Conservatives hate bureaucracy.

So when will they get behind Bernie Sanders' single-payer plan, which would do away with the paper-pushing waste in our healthcare system once and for all?

Berniecare is finally here.

On Wednesday afternoon Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders officially unveiled his plan for single payer healthcare, saying it was the start of a long fight to end the international shame that is our current healthcare system.

"Today, we begin the long and difficult struggle to end the international disgrace of the United States, our great nation, being the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all of our people. As proud Americans, our job is to lead the world on health care, not to be woefully behind every other major country."

Bernie's plan -- the so-called Medicare for All Act of 2017 -- would gradually phase every single American into the existing Medicare program over a four year period.

From that point onwards, healthcare would be free -- I repeat, free! -- for everyone.

The would be virtually no co-pays -- no premiums -- no deductibles -- no nothing.

Oh yeah -- and unlike Obamacare -- Berniecare would cover going to the dentist and the eye doctor.

It would also repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funds from being used to pay for abortions.

Isn't this real choice?

Single-payer gives people the ability to go to whatever doctor they want whenever they want without worrying about whether they'll go bankrupt.

Conservatives are all about repealing Obamacare.

So, let's do it and replace it with Medicare for all!

Any democrat not for single payer needs to be primaried. It's time they had the guts to fight for the people. The bottom line is single payer is less expensive and covers more for less. Right now we pay twice as much and get worse outcomes and have millions with no insurance. The only losers will be the insurance corporations and drug corporations who profit from our for-profit-healthcare system... oh and the republicans who fight for keeping those corporations in control of our healthcare options.
