Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

The bill doesn’t know what problem it’s trying to solve. For more Vox analysis: http://www.vox.com/2017/1/5/14179258/obamacare-repeal-republican-votes-trump You can read the bill here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/06/politics/house-republicans-obamacare-repeal-replace-text/ https://waysandmeans.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/03.06.17-AmericanHealthCareAct_Summary.pdf Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Republicans in the House have finally released a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare: the American Health Care Act. The GOP healthcare bill keeps some of the most popular parts of Obamacare, like letting young adults stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 and requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions. But the Republican bill gets rid of the key element that made Obamacare work: the individual mandate. Now that people aren't required to have insurance, healthy people could leave insurance pools en masse, leaving sick people who are more expensive to cover. Hypocrisy is a minor sin in politics, but still, it is remarkable how much of it there is to be found in this legislation. A core Republican complaint when Obamacare was passed was that the law delayed many of its provisions in order to reduce public outcry and manipulate the CBO’s score. The GOP bill is similarly aggressive with such tricks, delaying changes to the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and pushing Obamacare’s tax on expensive insurance plans out until 2025. Because Republicans aren’t even trying to win Democratic votes, they’re stuck designing a bill that can wiggle through the budget reconciliation process (another thing they complained about Democrats doing). That means they can’t make major changes to insurance markets like repealing Obamacare’s essential benefit standards or allowing insurance to be sold across state lines. That last part is particularly striking, given that it was one of President Trump’s five demands in his speech last week. I’ve always been skeptical about the savings Republicans could wrest by changing those regulations, but now they can’t get those savings at all — which means sacrificing a key part of their theory of cost control. This bill has a lot of problems, and more will come clear as experts study its language, the Congressional Budget Office release its estimates, and industry players make themselves heard. But the biggest problem this bill has is that it’s not clear why it exists. What does it make better? What is it even trying to achieve? Democrats wanted to cover more people and reduce long-term costs, and they had an argument for how their bill did both. As far as I can tell, Republicans have neither. At best, you can say this bill makes every obvious health care metric a bit worse, but at least it cuts taxes on rich people? Is that really a winning argument in American politics? In reality, what I think we’re seeing here is Republicans trying desperately to come up with something that would allow them to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is a compromise of a compromise of a compromise aimed at fulfilling that promise. But “repeal and replace” is a political slogan, not a policy goal. This is a lot of political pain to endure for a bill that won’t improve many peoples’ lives, but will badly hurt millions.

Since the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010 health care costs have gone up by double digits each year. The health care bill did get more people insured and helped with issues like preexisting conditions, but the problem with the healthcare law isn't what it tried to do, it's what it failed to do: reduce costs. The solutions to the cost problem is with the free market and competition. Here are just three ideas that could make a huge difference. Number 1: We can roll back the tax burden on insurance companies. The ACA added a $60 billion tax on health insurers, which made them have to charge more to consumers to cover their costs. Taxes roll downhill so a tax on insurers means higher costs for all of us. Number 2: We can lower the regulations on health plans. The ACA has a lot of requirements that force insurance plans to cover an incredibly big list of benefits. If you want a bare-bones insurance plan that simply covers catastrophic events like a car accident or cancer you currently can't get one. By boosting the benefits of every plan it restricts competition and drives up prices by forcing smaller health insurers out of the marketplace. Low-cost catastrophic plans that are normally purchased by younger, healthier people are no longer available because of the ACA requirements. Introducing as many health insurers to the marketplace as possible can drive down prices by encouraging businesses to compete to cut costs. The ACA did the exact opposite: Less competition and higher prices. Number 3: Encourage medical innovation. The cost to bring a new drug to market already exceeds two and half billion dollars. And the ACA places an additional twenty-two billion dollar tax burden on innovator drug companies, the same businesses that produce lifesaving medications and cures for those in need. Punishing drug producers forces them to charge even higher prices to make up for the lost money in research, development, and taxes. If we encourage, not punish drug makers it will lead to more breakthroughs and lower costs--a win, win for all of us. As healthcare costs skyrocket, don't forget that the free market is our best chance to rein them in.

