of course, we should. But single payer is not medicare-for-all. But the issue is much simpler than that can-o-worms. It's like the people who blame the bad politicians rather than the mirror forgetting they voted them into office. Sometimes you want to say "Hello?" Okay, often! Health care...if we would all start eating right, cut out the known things in our diet/drink that are "not good" along with even light exercise 80%+ of this health care fuss wouldn't be needed. But, since most of us don't, then ... our choice...choose wisely. But, don't blame anyone else...the solution is always in the mirror!
