The talking points against it are the same today as they were when he said that. The number of people who are now against it is just mind boggling. Remember people like NYCEVE writing about how hard people were working on getting us single payer during the ACA debates and how disappointed most people were when it wasn't passed? How can people do a complete 180 from their position that they once held? "But I like my insurance and don't think we should pass MFA" yeah to hell with the millions of people who can't afford to buy insurance. Or have medical debt into the hundreds of thousands even if they do. The number of hospitals now suing people over their medical debts are rising every year. One hospital is garnishing one of its employees who works full time and after they take their cut she is left with an $.54 paycheck. This was reported on Twitter this week.
When healthcare becomes a business, working class people are skewered. Awful behavior by this alleged non-profit hospital. The need for a national health program grows by the day. https://t.co/CCiWGeyhmx

People are paying as much for health insurance as they do for their cars now. And then they are still left owing money for bills that were once covered by their insurance. I'm old enough to remember the days of no copays or huge deductibles and every other item that is no longer covered under health insurance. If anyone is interested in reading the article I posted about the ICD-9 codes and how the system is rigged against us let me know and I'll dig it up. There really is a war against the 99 percent by those in power. Jacking up prescription prices that many people have to rely on should be criminal. Should be..but it's not.