Seema Verma, the chief of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), called Medicare for All, a "bad idea," saying it would dilute the program for seniors and drain the federal government's resources. She argued that providing Medicare to all Americans would cost $32 trillion. By 2022, she said, it would take up 58 percent of federal spending, compared to 28 percent currently. Administrator Verma discussed the idea as well as the current state of the Medicare program at a conference hosted by America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) in Washington, DC. She also discussed the Affordable Care Act and the Trump administration's initiatives aimed at lowering health care costs. The CMS administrator oversees a $1 trillion budget and health care for 130 million Americans. Full video here: https://cs.pn/2Pyb4mI

Nevada is trying out a revolutionary idea in healthcare coverage. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/ “The U.S. health-care system is, to put it mildly, in a state of flux. The complex system of near-universal access to public and private health insurance created by the Affordable Care Act is being threatened internally by declining insurer participation and externally by the slow-motion riot of Republican plans to repeal and replace it. Within and beyond the Obamacare repeal effort, the Trump administration and congressional Republicans are seeking massive cutbacks in Medicaid funding, partially through a permanent per-capita cap on federal allocations to the states. The CHIP program, a sort of Medicaid supplementary program covering children and run by the states, is up for reauthorization. And in several states, including California and New York, serious initiatives are underway to go in an entirely different direction, with state-run single-payer systems that would in theory replace all existing public and private insurance with a universal insurance plan modeled on Medicare. In the midst of all this activity there’s a new idea percolating up in Nevada: letting anyone without health insurance buy into the state’s Medicaid program. This would include people who qualify for Obamacare tax credits, which could be used to pay for the buy-in; in effect, that would make Medicaid a public option — a phrase you might remember from Obamacare deliberations, when it was a Medicare buy-in — for individual insurance purchasers. Because of Medicaid’s low reimbursement rates for doctors and other health-care providers (significantly lower than Medicare), it should provide an economical alternative to private insurance, though at the cost of narrower provider options (a significant number of physicians do not accept Medicaid patients). Medicaid also has a broad range of benefits, with no co-pays or deductibles.” Read more here: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/06/nevada-is-considering-a-revolutionary-health-care-experiment.html Hosts: Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore Cast: Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

HOW THE GOP'S HEALTHCARE PLAN HELPS MAKE CASE FOR MEDICARE-FOR-ALL…. State efforts toward single-payer healthcare, like California's, could be bolstered by GOP's Medicaid-gutting proposal…. Written by Deirdre Fulton, staff writer… https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/03/07/how-gops-healthcare-plan-helps-make-case-medicare-all?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=socialnetwork The GOP's new plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with something much worse merely supports the argument that the only way to achieve true healthcare reform is to enact a single-payer, Medicare-for-All system, advocates said this week. "Instead of fixing the very real holes in the ACA—and moving forward to a permanent solution for our broken healthcare system, as could be done by expanding Medicare to cover everyone, at lower cost—the Republican plan moves us back, far back, to the worst vestiges of a profit-focused system based on ability to pay and widespread health disparities," said National Nurses United (NNU) co-president and registered nurse Jean Ross. "GOP Care would ... take us farther, not closer, to universal healthcare, a goal that is achievable only through single-payer reform." Quote by Adam Gaffney, Physicians for a National Health Program… To make matters worse, "the architects of the new bill have exploited the repeal and replace meme with paybacks to some of their wealthiest friends and donors," Ross added. There is another way, as Ross' colleague and California Nurses Association co-president Deborah Burger argued in an op-ed on Monday. She pointed to the effort in her home state to "create a genuinely universal system for all Californians, with comprehensive covered services, no insurance networks that restrict patient choice of doctor, hospital or other provider, and no more copays, deductibles, or surprise medical bills." That effort, the Healthy California Act or Senate Bill 562 (SB562), would declare it the "intent of the Legislature" to enact a law that would establish a comprehensive, single-payer healthcare program for all state residents. According to Burger, the system would do so "[b]y pooling what the state already pays for healthcare services, using the power of a single-payer system to negotiate bulk discounts, and eliminating the waste and profiteering of the insurers." The American Healthcare Act (AHCA) proposal put forth Monday by House Republicans only underscores the necessity of the California bill. "Speaker Paul Ryan's plan to shred the Affordable Care Act is a hard-right wish list that will cover fewer people and cost more, and a huge step backward from our goal of universal healthcare," said California state Sen. Ricardo Lara, who introduced SB562 last month along with state Sen. Toni G. Atkins. "We need a way to cover the millions of Californians who will lose insurance or pay more under Republicans' plan, and that's what the Healthy California Act will do." Indeed, NNU's executive director RoseAnn DeMoro added Tuesday, SB562 "could become the national model as an alternative to both the ACA and the fraudulently named GOP American Health Care Act." Previous single-payer salvos have failed, in California and elsewhere. But, writing last week at the Los Angeles Times, reporter David Lazarus suggested: "Thanks to [President Donald] Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress, things are now very different…” He explained…: "We should give our great state governors the resources and flexibility they need with Medicaid to make sure no one is left out," Trump said in his speech to Congress this week. What he and Republican leaders mean by that is giving states a fixed amount of Medicaid money in the form of block grants to cover low-income people. States currently are guaranteed at least $1 in federal funds for every $1 in state spending. The Republicans' goal is for the federal government to pay less for Medicaid annually. But what they're also unintentionally doing is removing perhaps the biggest obstacle to California and other states establishing their own single-payer systems. With block grants, states wouldn't need congressional approval to use Medicaid money for a broader insurance program…“ "If Republicans abandon California and Congress moves to cut Medicaid, we will insist that the federal government treat us like any other state and give us the flexibility and freedom to address the health needs of our entire population through a universal healthcare system," … Lara told the Times last week. Medicaid would indeed be dismantled under the GOP's AHCA plan. A single-payer effort is also underway in New York, as journalist Michelle Chen wrote last week, "where State Assembly Member Richard Gottfried has reintroduced a comprehensive single-payer model reform plan."

