Reality-Based Hope


We can and will get national single-payer health care, Improved Medicare for All.


 

Elements of our reality-based hope

1. The best will be ours. Our version of universal health care will be the best. Reality-based hope includes our realistic expectations, based on years of very positive experiences in other countries, both in the health statistics and the personal expressions of peoples' experiences, mainly Americans who live and work in the other countries.

Our uniquely American universal health care will be the best health care for all in the world, establishing more job opportunities and peace of mind. See the explanation

2. Our campaign is based on the positive aspects of Americans' future.

Communications to Americans about a positive future. Health Care Patriots will be a major help in getting universal health care in the United States, because we are taking the positive approach of having millions of Americans become informed about the incredibly positive results that we will get. The education of tens of millions of Americans uses the reality that knowledge is power.

Preparation for change. Americans will be comfortable about this very positive change to our society. Therefore, we will welcome the change and help get it instead of fearing its arrival. Our first big round of activity of informing Americans. Due to the importance of this activity of preparing for change we will continue our educational effort until we have our health care cards in our hands.

Positive outlook for America, based on many decades of experience of other free-market countries.

Universal health care provides an incredibly positive outlook for our future.

Better health outcomes: longer, healthier lives; saved lives. 

Job opportunities based on recovered jobs, new jobs ... and keeping current jobs!

Health care peace of mind: new freedoms and the elimination of many "out-of-pocket" costs, such as large medical bills.

See Additional Information at the bottom for more information.

3. Our campaign is based on actions that are proactive.

Instead of diluting the campaign reacting to events that occur in the United States that are unrelated to achieving universal health care, we focus on doing the proactive actions of educating Americans and conducting the massive events of communicating to members of the U.S. Congress and to the U.S. President Barack Obama.

Clarification. Some Health Care Patriots will appropriately spend some time on reacting to other health care related events, national and state-based. That is an unfortunate, but real, need. But the Million Letters for Health Care Campaign actvities will focus only on getting universal health care.

4. Our campaign is powerful due to its focus on citizens contacting their elected representatives.

Most members of the U.S. Congress do what is most logical to help get themselves votes in their next election: listen to and respond to their constituents, especially when their constituents take action(s) in a unified and massive way on a specific topic.

5. The world-wide movement continues.

The world-wide movement continues with the implementation of universal health care, health are for all, in more and more countries. It makes common sense for Americans and America to finally enjoy the resulting physical and financial benefits.

Phase 1 of World-Wide Implementations. First it was all high-income free-market countries (among the members of the OECD) who implemented some version of a health care for all system. The majority of those had their implementations completed by 1975. We call those implementations Phase 1.

Phase 2. The world is now a Phase 2. Many additional countries are conducting their implementations of health care for all, universal health care. The low-income free-market countries have been impementing universal health care systems, as well as others.

6. We can be motivated by leaders who have had solid experiences.

Example: the following excellent input to us (in less than one minute), by the Louisiana Republican Attorney General on March 30, 2012.

See the video.

(Can't run the video? See the transcript.)

In the above video the Louisiana Attorney General (AG) refers to subsidies to health insurance companies. He is referring to the fact that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is set up to have subsidy money flowing directly to the insurance companies. Obamacare has fancy words for it: "Reduced Cost-Sharing". You can learn about Section 1402 here. That’s good for efficiency, but Attorney General Buddy Caldwell makes it very clear that he does not like that and why he doesn't! According the associated Think Progress article, he goes on to say (after the videotaped statements) that ...

... he endorses the idea of a single-payer health care system, indicating that it’d be a “whole lot better” than Obamacare.

 

The power of the people will be prevail.

 

Our national education and communications campaign, Million Letters for Health Care, will establish the power of the people via of our knowledge among Americans and our numbers of Americans taking action. We know that realistic hope is based on the realistic actions of education and communications, which is what our campaign is all about:
Knowledge via Informed Americans.
Americans knowing what the subject is
    ... and getting their questions and concerns answered.

Numbers. Informed Americans in massive numbers (millions)
    ... invited to participate in our planned massive communication event.


 

Best universal health care in the world (will be ours)

We know that our health care for all system will be the best, based on the fact that our proposed health care for all will be the most efficient with one plan and one payer. In addition, we will have the best negotiation ability due to our size.

Belief: We know that we can accomplish the above results.

We know from the positive testimonials about health care for all from Americans who live and work in other free-market countries that they want the United States to have health care for all.

Anything Worth Having is Worth Working for.

Thank you!  .. from Bob on behalf of
myself and all the people who help with this
website and  its campaign to help get health care for all.

The transcript follows.

Here is an excerpt: "... I trust the government more than the health insurance companies. If the government wants to put forth a policy pay where they will pay for everything and you don't have to go through a health insurance company, that'd be a whole lot better."

Transcript of the video:

Reporter: "You don't think the subsidies for low-income people to (help them) buy health insurance are going to be helpful?

Attorney General: "No. No. And the worse thing you can do is to give (the subsidy money) to (a health) insurance company. (He apparently referred to section 1402 of the Affordable Care Act). I want to make my point (to be perfectly clear to people on what I am saying). All insurance companies are controlled in their particular state. And if you have a hurricane come up the east coast the first ones that's gonna leave you when they've got to pay too many claims is an insurance company. The insurance companies are the absolutely worst people to handle this kind of business. I trust the government more than the health insurance companies. If the government wants to put forth a policy where they will pay for everything and you don't have to go through (a health) insurance company, that'd be a whole lot better."

"But there are answers to this. They (those who developed the Affordable Health Care of 2010) did it too fast. And they did it while the power was a little bit of arrogance creeping into this. And power and control. And that's part of what people reacted to."

Suggestion: Read about section 1402. It uses the term "reduced cost-sharing", which is a very misleading term for subsidies. In other words, Attorney General Caldwell knows exactly what he's talking about.
