A Broken Healthcare System

Flawed points:
Universal healthcare is the only way to provide adequate healthcare
The argument against it is racist and based on slavery
Because there was overt racism decades ago means decisions today are based on racism
Calling a government takeover “communism” is a vitriolic campaign that mirrors the racists of the past
Heavy focus on the beliefs of racists diminishing the contributions of blacks
Tied states that refused to participate to Medicaid expansion to the “former Confederacy”
Reality
Reality:
They conflate healthcare and health insurance
One can be against big government, or realize they fail at nearly everything, without being racist
Government control is the actual definition of communism
The failures highlighted in the 1619 project’s we actually government failures (Freedmen’s Bureau, Democrats’ implementation, New Deal policies). Yet, they believe the same government but trusts the government to fix things.
Ignores the accomplishments of blacks – points out that back doctors and nurses started their own professional organizations to rival the AMA, but didn’t stop to highlight the fact that in spite of huge roadblocks, blacks had become professions. (For example, they ignore Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler, the nation’s first black female doctor. Crumpler was born free and became a doctor in 1864, before the end of the Civil War).
The private sector is better and more efficient that government. Take COVID-19, any cure or vaccine will come from the private sector not the government they want to rule everything.ine or in the module Content settings.
