An Alternative funding source for Medicaid/Medicare

Premise: Part of the problems of healthcare may be an increase in chronically ill individuals due to age and environment per capital. Due to an increase in population in a context of an increasingly toxic environment health problems have significantly increased. Using the reductive methods of the scientific method without common sense the effect of the environment as a major contribution to chronic disease can always be debated. Common sense follows that ignorant and non-ignorant corporate greed has created a general environment where toxicity has increased directly and indirectly. If we accept that corporations have wittingly or unwittingly contributed to a toxic world over the past 50 to 60 years then we can conclude that they are directly or indirectly accountable for support the health of the citizens.
Actions: The EPA has been the policing agents for corporate polluters. However corporations have not been held accountable for contributing to an environment whose toxicity has created significant health detriments to people, animals Eco-systems and Earth.

Two actions are required. Stop contributing toxins to the environment and pay for healthcare for those that cannot afford health care.
A healthcare tax on corporations could fund Medicaid and Medicare and provide an incentive for ceasing actions that contribute to making a toxic environment.
