Medicare for All: A Bargain at $33 Trillion

The United States now spends twice as much on health care as the average of all the other industrial countries. Yet we rank 28th in life expectancy – right down there with Turkey. We rank 55th in infant mortality – just between Gibraltar and Serbia. With Medicare for All we can bring down costs, pay less, and live healthier lives.
