Health Care Funding Lie

Republicans like to repeat a preposterous lie, that if public medical care is discontinued, it will save everyone masses of money. Yes will save money in fees and taxes, but it will cost at least twice as much to buy those services privately. Americans already spend more than twice as much on medical care that any other country and get the worst outcomes of any developed country because they insist on obscene profits for private enterprise. Further, in America, way more people fall between the cracks without any medical care than in any other developed country. That proportion would get even worse if the public safety net were discontinued.
