'Why not start with Medicare?'
about the alleged benefits of a single-payer health care system. Why is there 30 percent waste in Medicare? Why isn't the government doing something about it now? Why would a future 'single-payer' system work better at containing costs when a current single-payer system has failed at containing costs? ... Of course what some are really after is a future nationalization of the health care system -- as if it's a magic wand that would immediately reduce price pressures via brute government force.
