Study in The Lancet on Medicare For All

Some facts to use in our narrative of a caring, compassionate healthcare system for all. The study found that "Medicare for All will save Americans $450 billion and prevent 68,000 unnecessary deaths each and every year. [...] Doctors and hospitals would see large savings in cost and time from streamlining our bloated and inefficient administrative and billing system, allowing doctors to spend more time with patients."

"Last month, another medical journal found that 19 out of 22 studies done over the past 30 years concluded that moving to a Medicare for All, single-payer health care system would cost less than our current health care system in the first year, and all of the studies showed that it would cost less within a decade of implementation."
