$32.6 trillion dollars. That's how much Washington Democrats' single-payer healthcare proposal would cost over 10 years. Even doubling all federal individual and corporate income taxes wouldn't cover this cost. It is just absurd.  ~ @SpeakerRyan  When someone says that Medicare for all costs $32 trillion, we should mention how our current system costs $49 trillion.  Medicare for All would take the excessive costs of insurance, hospital facility fees, and prescription drugs out of the equation.

Gonna start a company where people pay me $400/month for access to pizza, and when they want pizza they can call me for preauthorization and I'll tell them where they can go, how much they can buy, and what kind they can get. My company will pay for 50% after the first $250 spent. ~ @Progressive_RN
It's weird how American propaganda tries to justify the cost of their healthcare by trying to make people believe the almost free healthcare we have in Europe is shitty and we're all just living in squalor hoping we can move to the US at some point to live out our American dream. ~ @afterglowws

100% of the doctors at Walter Reed are paid by the government. 100% of the employees at Walter Reed are paid by the government. Walter Reed is 100% government-run, socialized healthcare. That type of care should be available to every American as a right, not just the president. ~ @GunnelsWarren
