Richard Grayson’s Platform: #2 Medicare for Everybody

twilight zone

It’s time to end the ugly side of the U.S. health care system and join civilized nations with universal medical coverage. Medicare is not perfect, but it keeps everyone over 65 insured. Let’s provide Medicare for all Americans.

  1. Impartial auditors say that the Federal Government needs to raise taxes by $300,000 on every man, woman, and child in the USA to pay for Medicare (in its current form). That totals $1.2 million of additional Federal taxes on a family of 4, unless we reduce the cost of the healthcare itself.

    All of the countries that have universal healthcare are using Value Added Taxes (VAT), instead of Income Tax, to finance their national government. Moreover, in those countries, doctors for universal healthcare receive incomes only a little higher than the median income for their respective countries.

  2. Yes, their doctors are committed to public service, while many of our doctors are committed to getting rich — that’s why they’re as ugly as the guy above!
