DETROIT, MI—In reality, “Healthcare for All” is not a reform of “Healthcare for Some.” It is a strategy to establish a healthcare system to meet the healthcare needs of everyone in this country.
“Medicare For All” is a tactic within that strategy. “Medicare For All” is a three-legged tactic that includes “Everyone In, Nobody Out Healthcare, Non-Profit Healthcare” and “Single Payer Healthcare.”
“Medicare For All” is a tactic to confront the private for profit healthcare system in this country. That system can no longer cope with the healthcare crisis brought on by the change in how we produce things. We are moving from a labor-based system of production to a robotic-based system of production. That means, we can produce more with little or no labor involved. It also means that we can have our human needs met with little or no labor involved.
