Ronald Mathis: Medicare for all

Thanks to Alex Klistoff for his excellent article on "Take time to learn about 'Medicare for all'" printed in The Union.

Dr. Klistoff clearly has a good understanding of the potential benefits and significant impediments for a universal health care system. The strong resistance to such a system naturally comes from the competing health insurance firms that would be affected. Their power to influence policy against a single system can be correlated directly to their willingness to support political candidates through contributions.

This is a system that will be extremely difficult to break.
