Healthcare for All — It’s the Fiscally Responsible Solution

Expanding the nation’s Medicare program to cover people of all ages would
save the government billions of dollars, according to a new study released
Wednesday.

The study found that a single-payer health care system based on the
principles of legislation by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.), the
Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, would save the federal
government about $592 billion in one year.

That’s more than enough to pay for comprehensive benefits for all
Americans at a lower cost to the public, according to Physicians for a
National Health Program, which circulated the study. The extra money would
go to paying down the national debt.
