Why yes I do support universal healthcare and believe it is a basic human right
Why should anyone pay for insurance and risk going bankrupt when they see a doctor?

OK serious question but I think people should be able to get healthcare. Why can't they? Shouldn't we take care of sick even if they are poor. Insurance is often a scam

I'm not libtard either.

Massive private sector bureaucracy.

I don't know how anyone thought privatizing healthcare would end well. Although it's nice seeing each and every one of the right's ideas fall apart after a few decades, it's like they're literally wrong about everything and have nothing to offer.

Kind of irrelevant, but I'll bite.

There's a lot of money and powerful interests intent on defending the current fleecing scheme and defeating progressives trying to implement even a single-payer system. It'd be extremely difficult to carry-out an immediate nationalized healthcare system at this time (let alone even propose it).

If you're implying that because there's not an overt movement towards nationalized healthcare right now that means either no one wants it or that it can't work "in the real world", that's an unwarranted assumption.
An excellent rebuttal.

Simply because of the how system is set up. For pharmaceuticals for example, most countries will have one body who decides what price the drug will be in that particular country.
In the USA they don't have this, instead it's the many private companies who bargain with the pharmaceuticals. As you can guess, if 1 person is buy something from 3 sellers he'll get a better deal than 100 people trying to buy from 3 sellers.
America's healthcare system has problems that are deep-rooted in the system itself because they don't believe in government deciding these things. Well now it's biting them in the ass.

I never said that in the post.

I wouldn't say that, there's plenty of government meddling in healthcare today that private health and pharma companies want happening. They mostly want government subsides though, they would hate for an actual "free market" health system without money coming from the taxpayer. The American health system is a pretty intricate webbing of the private and public sectors. Patients have to pay money to companies and hospitals to get better, while at the same time paying taxes to subsidize those companies so they can continue.
If you want cheaper healthcare end Medicaid and Medicare.
If you want cheaper healthcare we should do what the Koch brothers recommended in 2017, transition to a single-payer "medicare for all" plan.
even after the benefits of a Medicare for All program are realized—”additional healthcare demand that arises from eliminating copayments, providing additional categories of benefits, and covering the currently uninsured”—the potential cost of the plan would still be less than “potential savings associated with cutting provider payments and achieving lower drug costs.”
Under a single-payer system, Americans would get more quality care for more people at less cost.

Cooper Bennett

Well I mean it's more of a truism, it's like asking someone to provide you proof that someone will defend themselves from attack.

Will a private company and the people who make a lot of money from said company stand by idly as a threat emerges that may reduces their profits? I don't know, you tell me.

Honestly I don't think you're trying to even argue, I think you're just trying to stall for time.

If you even looked on wikipedia, you could even see which of the Koch brothers sits on the board of directors of the Mercatus center at George Mason.

That's implying that once upon a time healthcare was not privatized, as in people thought privatizing it would be a good thing and it was nationalized, sorry pal, it was not, take your historical revisionism to Europe where it belongs.

The Koch brothers are involved with many "think tanks". I doubt they personally read and or agree with every single piece of literature written at Mercatus and the Cato Institute. Claiming that the Koch brothers recommended the policy is disingenuous.

When it hurts what they believe in and what they've been preaching and what they've stood for all their lives, I think it gives it a certain amount of weight.
Not even a good attempt at appearing level headed. The study was across major news organizations throughout that year, from ABC to Fox to the Nation. I've seen cockroaches crawl away with more dignity than you.
To quote (you)

Which I never said nor acted like. The "healthcare industry" started in the mid-19th century as an association of private doctors which eventually formed the AMA. The duties of public government and private associations would shift over time, but by about the 1930s we see the beginning of some private healthcare insurance taking place. This privatization was forming despite widespread support in the public and in the Roosevelt administration for these functions to be covered by the public sector (if covered at all, they were more concerned about the depression than healthcare at the time). America never started with a nationalized healthcare industry, but many members of the private sector saw that there was a major upcoming push for healthcare in developed countries and worked to ensure that any system would be sufficiently privatized once it developed.

That's what sucks about arguing with the right (or with libertarians, or with whatever bullshit you identify with). You have to at least know some of this stuff, you can't just say whatever the you want and expect it to be given equal weight.
