    And why would it be a massive bureaucracy?

    It could just be a team reviewing the standards set locally (all through paperwork), and checking to see that they met federal and state standards.
    Not intricate standards, just basic ones, like, for example:
    • Everyone must be covered.
    • Pre-existing conditions must be covered.
    Fair enough, I envisioned something bigger than that. But I still see no need for a middle man IMO.

    I'd add all emergency treatment covered.
    No patented treatments covered.
    Allow the states healthcare to bargin on volume.

    Just because I want a national health care policy so that everyone can take advantage of it doesn't mean I don't think we're the best (for those who can afford it).
    No one here wants UHC, and it hasn't shown to be scaleable at our population size, nor with our demographic diversity.

    US 350 Million.
    EU 500+ Million.

    EU has 27 different native nationalities, with hundreds of native ethnic differences.
