    AOC once again exposes the corruption of establishment politicians of *both* major parties, this time regarding healthcare.

    Ocasio-Cortez Makes Connection Between 20% Jump in Healthcare Costs and Industry-Sponsored Spa Days for Congressional Staffers
    "This is the healthcare system of 'choice' that so many politicians are committed to protecting."
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/20...s-and-industry

    After end-of-the-year reports showed healthcare costs for Americans rose an average of 20% in 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter highlighted evidence of the cozy relationship between the for-profit health insurance industry and U.S. lawmakers.

    The New York Democrat noted a retreat at a luxury resort in Virginia taken last April by more than 40 senior congressional staffers where they rubbed elbows with and listened to talks given by health insurance lobbyists.

    "One of the sneaky and most corrupting aspects of lobbying is to court a member's staff," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

    Ah, AOC pretending to be an intellectual again. How cute.

    Guess what, AOC? You're 100% correct that healthcare rates are based upon a corrupt system which is vulnerable to lobbying.

    I've been saying that myself. However, Medicare For All is not the solution -- it will just make the problem even worse. That's because the lobbying is often aimed at the Medicare rates, which drive the negotiated rates later set between insurance companies and healthcare providers. So if it's a Medicare For All system, there will be even more lobbying, more corruption, and more wasted money.

    Sad!

    The real solution is to tear down the entire pricing model of the healthcare industry and start over, including introducing real competition for pricing. (Right now it is NOT a free market system!)

    Guess what, Druff. This recent news story completely blows your “Medicare corruption is the key problem with health insurance costs” narrative completely out of the water. Why? Because if the patient in this story had been on Medicare, the medical lab that the doctor steered lab work to would not have been able to charge 20 times the average of such services in that zipcode.

    For Her Head Cold, Insurer Coughed Up $25,865
    https://www.npr.org/sections/health-...ghed-up-25-865

    Instead, the patient went to the doctor for a headache and sore throat had private health insurance, and the insurance company didn’t even bat an eyelid before issuing a massive check to reimburse the patient for the doctor-submitted bill for such services.

    But here’s the real kicker to the story: The doctor this patient saw owed the lab he sent the test work to. So, in effective, the doctor perpetrated a kind of under-the-radar insurance fraud that the private insurance companies don’t bother to investigate because they can turn around and pass the cost onto the policyholders in the form of inflated insurance premiums.

    Bernie starting to get irritated with AOC, who has been pushing open borders -- a position which will make Bernie unelectable, especially in the general election.

    Sorry, Bernie. You get into bed with an idealogue moron with insane ideas (even more insane than yours), this is what you get.
