Yes, It is past time for Medicare for all, The basic infrastructure is already in place. There's no reason to continue trying to re-invent the wheel. Insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies drive the cost in order to make profits as large as possible. Too many people are priced out of the market and go without, it's their only option. Even before I retired it was clear that I would soon be priced out of the insurance market. Retired but not on Medicare has put me in the place where between outrageous deductibles, outrageous medication prices and outrageous insurance premiums I have had to forego some medications, procedures (MRI's, CT Scans) and doctor visits. Healthcare has become something only the wealthy can truly afford.
