An amazing new video is gone viral on social
media posted by the Twitter account politics, Joe underscore U K and in this video, Britains
were asked how much they think American citizens pay for certain kinds of healthcare. You know,
certain services at the hospital or at the doctor or certain medications. And all of
them were shocked at how badly American citizens are getting screwed with our healthcare system.
Here’s a brief sniff a snippet from this video. Take a look. So two EpiPens. How much do you reckon they
are? $80. $600. $40? I’m afraid not. More? More. A hundred dollars? $150? More. $250
More. Shut the fridge. 300 pounds. $600? What? Why? That’s a very good question. $600 yeah. For me it’s more like just hives and shortness
of breath. So it wouldn’t be like an immediate death situation. But like, so I’ve been fortunate
about how to use it, but it’s something like, keep on me. Like I have my backpack right
now. I have it on me. Cost of childbirth. She’s um, 50 grand, something ridiculous.
Now I’ve blown it. I’ve blown the figures up in your head. And I have an odd cause they’re
large. It’s the highest generally speaking. About 30 grand. Okay. Okay. Reasonable, reasonable.
It’s so, it’s just like now I’m like a what? A benchmark. A hundred $200. Yeah. Uh, the average is about
10 grand. It can go up to 30,000. 10 Grand for a baby? An inhaler. $100. Yeah, you’re
pretty close. It’s a bit more $120? $250 – $350? For an inhaler. Yes. So if you’re poor, you’re
dead. I believe the young woman said it best when
she said, so if you’re poor, your dead, which is pretty much how the United States system
of healthcare operates today. If you’re poor, you’re dead. Her little soundbite, right?
There needs to be a campaign video, but only for the politicians who are actually pushing
universal healthcare. Medicare for all single payer plans. Not for your Medicare, for all
who wanted people, but for your Bernie Sanders types. If you’re poor, you’re dead. And that’s
not an overstatement. That’s not hyperbole. That’s what’s happening in the United States
today. People are having to ration their medicine. They’re having to hop the border both North
and South to go to be able to afford medications to stockpile it so that they can actually
afford it. And again, this is a uniquely American occurrence. Other countries do not pay the
markups that we pay here in the United States. Their governments negotiate drug prices. We
don’t because we’ve made it to where we can’t. We have promised drug companies that we’re
not going to do that because those drug companies are the ones who fund most of our politicians.
The healthcare industry funds them to the insurance industry funds them to the hospital
corporation. Every part of the healthcare system has their dirty little fingers on at
least one politician making these rules, allowing these companies to continue to gouge us at
the point of service. This has to stop and the only way to stop it is Medicare for all.
Not all who want it? Medicare for all period. End of policy. That’s the only way. And you
can’t phase it in either. I’m sorry you can’t. I do like Elizabeth Warren, but her, let’s
take our time. Put her feet up, just gradually get to Medicare for all. Nope, that’s not
good. That’s not good enough. People will still die. So let’s Institute a plan that,
yeah, guess what folks? It’s going to be a little painful at first. It’s gonna be a little
hard to figure out in the first couple of weeks and after that, everything should be
okay. Change is hard sometimes, but not as hard as losing a loved one because they couldn’t
afford their insulin. Which would you rather have a couple of weeks of confusion about
healthcare or sticking someone you love in the ground because of the price gouging from
big pharma.
