Click here to get a sense why Medicare For All is not a crazy idea. If it can work throughout Europe, Canada, and the rest of the industrialized world, can’t we — who already pay far more for health care than any of them do — make it work here, too?
And by the way? I’m no commie pinko: just as charging $1,899* for a wide seat in the front of the plane helps make cramped plan-ahead $139 seats available for everybody else, I have no problem with the wealthy paying a giant surcharge for single rooms or private nurses or even — when it’s not life-threatening — cutting to the head of the line. For better or worse (depending on your perspective), this is America.
*$2,549 if you’re going last minute. (And by the way? Once WheelTug is widely deployed, the $139 folks in 36B will not only land at the same time as the folks in 1B, they’ll deplane just as fast, too, from the rear door.)
