Pretty darn long. As we all know, really expensive. Again, long read if anyone is interested in this idea.

Thanks for posting this link.

Healthcare is expensive. Haven’t had a chance to read all of it yet, but I’m guessing it doesn't address
what the country already is spending for subpar outcomes as compared to the rest of the industrialized world.

Isn’t what we should be looking for what this option would cost compared to what we’re spending now.

I’ll read tonight.

Thanks again for posting.

I heard on the radio this morning that a left-leaning organization (can't remember the name) did a recent study on how much medicare for all would cost. They estimated 57 trillion over 10 years. So in essence, medicare for all is unattainable.

This is the most recent piece.
Can you spell IMPOSSIBLE? As I understand you will not have private insurance. So if you like your employee based insurance it is gone. If you like your paycheck it sounds as if that will also be gone. Again, the numbers are estimates and when have the estimates ever been realistic...
