As I’ve noted often over the years, Republicans and conservatives have had a couple of decades to reach Americans with information about the problems with government-run healthcare and have failed miserably. Here is a new video from Prager University:
If you get sick or suffer a serious injury, you not only want medical care, you want quality medical care. What’s the best way to get it? Through a government-run program like Medicare for All or through our current free market system? Stanford policy expert Lanhee Chen has the answer in this video from Prager University. Get informed. After all, this is your health we’re talking about.
