Hartmann: Medicare For All Stops Greed Not Competition

In this clip from The Thom Hartmann Program, Thom explains how Medicare For All would actually increase the quality of care by getting rid of the profit motive, which makes medical care more about profit than people. He responds to a caller who believes healthcare is a right, but worries about eliminating competition. "Nobody is talking about eliminating competition in the healthcare industry. The only industry where there talking about eliminating competition is the health insurance industry," he explains.


So the real questions are: Should medicine be free? Should every American be able to access it? Or should it only available after bankers, politicians and other greedy capitalists get their pay?
