  •  I'd imagine that _some_ are worse off (0+ / 0-)

    It makes sense to me that, say, a single, healthy, 27 year old guy might be, currently, paying a pretty low rate -- and then would have to pay more under single payer.

    But, as noted above, that's a feature, not a bug.  When that 27 year old reaches the age of 67, he'll be paying less than his cost, and the new 27 year olds will be paying more.

    That's just leveling the field, so that everyone can afford it, and pay, and benefit from it equally during their lifetimes.
