Why Private Health Insurance Makes No Sense ❧ Current Affairs
Why Private Health Insurance Makes No Sense ❧ Current Affairs Comment by Don McCanne How often have you heard people say that we can't afford the taxes to pay for single payer Medicare for All? Even President-elect Joe Biden said during the campaign, "How are you going to pay for it?" Regular readers here understand the efficiencies of funding our entire health delivery system through equitable taxes, but it is sometimes difficult to explain that to individuals who are hung up on the concept that taxes are bad. Although the full article is somewhat long, it is very useful to explain to those willing to read it why paying for health care through the tax system is a vastly superior method to our current inefficient and inequitable method of financing health care. The full article should be shared with those who still think that private insurance is a better way to fund health care when clearly public financing is the right way to go.
