Bernie Sanders is mostly on the right track. I'm not sure
I'd open Medicare up to everyone - only to those who don't
have a good health care plan. That would be the ACA and
Medicaid. One issue though.

Medicare is rampant with Fraud. Waste. and Abuse. That
needs to be fixed. It would be painful, but once done,
the system and processes are in place. It's a very
elegant solution.
