I am so sick of hearing about "medicare for all". Really. It too complicated and too expensive for the end user.

You obviously don't understand Bernie's Medicare-for-All proposal. Everything's covered (except cosmetic plastic surgery) and there's no premiums, deductibles, or co-pays. Taxes pay for all of it, just like most other industrialized countries.

The price gouging alone in the current US for-profit system amounts to an $8,000 per year stealth tax on every American family.

The U.S. health care system is the most expensive in the world, and its cost far surpasses that of other high-income nations, according to a 2019 report from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. America spends about $1 trillion more than Switzerland, the second-most expensive system — meaning U.S. households spend roughly $8,000 more than their Swiss counterparts.

And the Swiss pay about 30% more than the French for the same high quality health care because they left the for-profit insurers in charge.
