If you could reform healthcare to include all Americans, what do you think it would take for the Government to accept it? Would it cost us billions every year? How would you go about reforming health care for the better?

I have family in the UK and the medical system is far from perfect. They have free healthcare for everyone but their doctors do not earn nearly as much and many are overworked. My family has told me stories of them having to wait for weeks, sometimes months just to get in to see a doctor. The workaround to this is going private but you pay out of pocket and there is no insurance system there. I think if we are going to do free healthcare it should be for children under the age of 14 and those with disabilities which will prevent them from working (disabilities they were born with). There are state programs that offer government-funded healthcare already. I had it myself. I paid $15 for an ER visit, $10 for a specialist appointment, and $5 for a standard doctor. Medication was capped at $15 as well. This is because I had no income coming in. There are options for people out there, I think many of them get lied to about them or don’t know they exist.
