This is bizarre. It's like people can't do math.

OK, follow along.

The US now spends $2.353 Trillion on health care.
If we adopted the Canadian System, it would be $1.186 Trillion

Saving the US $1.167 Trillion and we would have every single person in the US covered.

It costs less! As in the opposite of more!

Why is that so hard to understand?

How much is that Medicare shortfall?
