Medicare for all will not save money. If you think health care costs are high now, just wait until it is free! There will be massive over-utilization until rationing kicks in – then there will be long waits, denial of care, and denied services. Everyone should not be forced into a single government-run plan. The U.S. is should be proud of not following the forced socialist plans of other countries. We absolutely do have problems with our health care system – but much of that is due to bad government policies and lack of real free-market competition. Government granted monopolies, in the form of patents, have been abused.
