Issue every citizen a MediCard that entitles them to whatever health care they need. Then raise taxes to pay for it. It'd cost half as much as the current system.


Exactly.

Why must it be a for-profit system?

Why not have it like, say, the police department, where taxes are such that this necessary service gets paid for.
