Should the US Switch to a Medicare-for-All Healthcare System?
Medicare-for-All is a proposal to create a government-run single-payer healthcare system paid for by taxpayers. According to the Congressional Budget Office, "In a typical single-payer system, people enroll in a health plan operated by the government... Private insurance, if allowed, generally plays a relatively small role and supplements the coverage provided under the public plan." For related information, visit healthcare.procon.org.
