    Bush 43 made student loans and medical except from bankruptcy. You can still file for bankruptcy but will still fully owe these debts.
    Obamacare fixed the pre-existing clause but this is under attack.
    With our current tax system, I don't think we can afford Medicare for all but it's possible.
    I saw in an interview, a British doctor was asked what was the difference between him and an American doctor. He replied, "British doctors live in $1m homes, American doctors live in $2m homes". Also, the interviewer made a point that of all countries with national healthcare, not one has ever tried to repeal it.

    I don't know much at all about taxes, but compared to other industrialized countries we spend twice as much per capita on medical and get worse results (tens of millions uninsured, falling life expectancies, higher drug prices, etc.). We are richer than these other countries too, so … ???

    of all countries with national healthcare, not one has ever tried to repeal it. : good point.
