  • 1) make health care mandatory (i think it would be good for our economy)

    2) have the government credit already existing insurance companies that we use every day, for lowering costs to business's, people with pre-existing conditions, children, low income families...etc....The government would save much more money crediting existing insurance agencies rather than creating government run shitty insurance. This combined with mandatory health care would also create a market between all the insurance agencies which would dramatically lower the cost of health insurance overall.

    3) I was also thinking about possible tax breaks to Dr.'s. If they could make more money (i know they already bank) there would be happier Dr.'s & possibly more students would want to study medicine resulting in more Dr.'s in general. With all the new people getting health care, we'd need more Dr.'s...

  • Single payer universal coverage. Read up on how well it works in San Francisco; there is no reason why this model cannot be expanded into a national plan
