Trends in Employer Health Care Coverage, 2008–2018: Higher Costs for Workers and Their Families
There is one sentence buried in the last paragraph that describes an approach that would correct most of the deficiencies in our health care financing system: "Other members and candidates have suggested eliminating all private insurance and replacing it with a public plan like Medicare, and ending or reducing premiums and cost-sharing."

It is unfortunate that The Commonwealth Fund along with other organizations and media sources seem to have delegated this approach to a category of "aspiration" which can be dismissed because of a supposed lack of political feasibility.

Our task? Change the perception about political feasibility. Take to the streets if we have to.
