Which Path to National Improved Medicare for All?

Which Path to National Improved Medicare for All?
By Margaret Flowers, MD for Health Over Profit for Everyone. State-level reforms for universal health care are laudable; they are not single payer. Two states with a long history of state-based healthcare reform efforts, California and New York, are hard at work organizing for state bills labeled as single payer healthcare plans.

Weaknesses of S1804, The Senate Medicare for All Act

By Lee Stanfield. S-1804 is not a true “universal single-payer system” even after its prolonged 4-year rollout. For the first 4 years it will essentially be a “public option” in a sea of for-profit insurance companies.

Division Among Democrats Over Medicare for All

Division Among Democrats Over Medicare for All
By John Geyman for Truthout. The Democratic Party, as is the case with the Republican Party, has its own civil war going on as it looks to the upcoming election cycles in 2018 and 2020. Its division over how to proceed on health care shows how wide the divide is among Democrats. Democratic centrists, so ...

Health Care is a Commodity in the US; How We change that
By Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese for Popular Resistance. With just a week left before Congress’ budget reconciliation process ends, the Senate is once again peddling a poorly-thought out plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). If Senators vote before the September 30 deadline, they only need 50 votes instead of the filibuster-proof 60 votes to pass ...

Trojan-Horse Democrats Pile Into House of Single Payer

Trojan-Horse Democrats Pile Into House of Single Payer

It’s great that more than a third of Democratic senators have signed on to co-sponsor Bernie Sanders’s Medicare-for-All bill.