Senior Trump Administration official Seema Verma has written that Medicare is in financial trouble, and one step in fixing it is giving consumers "incentives to be cost-conscious." This may be coded language for something called premium support for Medicare, which boils down to patients paying more, and the government cutting funding for medicare. Aaron has the details. This episode was adapted from a New York Times Upshot article by Austin Frakt.

In the latest draft of the Senate healthcare bill, Republican Senators decided to add a provision that would exempt them from having to use the same awful coverage that they want American citizens to have. It isn’t good enough for Congress, then it isn’t good enough for the American people. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

While Republicans in the Senate continue to work day and night trying to figure out the best way to take health insurance away from more than 20 million people in this country, they have actually found one group of people who they absolutely refuse to take health insurance away from. Unfortunately, that group of people is themselves and their staff. According to the latest draft of the Republican health care plan, Republicans have slipped in a little provision that completely exempts members of Congress, members of the Senate, and their staffs from having to purchase or buy into or be covered by this horrendous Republican health care plan. That's right, folks. It's good enough for you but it's not good enough for them. Why? Because they understand that it doesn't cover most conditions. They understand that it's probably not, in its current form, going to cover preexisting conditions. They understand that if they want real insurance that actually works for them, they're going to have to get some other kind of coverage because this Republican plan, the plan they themselves came up with, isn't good enough for them. Perfectly fine for everybody else. It's perfectly fine to cut Medicaid by $800 billion and kick 14 million people immediately out of the insurance pool because they can't afford it without that Medicare money or Medicaid money. It's perfectly fine to slash Medicaid and Medicare, which is going to lead to the closing of hospices, which literally will result in the deaths of people. It will cut down on the money available for people to care for in-home care, which will lead to deaths if you do not have the around the clock care. It's going to lead to some hospitals closing down because they rely on Medicaid funding for more than 80% of their income. Republicans understand that. They're not stupid. They are, but they at least understand that. They know how horrible this plan is and that's why they don't want to buy into it. If you're out here in the United States thinking that the Republicans are actually working on a plan that's going to work for you, I suggest you take a look at the fact that even they don't want it. That's like a five-star chef saying, "Here. Eat my food. No thanks. I'm going to run to McDonald's because I don't want to eat that crap." Would you trust a chef like that? No, you wouldn't. Why would you trust a politician who won't even buy into their own policies? Call them. Call them now. Call them today. Call them all weekend. Call them next week. Make sure they know that you do not approve of the fact that they won't even buy into their own plan. Because if they're going to pass this, if they're going to force it on every one of us, then we're going to force it back on them.

