Medicare has the lowest overhead of any health delivery system in the country and they don't charge extra to make a profit either.

Medicare For All would save the country $2 trillion over 10 years. Under the current privatized system, we are projected to spend $34T over the next 10 years, while the cost of MFA is projected at $32T.

Medicare For All makes a lot of sense. It is not a new program, it's an expansion of a 50-year old program that's been very successful and popular.
Read the legislation. It is clear all employer/union plans go. Read Section 107.
