That's false. The costs would go up.
All I'm reading in this thread is about higher cost for the government. Let's assume for a moment the US is not able to have a long term plan for UHC that's cheaper than the current system. So it's gonna be a bit more expensive. Wouldn't it be alright to increase the cost of a system if that means overall higher coverage?
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