Don't count on it. As it stands, exactly what Medicare beneficiaries pay for prescription drug coverage depends on the specifics of the plan they choose and their income. And while some drugs could cost less under Trump's plan — which is expected to echo proposals already floated in the administration's proposed fiscal year 2019 budget — there's a chance insurers could react to any reduced revenue by eyeing their customers' wallets. "They might shift costs to plan enrollees through higher premiums and deductibles, or shifting drugs to higher [cost] tiers," said Mary Johnson, Social Security and Medicare policy analyst for The Senior Citizens League.” Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Aida Rodriguez, Maytha Alhassen Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Aida Rodriguez, Maytha Alhassen *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

At CNN's Debate Night on tax reform, Senator Bernie Sanders says corporations and the wealthy will benefit the most from Republican tax cuts. He also predicts that the GOP will want to cut Social Security, Medicare and education after the plan increases deficits.

CNN interviewed a panel of Donald Trump supporters about the new Republican healthcare plan, and they expressed feelings of pure dread about what Trumpcare would do to them. According to these Trump loyalists, the plan would be like a “zombie apocalypse,” and many on the panel said that they depended on the government for healthcare services. Makes you wonder why these people vote for the GOP in the first place. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

LIKE and SHARE this video or leave a comment to help direct attention to the stories that matter. And SUBSCRIBE to stay connected with Ring of Fire's video content! CNN's Alisyn Camerota decided to host a panel of Donald Trump's supporters to ask them about the current GOP health care, Trumpcare, whatever you want to call it, basically the Republican's version of healthcare reform in the United States. Now this is something CNN has done several times since the election. You gather up a bunch of Trump supporters, you ask them how they feel about things, and typically they're like, "Oh my God, I didn't think it was gonna be this bad." Well, this recent one talking about healthcare was no different than the ones before it. The Trump supporters in that little panel said that this GOP healthcare bill is basically going to turn this country into a zombie apocalypse. They're predicting apocalyptic levels of destruction to the US population as a result of this Republican healthcare plan. Several of the people in that panel also said that they personally depend on the federal government, Medicaid or Medicare, in order to be able to afford their healthcare, to be afford their prescription drugs, and the rest of them said that they personally may not, but they do have family members who do rely on the government for these things. And if this money to Medicaid is cut like the Republican healthcare plan wants to do, they don't know how their family members are going to survive. Now in the past, I have talked at length about the fact that these people kind of deserve it. They should have known better. They should have understood what they were voting for. But today, I want to take actually a little bit more of an optimistic approach. You see, for years Republicans have been able to convince American voters to vote against their own self interests out of fear. And a lot of these people voted for Donald Trump not because they actually thought they were going to get a better healthcare plan, but because he convinced them that they needed to be afraid of Muslims, that they needed to be afraid of Mexican immigrants. That is what motivated them. They didn't think anything real as far as policy in the United States would change. It rarely does, folks, to be perfectly honest with you. Major policy affecting every American citizen in this country rarely happens. You know, it took FDR in the New Deal to really enact these sweeping policies that affected us, and I think a lot of these Republican voters who were duped into voting for Trump, duped into voting for people like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, I think they thought things were going to kind of stay the same, except that they were going to keep them safe. But now people are starting to wake up and understand the fact that you can't keep somebody safe if you strip them of their healthcare coverage. You can't keep somebody safe if you want to give their tax dollars to the wealthy elite so they don't ... And cut entitlement programs so they can't afford food. You can't keep people safe when you're cutting back on food stamps. And that is my hope for these Republican voters. Maybe they understand the big lie now. Maybe they finally understand that Republicans don't care about the working class. Maybe they finally understand that votes have consequences. They did this to themselves, but if they move forward in their lives and learn from their mistakes, we might be just a few years away from truly good government here in the United States.

This is going to cost you, America. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

The US Department of Health and Human Services’ new proposed regulations would allow Americans to buy short-term insurance for up to 364 days. That coverage is allowed to skirt several of the health care law’s core provisions: Plans can deny people insurance based on their medical history, charge them higher premiums because of their preexisting medical conditions, and craft skimpy benefits packages that will appeal mostly to young and healthy people. By broadening the definition of short-term insurance, the Trump administration is opening more loopholes for more people to buy insurance outside the health care law’s marketplaces. In the eyes of the administration, this is fulfilling a campaign promise that President Trump made to give people relief from Obamacare. “It’s one step in providing Americans with health insurance that is both more affordable and more suited to individual and family circumstances,” HHS Secretary Alex Azar told reporters on Tuesday.”* Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

If President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican controlled Congress follow through on "proposals to cut spending in the state-federal insurance program" federal aid for the Medicaid program will be slashed for the poor. The biggest threat to Medicaid beneficiaries comes from the threat of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Under the Act, federal funding is provided to all states to "expand Medicaid eligibility." Currently, about 73 million people are enrolled in Medicaid and about half of them are children. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/thedailybeast/articles/~3/0rEluJksMwQ/president-trump-and-the-gop-may-cut-health-insurance-for-16-million-people.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

