Oops. If you have VA or Medicare, you have government-sponsored insurance.

Showing that it takes very little brain energy to just repost YouTube, Instagram, TickTock that seems to support a point of view.

The real beauty of it is that you can find something to support wh**ever you wish. A win, win!

I have Medicare and private secondary insurance from retirement. Works just fine for me.

But I pity people that have to fully insure themselves in the private market.

Yes I do too as well as VA benefits.

Maybe if those people in the private market got jobs it might help.

You on the Left expect me to provide insurance benefits for those who have never worked a day in their life.

You’re so screwed up that everything is based on your political hatred. Your sickness, hatred, is probably not treatable.

Do you want to be waited on by sick people because they cannot afford health care? Look at who are the uninsured--they include workers.

I'll give my 2 cents on the medical system in the US. I'm a 2 time survivor of esophageal cancer and a peer-to-peer cancer counselor. Problems include:
1. The cost to train new doctors is prohibitively expensive; a few med schools like NYU are now tuition fee; most aren't. A friend's son is pre-med at Vanderbilt - cost $82,000 annual. The debt for training is overwhelming.
2. Managed care by insurers is to save the public money; that's a lie. It is to save insurers money. Paperwork for doctors has quintupled in the last 20 years - instead of seeing patients they have to spend hours justifying their decisions to the insurers. The 1st line of the insurers are manned by people checking guidelines that have virtually no medical training.
3. Doctors, nurses became burned out by C***d, many left for easier positions.
4. Doctors are often restricted by regulation put together by legislators that are ill-informed or not knowledgeable about medicine - take a woman that has a non-viable fetus that may k**l her or render her infertile - doctors are threatened by the danger of fines or prison. Gynocologists are leaving the Southern states in droves. BTW, Roughly 10 to 20% of all pregnancies are terminated by miscarriage.
5. Hospitals are overwhelmed by unavailability of traditional doctors say for conditions that could be treated outside the ER like the common cold - no docs they go to the ER.

Kicking the can on the insurance when I was first diagnosed, my drs. wanted a PET scan - its a metastatic cancer. It was diagnosed by full professor at Penn. The clerk declined, I appealed, it went to their medical person declined, I appealed their dr declined. The surgeon said he needed it to find out what he was dealing with - I knew the law and pushed - the declining dr was a pediatrician in Nashville overriding an international expert on my disease. Threatening got me the right scan - what about the poor guy that doesn't have my knowledge or sk**ls?

I was retired when it came back I was on Medicare - much easier to deal with - got my scans and treatment. I would be dead now if I had to have dealt with that original insurer and had to jump through the hoops i did the first time.

Yep, that is the Republican motto. Some people are born with medical

problems, you know, the ones that weren't allowed to be aborted

and others that developed problems early in life. So what is your

plan for these people, take them out and shoot them?
