The cost of Medicare for all would move from the private sector to the public sector. This means that overall cost of healthcare would go down because it allows government to negotiate prices of both medication and treatment. Since the government has no profit incentive unlike current health insurance plans, the lack of profit reduces the cost of running Medicare for all. The government would no longer need to reimburse private entities (i.e hospitals) for the cost the poor, disabled, and elderly. It's also difficult to calculate the current impact to the economy due to people dying early or losing wages from treatable illnesses due to lacking healthcare or avoiding healthcare costs. Government spending would certainly go up but only by the amount the private sector already spends on healthcare. The government would gain revenue from individual expenditures that are currently going into the private sector. When you take into account those things, a Medicare for all plan could potentially save Americans money on healthcare expenses and taxes.

The cost of medical treatment doesn't get more expensive just because there's a universal system, dumbass. Universal systems are expensive because everybody gets access to doctors, not just the elite few who can afford them. What you are really bitching about is the fact that you don't want your tax money to subsidise other people being healthy, and the reason you are doing that is because you are a selfish little psychopath who doesn't give two shits about anyone but himself. At least have the decency to be honest about it.

Obviously you didn't think this one out. Your position can mathematically only end in bancruptcy.

Obviously you're a transparently stupid retard who can't even spell bankruptcy.

You've got some nerve mentioning bankruptcy given the fact that the man you shill for has filed for it four times. Fuck off.
