    So instead, to me it's about pursuing a system that is actually achievable in the current American context.

    But in addition it's about achieving universal health care. That's more important than whether it's single payer, which is an option.

    I think you're right to point out that the money savings on the admin side is less than it appears. But single payer as a viable option needs to be looked at more long term (it's not happening politically short term).

    I am neither wedded nor dismissive of single payer and would like all the options on the table. But UHC is the more important goal, as you've noted.
