In the meantime, freeing healthcare from the clutches of predatory insurance companies is what all Democrats should be thinking about.
The cost problem in American health care isn’t about insurance companies. It’s about the wages that doctors and nurses get.
Taxes would rise as healthcare costs are shifted over to the government. This is a trade-off other industrialized countries are willing to make – they also pay their doctors less – but one Americans aren’t used to.
That’s the problem that needs to be solved and it really isn’t obvious that having the Feds paying for everything is going to solve it.
