Every medical employee (incl the VA) salary would have to be cut 50% so they can afford the lower tax rate 😎

There it's figured out now 😎



You're still 49.9 trillion short.


The real estimates say $32.77 trillion short !! 😃


Tomato (long a), tomato (short a).

It was.

Most of it.

You haven't called anyone out for anything. You've typed words that are meaningless.



Not true.

You made a statement claiming the op was a lie.

I asked you to back it up and you have resorted to personal attacks.

That's the kind of substance that I have come to expect from you.

AGAIN, what part of the op was a lie?

You have been asked 4 times now by me and you have come up with nothing.....

Lolz🤪

Medicare for all is stupid! Let's have a look at how Medicare currently works:

www.dummies.com...

"Do remember that Medicare isn’t free. You pay premiums for coverage and co-payments for most services unless you qualify for a low-income program or have extra insurance from another source.

Don’t assume that Medicare covers everything. It covers a wide range of medical services (including expensive ones like organ transplants), prescription drugs, and medical equipment. But there are gaps, such as coverage for routine vision, hearing, and dental care. And Medicare doesn’t cover the non-medical costs of long-term care in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities."

And now let's look at the Medicare supplemental plans sold by private insurance companies, or Medicare advantage you pay more for:

www.ehealthinsurance.com...

"Medicare Supplement insurance plans only pay for gaps in coverage in Original Medicare, and not Medicare Advantage plans (like HMOs or PPOs), stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plans, employer/union group health coverage, Medicaid, or TRICARE (military retiree benefits). In fact, it’s illegal for an insurance company to sell you a Medicare Supplement insurance plan if you already have a Medicare Advantage plan or Medicaid (a government program, separate from Medicare, that helps pay health-care costs for those who qualify, generally through low income) unless that coverage is ending."

More at links- a good read.

So in other words people are currently paying for services and insurance. There is no way that everything will be covered for everyone. It a bold faced lie and they know it.

Elizabeth warrens calculator on her Medicare for all webpage is a joke!

One would think that an economist would know that socialism isn’t viable on such a large scale. I suspect she is well aware and says it anyway. Campaign promises versus delivering on promises. What we here in the sticks call bald faced lies.

To each their own.

Strictly speaking, from a purely economic theoretical standpoint, medicare-for-all is not "socialism."

Yeah it is.

It's not creating new wealth economic growth depends on.

It's destroying it, and killing off an entire economic industry.

Serveral in fact.

Banking,finance,pharmaceuticals,insurance and some I'm not thinking of.

Where the middle class work.

And UNIONS won't like MFA either because it cuts in their collective bullsnip. I mean bargaining.

No, but you can spare me the silly suggestion that you're an authority on economics.

The short answer from all your pedantic off-topic blathering is that government creates money, and money is the measure of wealth that you're crying about.

If the government paid "52 trillion" for healthcare your claim that it would have to be "taken from somewhere else" is both specious and puerile.

TL;DR: All money is created by government period. Wealth is measured by money. The proposition is nonsense.


If not from taxes, government's only recourse is borrowing - except $52 Trillion is effectively un-borrowable

So, go ahead - just print the money, what could go wrong ?

Zimbabwe-style hyperinflation, here we come

BRILLIANT!!
