|assunto:||The future of our healthcare|
We all understand that healthcare in the United States is complicated.
Why is it that every other industrialized country has a universal healthcare system while the US has yet to find a solution that works for the many?
Why is it that we spend far more per capita on healthcare but still leave millions without any coverage?
This past week, the Senate began debating the American Health Care Act (AHCA) with a vote on that bill expected to take place later this week.
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 14 million more people would be uninsured in 2018 under the new plan than under current law; and by 2026 the number of uninsured would reach 51 million Americans.
While the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has made strides to cover more Americans, it is estimated that 28 million would still not have health insurance in 2026.
Either way, we have a long way to go.
Many believe that it is time to explore other options when it comes to how we provide healthcare in the United States.
In a joint effort, National Nurses United and The Sanders Institute have published a paper that speaks to the current state of healthcare in the US and explores the option of a Medicare-for-all single payer system.
Thank you for staying engaged,
