You Can Have Single-Payer When You Pry It From The Oligarchy’s Cold, Dead Hands
Caitlin Johnstone

Beneath all the political b.s. is the overwhelming power of

the health care dollar. The reason single payer will never make it here is that

it would eliminate greed from the system. This is one of the great failings of our society. If an elegant solution to cure all cancers was discovered and it couldn’t make someone somewhere boatloads of cash you’d probably never see it. Or, Big Pharma (or even pharma bro’) would steal it.

Hate to say it folks but good health care for all is a pipedream. We’ll never see it.
