Everybody would love cheaper healthcare.This reminds me a lot of the health care debate. Naysayers declare things unworkable, unreasonable, or impossible that are actually being done in most other developed nations.
nobody can make the math work. So we stay where we are at.
google says total United States payroll was 10 trillion last year. (Is that correct?)
google says we spent 4 trillion on healthcare.
that’s one big ass new tax. Even if you think the feds can administrate it cheaper it still a massive new tax. If you do it like social security and have employers and employees pay in equally it’s still huge.
you can have a nice conversation of who should earn less (doctors, nurses, ect).
I would like to see a state volunteer to try something but the math is damn ugly. Which is why nobody will talk real numbers.
I would have a national sales tax with no exclusions. Only way to get everybody to pay something.
I would also tax the fat more. Weigh in once a year to get a rebate back. Obesity is the biggest reason healthcare is expensive.
a law not allowing pharmaceutical to charge US citizens more than foreign countries get charge for same drug should also be made.
