Yes, this your opinion. Nurse work for insurance company facts as telenurses. There are a multitude of fields of nurse work. 

Are you under the impression that medicare and medicare associated plans don't utilize telehealth, case management, or other types of nursing services?  Why do you feel that switching from private insurance to medicare plans would result in less nurses in these fields?

This is not an opinion. Nurses work in various sectors in the healthcare industry.  Why can people not choose their healthcare?  Well, the election will decide.

It depends on where financially you are in life.

 

Not necessarily. Favoring single payer over our current expensive and failing system is more dependent upon data and evidence, IMV.

Are you for single payer, or the Medicare fir All plan that Warren has proposed?

Why are do you believe a single payor system would not allow people to "choose their healthcare".  I think you're conflating healthcare delivery with the administrative function of a payor.

They aren't really two separate things, medicare is a form of single payer.

You've never really offered what you would like to see in terms of healthcare reform, I can't tell if that's because you know what you would want but don't want to talk about it, or you just don't know what you want.  How do you believe healthcare in the US should work?

Medicare for All that Warren is proposing is not the same as single payer.

We've gone around and around on this in the past.  You're not so much interested in what I want, which isnt coming to fruition anytime soon anyway.  You're more interested in telling me where I'm wrong.

I will say I'm not for getting rid of our whole system like Warren proposes when most of it works well.

This is a good question. I am going to bet the answer is status quo.

Is this what you think? I think that Stossel is a very biased reporter and don't put much weight in his work. TBH, I didn't watch the whole thing. Obama isn't president and it seemed irrelevant.

Ebola vaccine confirmed as highly effective

GENEVA -- Final test results confirm an experimental Ebola vaccine is highly effective, a major milestone that could help prevent the spread of outbreaks like the one that killed thousands in West Africa.

Scientists have struggled to develop an Ebola vaccine over the years, and this is the first one proven to work...

...   The World Health Organization, which acknowledged shortcomings in its response to the West Africa outbreak, led the study of the vaccine, which was developed by the Canadian government and is now licensed to the U.S.-based Merck & Co. Results were published Thursday...

Single payer is NOT government run healthcare like they have on Great Britain where the National Health Service (NHS) owns the facilities and most nurses, doctors, and other healthcare providers are employed by the NHS.
