Covid-19 is the strongest argument in favor of medicare-4-all yet. amirite?

With millions lacking healthcare insurance it goes without saying they are unlikely to see a doctor or, at best, delay seeing a doctor when they feel sick giving the corona-virus more time to spread and mutate. Trump has no clue how to handle this and he cut the CDC budget so they don't have the resources they need. We are totally unprepared to deal with this but
Hey, if you're under 50 and fairly healthy, don't worry, your chances of survival are excellent. If you're over 65 not so much.
C-19 coming soon, to a community near you.

The voters have decided that urwutuis is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

After 65 "medicare for all" won't give one damn whether you live or die.

@urwutuis Please explain.

First explain what "medicare for all" specifically IS.
Because it is NOT Medicare as it now exists.

If you don't know what it is how can you say the argument is weak?

It's not the same. It's single payer and it covers just about everything other than elective surgery.

@urwutuis Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.

So you can't show where....That's because I never stated I did not know what it is.
I simply asked you to explain what it is.
Your explanation is BS.

Are we going to go through the entire spectrum of medical issues ?
Look it up yourself.

@urwutuis Are we going to go through the entire spectrum of medical issues ? Look it up yourself.

Three or four questions about surgeries (all elective BTW), and that's the entire spectrum of medical issues?...LOL

Ooooooh!!!!....No elective surgery, huh?.....DO YOU REALIZE what ALL that does not allow?......Medicare as it exists DOES COVER ELECTIVE SURGERY.
Or do you not even know what elective surgery is, or what surgeries are included in that category?

Bullshit. Medicare only covers 80% of the things it does cover and M4A covers all that and more.

@You obviously do not know what elective surgery is.

Ok soI used the term incorrectly. You knew what I meant you just want to bust balls.
I said it covers everything medicare covers and more.

@urwutuis Bullshit. Medicare only covers 80% of the things it does cover and M4A covers all that and more.

But even 80% is elective surgery coverage, and YOU already stated that M4A covers "just about everything OTHER than elective surgery"....YOUR words.

Medigap takes over IF the patient has taken out Medigap coverage and has met their deductible.

Medigap? Medigap is insurance. It costs. So does medicare B
Deductable? You're kidding right?
your pitiful insults have no effect on me but they do reveal some things about you.

@urwutuis Medigap? Medigap is insurance. It costs. So does medicare B Deductable? You're kidding right? your pitiful insults...

The anon poster never stated that Medigap was not insurance. I think that is why the anon poster stated "if" the patient had Medigap coverage and had met the deductible. Also the poster never stated it did not have any cost. But elective surgeries are covered. It was stated earlier by Sanders plan by the OP that just about everything other than elective surgery is covered. Big difference.

Where's the breakdown of everything that M4A covers that you are using?...You are ignorant of what elective is. Your statements prove that. I'm not surprised.
