Some argue that a national health plan would work for all Americans, "just look at Medicare," they say.
Medicare does work for the recipients, unless they happen to be hospitalized more than sixty days.
Then it is lights off for those not independently wealthy.
But who pays for Medicare? Doctors and hospitals receive very little for Medicare patients, causing them to overcharge others. If the government controlled prices on all health plans, like they do on Medicare, doctors might have to become vets.
