I feel like with all the Medicare-for-all talk, we are forgetting the fact that the Affordable Care Act has done a lot of good in our healthcare system.
It has given us Medicaid expansion, more rural healthcare, and millions of people health insurance who previously did not have it. It has its problems, but moderate Democrats, including Senator Sinema, have introduced small measures that are helping improve the program.
Medicare-for-all is not realistic. The actual policy has several flaws, like reduced access to our doctors and higher taxes, but most importantly it has no chance of passing in this divisive Congress. Working on real solutions for the system that is here is what our leaders should be focusing on.
