Medicare is currently a program that provides healthcare support for millions of Americans. It is seen by many as a vehicle that could be expanded to help extend coverage to all Americans. But should this be done?
Yes, Medicare for All will work.
It's a very necessary and needed addition to the US.
Healthcare is a right and should be provided by the government
Healthcare is recognized as a right in many places, but not all. While most developed countries offer public healthcare in some form, the United States is behind the times. Medicare for all would simply put us on par with the rest of the developed world, guaranteeing healthcare to many who cannot afford it.
Similar systems are very popular in other countries
Many of the US's allies in Europe already have models that resemble Medicare for All. In those countries, the systems often enjoy high popularity among the populace, as well as care on par with the US.
Private insurance promotes competition and innovation
Without private insurance, healthcare will become stagnant. The lack of revenue and competition will lead to poorer quality of care and services. Private insurance drives down prices and helps keep high-quality care affordable.
