Medicare for all beats Obamacare

I'm sick of our government. They lie to us all the time and force stuff on us that we don't want. Obamacare is too expensive, and if you read between the lines, it's the greedy taking care of the greedy.

In these sad economic times, we need to redistribute the wealth. The other day on one of the Fox News broadcasts a comment was made about putting everyone on Medicare or Medicaid. It was like that thought was about the scariest thing Fox News ever heard. I am all for the heath care system in America becoming completely socialized. If we have to take money out of defense, so be it. If we have to stop giving billions of dollars away to other countries to take care of our own, so be it.

The Affordable Care Act is about the worst attempt to get people heath care. Put everyone on Medicare, get private insurance companies out of heath care, and if a doctor refuses Medicare then he doesn't need to be a doctor. If we are going to socialize medicine, then socialize it. Make it illegal to not take Medicare. In fact make it the only game in town.
