    "Medicare for all" is the latest buzzword among the collectivist left. Even Dianne Slimestein has been stung by this one as she has been booed (literally) for suggesting a complete government takeover of the healthcare system is not a great idea. Even a broken clock is right twice a day...

    But I'd like to hear from forum members who support this latest proposed tyranny if this "all" includes the millions of illegal aliens who are not even supposed to be present in the country or if "all" refers to just citizens, legal permanent residents, and others duly authorized to be residing in the United States.

    Obviously I am opposed to the idea, but am doubly opposed to including the illegals in this taxpayer-funded largesse.

    Since no one is illegal, of course it will

    Right now anyone collecting Medicare has paid into it and continues to do so while being eligible to use it.Every Social Security recipient has Medicare taken out of their monthly check.I for example have paid into Medicare continuously since it's inception under LBJ.

    Those are the kind of answers I'm expecting from AOC/Pocohantas/Bernie.

    I don't think you will get them to answer this question because they want to say yes but they know that is unpopular so they just hope no one brings it up.

    But at the present time 61falcon's statement is still true.

    It's not Venezuela yet.

    Lol, I’m busted! Kinda why I started tgis thread. Let me state plainly in no uncertain terms all public benefits should be reserved for citizens and individuals lawfully present in the country and duly eligible to receive them.

    Yet oddly the question remains unanswered.

    First off Senator Feinstein was talking about something OTHER than Single Payer Medicare for All when she was booed.

    Secondly the CURRENT Medicare Parts A and B are FULLY FUNDED by Payroll Taxes and Premiums therefore there is NO TAXPAYER "LARGESSE" involved.

    Currently ER's do NOT determine the immigration status of those who arrive and need medical care.

    Since we do NOT currently discriminate on the basis of immigration status then why would be an issue for Single Payer Medicare for ALL?

    If Single Payer Medicare for ALL was FULLY FUNDED by Payroll Taxes and Premiums then everyone who paid those taxes and premiums would be entitled to coverage.

    Because it's effectively a lump sum payment to illegally enter the country.

    Fallacious assumption lacking any substantiation whatsoever.

    As I see it, the problem is that people without money or coverage will go to hospital emergency rooms so we are damned if we do and damned if we don't.

    Bit defensive? Did I strike a chord?

    If you live in Burkina Faso free medical care is absolutely an inducement to migrate. A moral hazard.

    Of course, good jobs are too - but that's the sort of inducement that attracts Burkina Faso's best and brightest and leaves them without their top 10% citizens which is good for everyone except Burkina Faso.

    Continued failure to substantiate your bogus allegation only harms your own credibility.

    You've got to have the nuts sometimes if you're going to constantly bluff nonsense. Everyone here sees through what you're doing.

    YOU made this utterly BOGUS allegation!

    You have been called out to provide substantiation for this IMAGINARY "lump sum payment to illegally enter the country" and instead you have deflected because you are INCAPABLE of backing it up.

    That effectively DOWNGRADES what little is left of your dwindling credibility.
