So in my opinion, history repeats itself. Democrats make this program i can get behind if implemented correctly. Somehow it costs way more than the 1% can help or even afford, so it ends up skyrocketing prices everywhere. Even if the lower and middle class don’t pay now, they will pay and probably a lot.
Oh and we also have private health insurance and care here in Europe. It’s quite common because there are obvious limitations to one party (the government) doing it all. Many times, employers offer private insurance as a perk, just like you’d see in the US. You probably don’t want to believe me because it goes against your imagined perceptions about how the rest of the developed world does healthcare.
