@squid Medicare for All would socialize somewhere between 1/6 and 1/5 of the US economy

just saying

@squid not completely, b/c unlike the (original) NHS doctors, nurses, & hospitals, etc. could still be private, but the funding would all be public. We should aim for further socialization in the future.

@anomaly @squid I realize this is mostly a moot point, but Medicare for All would nationalize that much of the economy, not socialize it. Socialize implies the public has control over it, which is far from the case with anything run by the US gov't.
