    Considering the disaster that the ACA is becoming, considering the ever growing costs of Medical care in the US. The raising drug costs, etc.

    It got me thinking. Is Universal Health Care inevitable?


    I'm not trying to start a political discussion or a flame war. That is not my intent, but as agents...what are your thoughts?

    That is an expression, not a racist comment.

    Inevitable? Yes. With the advances of technology, expansion of Medicaid, and the probably soon to be option of buying into Medicare I think we will see universal coverage with in the next 20 or 30 years. Hopefully it is closer to the single payer Medicare option then the full blown government ran socialistic option. IMO

    Hopefully they'll be a few merciful physicians on those death panels
    You know the ones that will decide if someone can get that expensive treatment or not

    Probably just a maximum age of 100 then they just put you down or send you into the wild of global warming to survive the elements.

    Who knows if she would have recovered given a little extra time

    Coming next year. It is called MACRA

    As for "universal health care", Medicare/Medicaid for all, etc., tell me this. Name a country where it is working.

    Michael Moore says it's great in Cuba. And I believe him because he makes movies.

    We're 5 years away from single payer.
