In an era where Medicare-for-All is now overwhelmingly popular amongst the general populace, a new study shows that the US would see significant savings from implementing such a system, in addition to improving the economy and well-being/mental health.

"Medicare for All promises a system that is fairer, more efficient, and vastly less expensive than America's bloated, monopolized, over-priced and under-performing private health insurance system," Sachs said. "America spends far more on healthcare and gets far less for its money than any other high-income country."
good use of meaningless words

This is great news! A majority of Americans want this. A healthy populace is a more productive one.

I think this line makes it even more attractive <emphasis added>:

"...the cumulative savings for the first decade operating under Medicare for All would be $5.1 trillion, equal to 2.1 percent of cumulative GDP, without accounting for broader macroeconomic benefits such as increased productivity, greater income equality, and net job creation through lower operating costs for small- and medium-sized businesses..."

Most perplexing thing about conservatives is that they would prefer the explosion of freely provided Medicaid and SSDI for the drug addicted and non-working Americans .

Most perplexing thing about big government supporters is that they would prefer the making things up and reacting to symptoms instead of truthfully trying to address the cause of our problems.

Which is....a lack of affordable healthcare or health insurance. Many have found they have no choice but to resort to Medicaid of SSDI in order to provided medical care for their family.

The site in the original post is a communist propaganda/misinformation hive. And they need your donations to survive. The Sanders foundation won't pony up. LOL.

sure would be nice to spend time and money truly attempting to get at the truth, rather than partisans on each side being unable to make a point without jabbing at the other.

just the article linked, the author/proponent took 16 whole words before calling it "uniquely inefficient and immoral".
