What's wrong with this idea? Expand medicare, medicaid and the VA system to cover everyone with a SSN. Completely take the burden off of business and individuals for health insurance. The business get to keep and reinvest the money they had been spendng on employee health insurance. The employee get to keep their contributions to insurance. The uninsured finally get insurance. The government gets to tax all the new money that was previously in the insurance tax shelter. This can go to offsetting the increased cost. Everyone who has insurance through their job would get a nice raise from not having to pay for insurance anymore. the business get relieved of an ever increasing burden and can invest that saved money back into their business. Everybody wins...except the private insurance sector. Why isn't this on the table? What am I mssing? Is this feasible?
