Many Bernie Sanders support a Single Payer system, but many are ignorant to the fact that it is very expensive, and things like wait times will increase.

May I introduce you to the Social Insurance model, or the Bismarck Model, a system used in countries like Japan, Switzerland and Singapore.

It's similar to our infamous Obamacare, but the healthcare system is more deregulated in the sense, that it allows companies to compete to lower prices, but still bares anti-competitive laws to make sure patients are the superior ones. Everybody is covered, so nobody will go without healthcare

- Shorter wait times
-Cheap Premiums
- More insurance can be bought, for those who need it
-Employer doesn't have to provide it, everybody pays for it
-Every country that has adopted it has a very high standard of healthcare, and spends very little

This system is much easier to switch for the U.S, since we sort of have it in the form of ObamaCare, we just need market reforms to make healthcare affordable for all, while maintaining quality.

Say no to Single Payer healthcare !

For those who think Canada has a great system, Canada is ranked 30th out of all countries for their healthcare system, while the U.S is ranked 37th. Not a whole lot better.

why we suck.

1) We have an amazingly corrupt government
2) We have no competition
3) We think there is nothing wrong by forcing employers and not employees to pay the bulk of healthcare for the entire country, and then wonder why nobody has a good job anymore.
