but yeah I think bernies plan is better. we just all pay a tax and skip copays, premium, deductibles, and balance we pay now.
I'd like to know what, in the name of Zeus's butthole, entitles the government to any luxury tax from anybody?

Right, surrender your private insurance that gives you ready access to state of the art medical care for an inferior level of care rationed by Federal bureaucrats. There are virtually no providers that just take Medicare as total payment. Yet, Medicare's inadequate payments are exactly what Bernie's cost model is built on.

You can bet that the elites like Bernie with his multimillion dollar net worth and 3 houses aren't going to wait in line for third world quality medical care like you'll have to. But hey, no premiums, no copays, no out of pocket costs for the privilege of waiting in line for inferior care delivered by overworked and indifferent providers.

What private insurance does best and government does worst is offer choices.

I'll pass on the pregnancy and family insurance. Skip the skydiving and auto racing portion. Smokers insurers insurance I don't need. I can keep my doctor.

I'm not all that interested in paying for yours either.

there are very few if any private companies that have taken over govt jobs that do them as well or cheaply.

Medicare for all would mean she waits and waits for a shot at cut rate medical care. As President Obama without a scrap of medical training, you could be better off taking pills for the pain, instead of the surgery.

This is why we have a republic instead of a democracy. When the government steals from A to give to B, B likes it.

In this case it's even worse, Elizabeth Warren among others can't show a realistic means of paying for Medicare for all but we can be certain that 160 million of us will lose our medical insurance. But don't worry, the Federal government will take good care of you just like they did with the promise of allowing you to keep your doctor and your insurance under Obamacare.

Is that something like taxing relative to the prosperity of the owner of the luxury? I smell a stinking monarchy trying to begin an inception into America, if there are people out there okay with that horse crap. Remember the British window tax? Heck, remember the Stamp Act?
