Pursue single-payer, but do it right
Much has been said lately about single-payer health insurance. I am lucky enough to be retired and a recipient of Medicare. I have paid into this program since its inception, so I have covered my participation. I continue to pay with SSA charges and fees for my Advantage plan and co-pays. The coverage is fine and I would think that this might be an acceptable solution for those without health insurance, but not for free. Receiving single-payer health insurance should include the cost of providing it. It should also include our government negotiating prescription drugs.