President elect Donald Trump is preparing to take office and some Americans are in fear for their healthcare. With Trump in office and a House dominated by Republicans, the likely hood of Medicaid being done away with is great since it is something the Republicans have wanted to eliminate for some time now. Trump has said he will not get rid of Medicaid but has expressed support for Republican ideas that are looking to eradicate the health plan. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-12-29-US--Trump-Medicaid-States/id-d5ba8f39f751472b8081a19653dc608d http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Uploaded by ECImedTV on Oct 25, 2010 Hello, I am Dr. Robert Williams, Chairman of ECI 2010 has been an historic and tumultuous year for American healthcare. On March 23, 2010, after a prolonged and highly partisan process, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known simply as ACA. Although the ACA will not be fully implemented for several years, this law will have a profound effect on our healthcare system, including emergency medicine and hospitalist services. So, what are the implications of healthcare reform? (slide?) • significant insurance reform, • expanded coverage to more than 30 million people, • a huge expansion of Medicaid, which is a joint federal/state program, • an individual mandate -- meaning that everyone must have health insurance or pay penalties, • higher taxes on the wealthy, • plus, over 2700 pages of details, yet to be determined. There are a several important details not addressed by this legislation. These include: (slide?) • universal coverage --23 million people remain uninsured. Most of these people are undocumented immigrants. • also, meaningful cost control, • tort reform, and • a clear understanding of the long-term effects of the legislation, or • a permanent fix to the physician compensation formula. The ACA was not a quick fix, and paying for health care reform remains a daunting task. Under the new law, financing will come primarily from: • a 500 billion dollar cut in the growth of Medicare spending, • tax increases on the wealthy, and • substantial new taxes on drug companies and medical equipment suppliers. These resources will support Medicaid funding on a national level, but many states will struggle to pay their portion of this program expansion. State funding issues are especially relevant to emergency medicine. Recent articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association and from the CDC report huge increases in ED volumes, which reached as high as 124 million in 2008. Most of this growth is attributed to more visits from Medicaid patients. These types of challenges leave us with no permanent resolution to the physician compensation formula, known as the SRG. In 1998, all physicians were scheduled to receive a 21% cut in Medicare reimbursement effective January 1st of this year. Fortunately, as they have for the past few years, the cuts have been put on hold. The pending cuts represent an estimated $370 billion in costs that were not included in the $1 trillion cost estimates for healthcare reform. This will continue to compound if the physician compensation issue is not resolved and will reach an estimated $500 billion by 2015. There is a lot we do not know and understand about the future implications of this new law, but there are things we know that will affect all of us at ECI and HCI. In coming years, there will be an increased focus in several important areas: (slide?) • higher quality • improved efficiency • increased accountability and verification, and • better risk management. Since 1972, our organization has remained committed to achieving all of these ideals. As a result, we have created a wealth of highly innovative programs that continue to benefit practitioners across the country. This organization has the skills, expertise, and commitment required to meet the many new challenges of health care reform. As a new day dawns in American healthcare, all of us at ECI and HCI are awake, energized, and ready to go! Thank you.

Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-For-All bill has been revealed. Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore, and Ron Placone, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you what’s in it. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/ “Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unveiled Wednesday a new version of his plan to give everybody government-run health insurance, potentially opening a new chapter in the ongoing debate over how to make health care in the U.S. more affordable and available. The plan calls for an overhaul of American health insurance with a souped-up, more generous version of Medicare replacing nearly all private health insurance ― and government exerting far more control over the cost of medical care. It would arguably be the most ambitious social welfare initiative in U.S. history, but Sanders told HuffPost in an interview Tuesday that he believes America is ready for it. “The American people are catching on to where the Republicans are coming from, they see the limitations of the Affordable Care Act and they’re looking at the alternatives,” Sanders said. “And this is a rational alternative.” Sanders has been waging a frequently lonely crusade for this kind of universal health care since the early 1990s, when he first came to Congress. In 2013, when he introduced a previous iteration of the bill, he had no support from his colleagues. But in a clear sign of the idea’s increasing popularity, as well as Sanders’ influence within progressive politics, 16 Democratic senators are co-sponsoring the bill.” Read more here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-single-payer-bill-major-support-senate_us_59b87dc1e4b02da0e13d465f Hosts: Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore, Ron Placone Cast: Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore, Ron Placone *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Help us cover the political revolution: http://www.patreon.com/TYTNation "The healthcare system supported by Bernie Sanders and many liberal-leaning Democrats has begun gaining steam with more Americans, according to a new poll. The poll, from the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health policy think tank, found that: 59% of respondents supported a Medicare-for-all healthcare system in which all Americans would get coverage through a government program like Medicare or Medicaid. Moving to a public-option model, under which people could sign up for the Medicare-like program, would be even more popular. About 75% of the public would favor a program framed as a public option for anyone who wants it.

