    I don’t have a link, it was live TV. But that’s his platform to get votes.

    Can the Left get any more tone deaf?

    Part of the Health Care plan that Bloomberg is campaigning on involves expanding Obamacare (from his campaign website):
    Health Coverage Plan | Mike Bloomberg for President

    "Build on the Affordable Care Act
    The ACA made great strides in helping people who don’t get health insurance through an employer afford coverage in the individual market. Mike would reverse the Trump administration’s attempts at sabotage: He would expand enrollment efforts, restrict the sale of health plans that don’t meet ACA standards, and defend the law against politically motivated lawsuits. He would expand subsidies to cap premiums at 8.5% of a household’s income. He would create a permanent reinsurance program that, by helping insurers with the largest claims, would reduce customer premiums roughly 10%. Finally, because about a third of Americans choose not to see a dentist regularly because it is too expensive, Mike would expand Medicare to include an optional policy covering dental, hearing, and vision care, and would require all states to cover oral health services for adults in Medicaid."

    When you boil them down, ALL of the Democrat Candidates have the same basic proposals for fucking up the Health Care System even more than it is; which amount to doubling down on all the ideas that got us into the current mess.

    I’m sure MB has memorized all 2,000+ pages of the ACA.

    maybe i just wasn't paying much attention to his ads. in fact, i know i wasn't. but what little attention i have paid, in the ones i have seen, he doesn't say he's running for president.

    Sure they do and it's just as idiotic and ultimately doomed to failure as the Democrats "plan".

    Bureaucratic
    Un-affordable
    Inflexible
    Short sighted

    Someday "We The People" are going to learn TANSTAFL and I'm afraid we're going to be learning the hard way.

    It’s interesting, although you thought you were being clever and funny, in a way you are completely unaware of, you actually outlined how many of us conservatives feel about healthcare. That being- less government in the system is better.

    Neither do you. In the end we will have the medical care of other nations. Eventually though it will degrade in care due to costs. There will be limits in medical care over a lifetime. There will be limits in care for existing conditions. There will be age limits set. There will be wait times. There will be massive corruption by providers as many will become wealthy as the hospitals become poorer. Lawyers will become even richer. To keep it going vices of every kind but sexual will become near illegal. And even sexual ones will end up with limited medical care. Hospitals once were medical providers. Now they are medical businesses. They will be even worse especially if there are limits on payments in different areas of care as they manipulate resources from others areas. The connected will get their care of course. That is what will happen along with massive extractions from every person's paycheck or whether it is seen or hidden.

    Obamacare is still around, so of course he's gonna grab onto it. The thing should have been defeated, and a new policy take it's place. If you leave crumbs laying around, then what happens next ??
