AMAZING interview with Jill Stein on C-SPAN


  1. I'm disappointed with the medicare-for-all stance of the candidate. Medicare, while popular, is still a fee for service system. I would think that as a physician, Dr. Stein would know what a nightmare it is to have to think about how much each service costs when recommending treatment. A better system would be the Veteran's Administration Hospital system for all in which physicians are salaried and therefore can focus on the needs of the patient rather than how much the tests/treatments cost.

  2. You'll notice that she says, 'improved medicare for all' which is basically the canadian system. She uses medicare because people are familiar with it.
