    Healthcare is a highly contentious political topic here in the United States, and rightly so. The stakes are high and we should absolutely adopt the best system we can get. This book explains how the proposal offered to replace our current healthcare system by Bernie Sanders and others would not only not improve the situation but also make it worse. Chris Jacobs, a writer at the Federalist, outlines the harms Medicare for All would have on medical innovation, the economy, and the elderly.

This is so far the best book I’ve read making the case against single payer.

    Chris Jacobs is the smuggest asshole to have ever assholed. His knowledge of economics, health insurance and the health care system can be written on the tip of a pin and still have room for legions of angels to dance on while flipping him off. This is a cute piece of Trumpster hysteria, but really, Chris should keep these fantasies confined to dirty bedtime talk between him and Ben Domenech. I'm sure these irrational distribes get them both hard, but then that's what it takes when men have no s Chris Jacobs is the smuggest asshole to have ever assholed.

This is a cute piece of Trumpster hysteria, but really, Chris should keep these fantasies confined to dirty bedtime talk between him and Ben Domenech. I'm sure these irrational distribes get them both hard, but then that's what it takes when men have no souls and no hearts and have to conjure up ways to keep people downtrodden, in debt and sick just to get a little rise in their tighty whities. For the record, I experienced universal health care in two different countries and y'know what? It was AWESOME. I had far better care than I do in the US - and I have one of the best employer-provided insurance plans around. Don't bother asking me for money for your Go Fund Me when it comes time to pay your inevitable medical bills, Chris.

    Jacobs is a thought leader on health care reform and having gone to his lectures and hearing his experiences on the hill, I had to read his book. It is a well written, approachable and succinct book. It presents the unfeasible health care proposals of 2020 candidates that have no real way to become law. Even if the proposed ideas are only there to start a dialogue, to even to have many of them on the table is very worrisome for the future of health care in the United States.

It is a well written, approachable and succinct book. It presents the unfeasible health care proposals of 2020 candidates that have no real way to become law. Even if the proposed ideas are only there to start a dialogue, to even to have many of them on the table is very worrisome for the future of health care in the United States. For instance the general ceding of spending authority to HHS is a huge bureaucratic nightmare and an open call for abuse of power. He references Sen Menendez's recent controversies. Another example is the ban on private insurance. This then forces people onto government health care where bureaucrats decide what is and what is not covered. We would be left with rationed care, wait times and less innovation. He references the NHS and other international government provided health care as examples of where it doesn't work well. Even Canda and the UK allow for private insurance. It also gave me good insight to how DC works and their political parties. His references to previous health care reforms and the strategies used then shows what is at stake and the tactics involved. There are many more examples he cites, but then I'd be giving away much of the book.

    As someone who is sympathetic to single-payer, I enjoyed this book for challenging my assumptions. He raised several valid concerns- current solvency issues with Medicare, "benefit tourists", waiting lines, the benefits of cost-sharing on keeping preventing excessive care, lower reimbursement rates to providers. Of course, there were many others that I don't agree with because we have a fundamentally different philosophical view about the role of government. However, still an interesting read fo As someone who is sympathetic to single-payer, I enjoyed this book for challenging my assumptions.
