I don’t know what their quality of care is like. If someone can cite some sources showing that a government run system is better then feel free to share.

My concern is putting healthcare in the hands of bureaucrats.

Overall, I see many benefits of having a single payer system. At the same time it looks like there will be negative consequences. Many people die in the United States every year because they don’t have health insurance or they’re underinsured. I know that medical bills lead to bankruptcy in many cases.

On the other hand, is Medicare for all any better? Is it worse? Because I don’t want to trade one problem for another.

I genuinely want to be informed and make the right decision. So if anything I’ve said is wrong then please correct me and lead me to some good sources if you can.

I support Senator Sanders on several things already (legalizing marijuana, ending the wars, etc.) but I want to be in the right on all of the issues. Thank you all!

I can no longer find the several videos out there that show Joe Biden's lies. Has Youtube actually been taking these down? I used to be able to find them easily by searching "joe biden cut social security" on youtube. But the videos aren't showing up anymore? What the hell is this? Are we in communist China? Am I being stupid or are these videos becoming more difficult to find?

Small Businesses and Medicare for All

I'm working on my conservative in-laws who own a small business with 20 or so employees. They don't like Trump and I'm hoping to swing them from a non vote to a Bernie vote in the general, if not a primary. The idea that Medicare for All would eliminate the costs of paying an insurance company was an idea that made them stop and think for a minute.

Does anyone have a good resource for more details about Bernie's tax plan and how it would impact small businesses?
