totally derail people. We are so screwed with this you're-on-your-own, dog-eat-dog capitalism. If we just had single-payer healthcare a lot of stress would be relieved.

Dems actually should start stressing how even corps and medium and small businesses would benefit from single-payer as they wouldn't have to contribute to employees' healthcare thus saving big bucks on admin. costs and of course their products would become more competitive as those costs would not be factored into their price. It was reported a few years back that auto companies would save $1500 per vehicle if they didn't have to provide healthcare to workers.

Sure taxes will go up but that cost woulld be offset by all the other benefits—no premium payments, no healthcare payroll deductions, no co-pays, no out-of-pocket costs before employer-funrnised healthcare kicks in when you need to use it.
