Medicare for All is a garbage idea, but one can make a pretty convincing argument that Kamala Harris has done the absolute worst when it comes to selling it to the American public.
For those of you who have managed to miss her embarrassing routine so far, last night, she added another flourish:
"The odds on favorite is you will be able to keep your doctor."

So basically, she’s a typical Democratic presidential candidate.
That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works. ?♀️?♀️

@kamalaharris showing her absolute ignorance on acceptance of Medicare. While most doctors accept Medicare; they certainly don't desire it nor do they enjoy it, and if given the choice, they will see a private insurance patient above a Medicare patient almost every time.

Except almost all of them also take private insurance, which would go away, along with its higher reimbursement rates. Unless you raise Medicare reimbursements, doctors will lose money and some may go out of business.

Medicare only works – for patient and physician- if it is supplemented by secondary, private insurance plans.
Drive the private plans out of business and doctors will retire in droves.
And patients will suffer long waits to see many fewer doctors.

We won’t. Pray that nobody else will, either.
