Sorry to disappoint you, but Medicare for all mandates the elimination of private insurance and puts everyone on the gov't plan (except for the elites in power that will have access to care the rest of us won't).

30k sounds a little high. I was paying almost 24k per year for my wife and I. so we switched plans, and now it's down to about 18k. Still a good PPO plan.

I'm a little sad that you would only distribute savings to your "Partners". When my business gets a windfall, I increase bonuses to everyone. I guess that is the compassionate conservative in me.

FYI I also pay for their Cadillac PPO health plan, and contribute the max to their simple IRA. That's just what us dumb, lowly construction types do I guess.

Wrong. If a single-payer healthcare Act is passed that models our existing Medicare system, private insurance jobs will thrive.

It's a result of critical thinking, something that progressives like yourself, seem to avoid.

Please explain as a Single Payer model is a model where the single payer is the Government. That leaves no room for any other entity to exist in that model.

It does if that entity donates to the DNC. Can you imagine how PP will prosper under government healthcare?
