Why can't liberals understand that there's no magical place for "free" healthcare to come from?

Doctors aren't gonna work for free, medication is not free, equipment is not free, and medical facilities lights do not stay on for free.

Someone has to pay for "free" healthcare, and that someone is US.

Whatever someone pays for annually for health insurance now, they will be paying at LEAST that much in additional taxes, including people who currently receive health insurance through their employer and seniors on medicare.

And likely more.

Everyone who has a lower cost health insurance plan and only pays an additional deductible when they use it will be paying more in taxes than that whether they use it or not.

The congressional budget office has stated that Warren's plan and Biden's plan are impossible without raising taxes on the middle class.

Don't believe me? Check out all the European Countries that are doing this now. Take a gander at what they pay in taxes compared to us.

And as far as the poor go, they receive subsidies already, subsidies for the cost of the plan and can get financial aid for the bill itself.

5 years ago when I could only afford a place with two roommates, I had to go to the ER for severe kidney stone pain, had a $1600 dollar bill, and their financial aid program forgave 100 percent of my bill. Two years later when I was making slightly more money, I had another one and got 79 percent of the bill forgiven

But under your plan, we'd all be paying for everyone, INCLUDING people who can already afford it and have good health insurance now

Update:

Warren's plan and BERNIE's plan I meant to say. Biden is slightly less delusional.

    Why don't conservatives/rightwingers understand that nobody deserves millions of dollars a year? Where do they they think THAT money is coming from?

    You seem to misunderstand.  In a socialized medicine system, doctors are paid.  In the UK, they make roughly the same amount as doctors in the US.  Medication is paid for.  Equipment is paid for.  In our current system, it's paid for by insurance companies and the few people who can afford to pay for their own medical care.  In a socialized system it's paid by the government, out of taxes.

    The problem is that the US health care system is already ridiculously mismanaged but it's absolutely possible to spend less per capita on health care than the US does and provide coverage for everyone....in fact, most developed countries have universal health care and pay less per capita than the US does....

    the fact that you had to pay a 1600 dollar bill is the problem with America's healthcare system 

    you kinda just made a point why we need a single payer healthcare system

    Somehow, it seems to work just fine on the rest of planet earth. Rand Paul even went to socialist Canada for his surgery because American healthcare is a glorified overpriced chop shop.

      And Canadian former MP Belinda Stronach came to the US for her Cancer Treatment. That seems to be a net zero at least.

    They know. The overwhelming majority of America's wealth is horded by the top 10%, and the top 1% alone has a good chunk of that. l think these people will be fine buying one less yacht or koenigsegg a year.
