    If you want to have universal care, then advocate for universal care. I am fine with UHC. M4A--no damn way.
    Screw universal health care, it's a sucker's bet.

    I don't dismiss the idea based on past or present failures. Money is rather meaningless anyway. It becomes a matter of willingness. No more, no less.

    • It minimizes risk, combining the whole US population into one large pool of over 300 million people.

    • It eliminates private insurance. Private insurance eats up 30% of every dollar in profits, marketing and administration. Medicare operates on less than 5% overhead.
    ( This being said I BELIEVE Consumers should make this choice on their own)

    • It simplifies health care. One program will cover all health issues for everyone.

    • It guarantees quality care for all. No one can be denied care or forced to use an emergency room because s/he has no doctor or coverage.

    ( I SAY if we want to reduce the cost of local, state and federal governments this is one item that could help dramatically)
    Provide 3 choices: Put this to a vote thus allowing patriotic citizens decide!

    === Retain ObamaCare insurance for those who are pleased with it or apprehensive to change.

    === Self financed health care allows the fiscally fit to opt out. Open this door.

    === Provide the opportunity of Single Payer Medicare for ALL = excellent coverage to many millions upon millions more.
    OPEN this door. This coverage is no more free than ObamaCare however it does cost CONSIDERABLY less.
