1. This video is about Affordable Healthcare for All Californians: Medicare For All. A universal single payer system is the most cost effective way to ensure that everyone has healthcare regardless of economic status, employment status, age, race, immigration status, gender, etc. As proponent of Healthcare
    Justice, Military Veteran, World Traveler and Filmmaker, I hope to see California enact a Healthcare System that covers everyone in California from cradle to grave without co-pays, deductibles, lifetime caps or any exclusions. This can be achieved by creating a payroll tax (like Medicare) and eliminating insurance companies from the Healthcare System. In the military, I received full healthcare without exclusions. As a veteran, I have received full healthcare without exclusions. After an accident on holiday in France, I received full healthcare at the emergency room (surgery, Xray, MRI) and a house call by a doctor; as a non-citizen of France, the total cost to me was same as a citizen of France - less than $200.
    While working in Silicon Valley as a Scientist & Laboratory Manager and setting up a business, one finds the most time-consuming, stressful, and out-of-control cost to business is healthcare. Employees are distracted and stressed-out by healthcare issues, such as the cost to see a doctor or other healthcare provider, whether or not healthcare providers are in the network, annual plan changes that may exclude current healthcare providers. Employers spend money and time every year trying to determine which of the 5,000 or so health insurance plans are affordable.
    How about reconstructing the healthcare system in California to make it provide healthcare to everyone and be simple to access and pay for?
