How will we pay for it? Reduce the waste in the military budget. Repeal the tax cuts for the billionaires and corporations. Stop giving subsidies to oil and gas and farming so they can pay their own way. Force pharmaceutical companies and corporate healthcare organizations to pay lower, more consistent rates across the board. Put a cap on CEO pay for any health-related industry that considers itself a "nonprofit" so that they don't have to charge so much. Reform the legal system so that malpractice doesn't drive up rates. Lots of ways to pay for it, most of which are fiscally conservative. If you're complaining about how expensive it is, YOU'RE THE PROBLEM.
