    It seems there is just this natural tendency in this country to make everything so damn and unnecessarily complicated.  We have a national healthcare system already in place, Medicare (and Medicaid), just get rid of the age (and income) stipulations and everyone is covered.  Maybe it's not so simple, but I'm skeptical that's it's so complicated.

      known as insurance companies and there were a slew of lobbyists making sure that didn't happen. Unfortunately. Maybe somewhere down the line when this doesn't contain costs as effectively as it should congress will revisit medicare for all as the solution.
