How Long?

My gentle snowflakes, I first started screaming about Medicare for All in June 2009, linking to an article about how to implement it in a reasonable fashion. It seemed then, to me, to be the only fiscally sustainable answer.

Then, in December of that year, I actually began to link to the original bill calling for Medicare for All.

Now, a real economist (Gerald Friedman, University of Massachusetts-Amherst) has put pencil to paper--well, probably keystrokes into a spreadsheet template. (As an aside, I really hope some vocabularist is devising words & phrases to describe current activities as well as some of the old words & phrases.)

His conclusions? It's cheaper!
