if this is successful, i will finally get a raise! some of that will go to increased taxes ( probably ), but i’ll definitely wind up with more to take home. ( the drag on small businesses of the current healthcare system is painful. )
while i agree there will be some people affected negatively ( and i’m sorry that’s you! ) i wonder if it really would be the end of private insurance? while medicare is great, not all doctors accept it. there will also continue to be a market for dental and eye care, and im sure there will be “gold plated” insurance plans with all the bells and whistles.
the uk and canada both have private insurance markets, i’m not sure why it would be any different here.
