Here's the straight skinny on Medicare for All The Hightower Lowdown

"How about Lawmaker-Care for the Rest of Us?
Why, you might ask, does Congress hem and haw about restructuring a profiteering corporate healthcare system that is fundamentally corrupt, exorbitantly overpriced, and disastrously unable to meet our people’s health needs? Even though a majority all across the political spectrum has been telling lawmakers in polls, emails, and town hall meetings that fixing America’s broken care system is an urgent priority, lawmakers do nothing … and the problems grow more severe."

"Our country spends the most (more than $10,000 per year, per person) on a system that often delivers the least. (US life expectancy has fallen to the bottom among wealthy nations.)

Most shamefully, roughly a third of the $3.5 trillion we pay into the US system each year is sucked up by corporate paper shuffling, advertising, executive pay and perks, expensive headquarters, and other non-care charges. Canada runs its full-coverage programs with less than half (12%) those administrative expenses."
