Still Lying

So, I heard a clip in the car of Mitt Romney talking about how he was going to ‘fix’ Medicare. You already know the answer – privatization.

Medicare spends 97% of its money on health care, while private insurances companies spend 80% or less.

The Medicare Part B premium will generally stay the same next year, while private insurance is going up by 10% or more.

Increasing premiums on health insurance is a major factor in health care costs, so how will moving people from the more efficient and stable Medicare system to a less efficient and ever higher priced private system solve anything?

Medicare-for-all would save the country hundred of billions of dollars in health care costs and level the playing field for American workers.
