UHC (medicare for all) is everyone sharing the cost burden by raising taxes a little and saving the costs of premiums, deductibles, copays, and mandated penalties by a lot. I see that as a win/win for everyone.
Also called Medicare for All by some folks.
Anyone who has worked much can confirm that Medicare is not free.
Nearly every working stiff for the last half century has been paying on Medicare for most of their working life.

The US pays more than any civilized country for healthcare, and we have more citizens doing without adequate health care than any civilized country.

Give i whatever name we like, we need to fix healthcare.