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions Question: How do you provide free healthcare, free housing, free minimum income, without taxation? Some Possible Hypothetical Answers from an Expert in Simplistic Magical Thinking: The general idea is that all the money is digital and it all stays in a single global online nonprofit free and real time central bank. This is taking the idea of automating the whole economy to it's logical extreme. In this system, producers are rewarded for their products when consumers consume them, but consumers themselves don't need money. Instead of moving money around between banks, businesses, producers, consumers and merchants so that it ends up in large piles hoarded over here and not enough of it over there (for billions of people), you just keep track of the points virtually in a massive cloud-based virtual bank. Since the whole economy is now represented virtually, you can digitally edit the virtual accounts of the poor so that they are now in the middle class. The economy is a game. If people prefer to keep a game going or to have a new game that involves money, you would still recognize virtual money as a medium of exchange that could be used to buy land, but that would be for the business people who want to play the game of running up the score. Most consumers would not need to keep money. Since you'd have to make a transition to the new system from the old, you could merge all of the banks, while transfering all deposits to 100% insured accounts in the virtual central bank, in local currencies, represented virtually. This will make it easier for the citizens to adjust. Since that would end up in a giant pile of virtual money being unequally distributed, using virtual currency and electronic scorekeeping, you buy out all the mortgages and landlords and let everybody own their home. Work would then be optional and we'd have to re-organize the economy based on a new model where everything is paid for and hoarding (saving) would be unnecessary, because the central bank has all the virtual currency in the world and pays for all products without the consumer needing to have the money in the first place. It's a totally new model and paradigm for the whole society. The end of slavery. Let everybody own their home. This includes all apartments and rental homes. Everything goes to the occupants, residents and tenants. The land, the structures, everything. Everybody ends up with private property and a safe home. There's no more incentive for crime. You don't need as many police because suddenly the world is much safer. A left libertarian socialist in the Wikipedia sense doesn't believe in private property. I'm not in that camp. I'm in the camp where everybody ends up with private property. Even though, in a utopian social sense, the central bank is the defacto owner, like a global benevolent kingdom. The idea is that you are still allowing people to play an economic game going forward, if the public prefers to play it like that. You don't have to do it this way, these are just ideas to create an educational discussion. What comes out the other end of the discussion may look nothing like the original proposals that served as consensus focal points to get the discussion started. The only outcome I'm committed to and have a stake in is that we end up with much less wealth inequality, the end of poverty, world peace and liberty and justice for all. Basically you are replacing the petroleum economy with the information economy. Work would be optional. You'd structure it so that there would still be incentives for some people to work - voluntarily (as in by choice). I have no idea how many people would still NEED to work for the society to run smoothly. We'd work it out. People would organize and responsibilities would be re-assigned. Unlimited funding for green energy, electricity, green transportation for everybody everywhere beginning immediately. Massive infrastructure projects all over the world. Unlimited budgets for electric vehicles. We could build a ground-based positioning system that is accurate like our current satellite-based GPS, but it could be made more reliable by creating an intelligent mesh of digitally controlled radios. People wouldn't need to own electric vehicles. They could hail automated electric shuttles to transport them. When I said, "voluntarily," I didn't mean working for free. You would still pay workers who chose to work, but you wouldn't have to work. Basically, in virtual reality, you are God. You can say, EVERYBODY OWNS THEIR HOME, EVERYBODY IS MIDDLE CLASS. For one moment in time, there would be no landlords. Then you could start over, and use money in the traditional sense and provide a digital Basic Income Guarantee that puts nonworkers into the middle class. You can do anything. 7.5 billion bank accounts for individuals, suddenly receiving a payroll. http://hdcolors.com
