Has Covid-19 proved the fallacy of having healthcare connected to employment?

Get laid off and no healthcare

    Absolutely.  The current pandemic situation demonstrates the need for Medicare-for-all.  No American should be in fear of not having healthcare coverage because of job loss.  

    This is of course highlighted by a pandemic situation where the possibility of a long hospitalization looms, while many people face the loss of healthcare benefits due to the loss of employment because of  the pandemic.

    If you had a job or insurance you'd know that people can continue their insurance for up to a year under plans like Cobra . That provides plenty of time to find another job or to apply for Medicaid .

    I always find it amusing when you Lefties talk about things you know nothing about ,,,,, like employment , filing taxes or church .

    It's not a fallacy. If you are employed, you have a better chance of having health insurance, which makes healthcare more affordable.  High level healthcare is connected to employment.

    Sure shows why it's a problem! States are overwhelmed with people getting sick and needing very expensive ICU/ventilator/ECMO care for weeks (and sometimes months) and having NO INSURANCE. Some red states are even looking into finally taking up the Medicaid expansion they fought tooth and nail to stop. The cost to our government for all the expenses of these sick people will cost taxpayers for decades to come.

    Conservatives created that system. They want you tied to a job/company just for the health care, even if you hate your job.
