The case for non-government run health care: Friday afternoon at 3:22 I called my doctor's office (HMO) about getting an appointment for headaches and was told the office would call me back after talking to doctor. By 3:47 p.m., my doctor was available for a virtual video appointment. He was worried about my going all weekend if the headaches were severe. Talked to him for ten minutes or so to make a plan. That's not going to happen with Medicare for all. Of course, most of the credit goes to him being a great, caring doctor, but still, the outcome would've been very different if we had mandatory universal health care.
