    Medicare for All vs. All the Healthcare That Each Can Afford

    This paper from the National Nurses Union examines the U.S. healthcare system as it is currently, as it would be under the American Health Care Act, and how it could be under a Medicare for all single payer healthcare system.

    This paper from the National Nurses Union examines the U.S. healthcare system as it is currently, as it would be under the American Health Care Act, and how it could be under a Medicare for all single payer healthcare system.

    "A Medicare-for-all health plan would provide comprehensive healthcare benefits for all medically appropriate care without regard to income, employment, or health status." In comparison, the American Health Care Act is market-driven and is "leaving increasingly more people at the mercy of the market."

    The paper concludes that "Now is the time to take on our market-driven system and fight for an improved and expanded Medicare for all."
