A columnist from Maryland arguing that Medicare-for-All is both politically realistic and affordable at the state level cites a report by the Political Economy Research Institute at UMass Amherst that a similar program, if adopted in California, would lead to an 8-percent drop in health care costs. The writer says in a system where the government pays for health care, the main incentive would be to save money, not to make money for insurance companies, hospitals and drug companies.
