The president and Vice President cant just “make healthcare better”. It requires congress as well. Do you trust all of these groups with your healthcare? Not saying we couldnt do it...... but it is enormously complex and they dont have a great track record thus far

This issue is more likely solved by individual states rather than a federal bureaucracy.... we have 50 states and 300m people and a Congress that is inept

KPMG 1, right now you pay the extra costs to the insurance industry in the form of profits plus an entire administrative organization trying to pay out as little as possible. Actually people don’t need health insurance, they need health care as medical needs are a certainty, not a risk. There interposition of the middleman here is nothing but inefficient. Thus America has the world’s most expensive care but not the best.

No, probably just more of the same with some minor tweaks. Establishment on both sides won’t change anything.

Try≠succeed. Both sides get so much money from big pharma and healthcare lobby groups that they have no incentive to fundamentally change the current system. Only big beneficiaries right now are insurance companies and pharma and sometimes hospitals.

Biden has been in the Senate for 36 years and the White House for 8. What makes you think he will fix health care now?

Universal government healthcare would cause costs to balloon further than Obamacare already has, and cause quality and availability of healthcare to drop, especially for poor people. Rich people will have the option to buy better private healthcare but poor people won’t be able to afford that, so they will be stick with whatever the government provides, which will eventually end up with healthcare being rationed to control costs as they start spiraling out of control.

Maybe, but I wouldn't necessarily attribute 'better' to a single administration. Before scaling up healthcare, underlying cost of care and admin costs have to be addressed though. Personally, I don't see it getting much better in the next decade. Hopefully costs can at least level off and get trending in the right direction.

You should be asking, will the Democrats retake the Senate and nuke the filibuster.

I think they will try. Which is a huge improvement over the current admin’s approach to actively kill people and increase healthcare problems. “It is what it is”.

BA1 maybe you should look at an actual timeline and some data on what is being recorded as “long” term effects in those who don’t immediately die (“s on long because we aren’t past immediate effects yet, long term is years off). I’m in the 1% that will die if I get it. Thank you for telling me I don’t count as a person that matters in your eyes. I follow the science and specialists. If that is what you believe is “propaganda” you are the problem here.

No. Adding a public option would not reduce costs. It would just hide the costs behind a government bureaucracy that would make it appear "free". We would pay for that bureaucracy in addition to the healthcare costs themselves in the form of higher taxes.
