    No need to cut benefits. Allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, and give all Americans the option of buying into Medicare (Medicare for All). Plus allow the cost saving measures of the Affordable Care Act to take effect (e.g., paying providers for outcomes), and such reforms will be significant.

    A friendly reminder that, as a portion of GDP, health insurance is about twice as costly in the U.S. as other industrialized countries. So, our problems with Medicare are a symptom, not a cause. We need to go focus on the cause.
