People laugh but medicare for all will not work, it will kill the elderly.

Medicare pays doctors and hospitals at a much lower rate than private insurers do. The payments from private insurers offset the lower payments from Medicare. Here’s what will happen if these plans are implemented. Physicians would close their practice because they can no longer afford their overhead. Hospitals would also close. Or reduce staff. Purchasing new or outdated medical equipment would halt. Innovation in new equipment, drugs and supplies would also halt. Because of doctors quitting practice and hospitals laying off staff. The general public would experience a lower quality of care and long wait times. But in your mind, who cares, as long as it’s free?
