I enjoyed your rant, jgw, but will pick at this minor point because this is the direction I think we're headed on healthcare.
Medicare For All
I am against any healthcare by gov unless its completely paid for by taxes
is what you're gonna get. You can call your Medicare premiums "taxes" if you want and coverage isn't exactly all inclusive without supplemental plans. Our government isn't very good at designing things from the ground up but it might be able to build on an established and popular program like Medicare.
