Currently Medicare is BANNED from negotiating lower prescription drug prices for 46 million seniors. I have been leading a major bill on this for years and this is the time to get it done. ⬇️ πŸ’Š prices now. Not half-way. Not ten years from now. Now.

Medicare cost us $140 plus in premiums out of our checks. It barely covers anything. Why would anyone want expensive premiums with minimal coverage?

Because Medicare for All doesn't work. Let private sectors start there own insurance without government barriers from stopping them. There is only so many people Medicare can cover.

Because Medicare for all is a single payer program and single payer programs are only used in 5% of the world. Universal Multipayer systems like France and Germany are far more effective and successful
