Since this is one of Bernie Sanders' proposals but even long before (in the 90s, Bill and Hillary Clinton had made a strong push for it), the idea of a "Medicare for all" has been floating around for quite some time in American politics, I was wondering if this will ever come into fruition, either in the near future or further down the line. So far, I haven't heard of other politicians or public figures in this current time besides Bernie Sanders come out with strong support for single-payer. Most want to "work within the current system", as in the way Obamacare did (When I first lived in the US as a college student some years ago, I got to see Obama's election, and I excitedly but naively believed that soon, perhaps even in a few years, the healthcare system would be just as it was "back home", not realizing what single-payer was compared to Obamacare and the complexity of it all and thinking that I just get a card that allows me to access care anytime anyplace, not realizing it doesn't work at some different clinic, or in the next town over). However, I read that, depending on how you word things on surveys, explaining what it is, the majority of Americans actually want the single-payer system. Apparently Vermont had at one point attempted it on a state level (there were plans to test it out on other states if it would have succeeded, I guess the way Canada did it provincially) but it didn't work out. What do you think? Is single-payer still a probable direction the US system could go towards? I certainly hope so.
