When You Can’t “Buy In”

When You Can’t “Buy In”

It isn’t just that Kamala Harris has the gall to straight-up rip off the name “Medicare For All” for her hack-ass healthcare proposal, nor is it just the convoluted, typically technocratic Rube Goldberg nature of her grand plan, nor the fact that it builds on the “success” of Obamacare – a healthcare policy written by the Heritage Foundation. It’s the fact that Kamalacare involves the health insurance industry – the heart of the very problem we’re trying to eliminate.

And don’t get me started on all her talk about “buying in” – basically no different from Obamacare, where people who are already struggling are forced to have “some skin in the game”, in the words of our beloved ex-President.

Oh, and it’s going to be phased in over ten years. Ten years. Fat lot of good that’s going to do for all the people having to crowdfund their surgeries and are being gouged for their insulin right now.
