Dwight Michael


As we read and watch the news, as we watch or hear the claims of our president and our presidential candidates, as we listen to the interpretation of their statements by our news commentators, the healthcare debate becomes very confusing. How do we improve our system which presently leaves 28 million uninsured, 40 million underinsured, and is the most expensive and complicated healthcare system on earth?

Authors, James G. Kahn, M.D. and Elliot Marseille, Dr.P.H., recently penned an article for “The Hill” on 8/14/19 entitled Medicare for All: Fears and Facts. They have provided an excellent comparison of the healthcare options expressed by our presidential candidates thus far.

Dr. Dwight Michael is a member of the Democracy for America Healthcare Task Force.

"Will we pay more tax? Please understand that the proposed funding formulas do include a new progressive tax that will pay for our healthcare." 'Nuff said, Doc! Everybody's taxes will skyrocket if the country adopts Bernie's 40 trillion plan. Just No!
