4 Easy Steps To A Single Payer System

What will it take to get the people of the U.S.A. a single payer medical insurance plan that covers everyone for every medical situation, pre-existing or not?

It’s a very simple solution composed of a few very simple answers, yet one that will take some major work.

1. Put an immediate end to lobbyists. No more campaign donations*, trips, vacation homes, lap dances, meals, drinks, limo rides, or what has been going on in the national and local level of politics. This also means no private visits to an elected officials home, office, hotel room, or anyone getting anything for seeing our decision makers that isn’t open and transparent.

2. The creation of a government run by people that were elected by people, not corporations or vested interests. No campaign donations over $100.00 will be allowed* from an individual or from a company. When you run for an office the government pays for your normal election expenses, and if you win you’re in office.

3. Term limits. For the president, 6 years and then they’re out and back to making a living somewhere else doing actual work, with no possible return to a public office* or influence peddling (see #1 above) permitted. Similar limits to be defined later for Senators, Congress People, Governors, state and local officials as well.

4. Ethics. If you’re in violation (ex: Google Gale Norton and Shell Oil) of the trust of the American people* who put you  in office, you’re banned from holding any public office ever again or aiding or abetting anyone who does. And jail time is not off the table for you or your co-conspirators.

When the above are in place and politicians actually serve the people, and aren’t occupied* with getting elected / re-elected, at that point we will have a fully insured population as do most of the non-third world countries on the planet.

* The present system is full of people who placed getting elected as their first priority, getting re-elected as their second priority, and then in their spare time, time allowing, they get around to dealing with the needs of their constituents.

And a note to those who choose to believe the Fox Echo Chamber lies as presented by the Wicked Bitch Witch of the North, Death Panels already exist and every single day make decisions on who will live and die, they’re usually known as INSURANCE COMPANIES.
