1. Mandate universal coverage, i.e. require insurance companies to essentially cover anyone who applies and if they can’t afford it, then the states will have to pay it for them. Employers will have to offer insurance to their employees.
2. Nationalize or centralize the now bankrupted health insurance companies (from Step 1) and “bail them out” (take them over like GM) and basically make the government the single payer for all healthcare in the US.
3. Drastically reduce the fees that will be paid for various services (similar to Medicaid and Medicare) so that most doctors and hospitals are utterly dependent on the government for additional funding.
Done! Cook for 25 minutes at 300 degrees and you’ll have a wonderful healthcare omelet that serves everyone but feeds nobody!
