    Health care for all (Medicare for all) would be cheaper and better. It would replace the convoluted socialist system we have now with a simple more efficient socialist system. Then we could require published prices and higher copays until we had capitalistic price and quality controls.

    What specific changes made by Medicare for All would make the cost of health care cheaper AND better?

    Why specifically would make health care administered by the federal government MORE efficient.

    We have the power to require published prices and higher co-pays now. Why would need to change our entire health insurance delivery system to make these simple changes?

    How specifically would Government run health lead to capitalistic price and quality controls.

    Because economic history is chock-full of examples where monopolies deliver superior products at greatly reduced prices!

    Oh, wait......

    Sure in some areas insurance pays or ER pays or companies, state govt pays so it would hard to make sweeping changes with medicare for all you could make sweeping changs and quickly to establish a few national prices and copays.
