It's not right to deny doom people to an avoidable death just for profits moral wise but corporate wise, they are not something those corporations want to deal with, with this administration I feel like eventually it's gonna come up in court someday and they will win the right to flat out refuse to cover anyone who has a pre existing condition or could gain one in their life, you know things that require expensive medication to take, life long hospital appointments and if needed, surgeries. That kinda of stuff.

Yes of course.

Yes. If everybody was covered and used that for regular checkups there would be a decline of high risk people as problematic developments would be caught earlier.

Ideally not, but until we have a proper universal healthcare system its only way to do things.

Punitive taxes will prevent people from polluting, eating too much sugar, using alcohol and tobacco, and then those taxes can be used for healthcare for all. A carbon tax on corporations will prevent pollution, which puts the entire world population at risk for disease.

Also, a lot of charities are using money inappropriately and not helping people. You could setup a government charity that counts for tax writeoffs, lower the tax writeoffs for other charities, and all that money goes into healthcare for all.

Then, lastly, you could set up a premium program where wealthy people can get a deal on healthcare if they invest a lot of money all at once in their healthcare. People will essentially be punished for not managing their money well.

These three combined actions would make medicare for all very cheap and insurance companies covering high risk people a null initiative. Government competition with private charities will make private charities compete harder to actually help people, lowering private charity corruption.

I have many more ideas but I hope this helps someone.
Most capitalists don't know that you can't become rich without doing the opposite of Jesus Christ's golden rule. Maybe that's why rich folk don't go to heaven.

They can either cover them or they can watch as we go full government funded healthcare and they go out of business.

If we're not going to do single payer then yes they should. There's no good reason why the wealthiest nation in the world shouldn't be able to guarantee health coverage for all of our citizens.

No they are a private company, you can't force them to allow people to use their platform if they don't want to.
