The entire Americas from the top of Canada down to the bottom of Argentina should have open borders

Just like Eurozone, people, business, and capital should move freely throughout the Americas. Just like someone born in Virginia and live and work in Texas, we should be able to be born any where in the Americas and live and work any where else in the Americas.

Some basic questions about Bernie's Single Payer plan

1. How would doctors, hospitals, pharmaceuticals be compensated and who determines their level of compensation?

2. What procedures would be covered? Would every procedure currently covered by existing health insurance companies be covered by Single Payer?

3. What happens if doctors don't take Single Payer patients only those with private insurance? What does that mean for people who currently have relationships with these doctors but can no longer see them?

5. If people opt out of being in Single Payer and are willing to pay for private health insurance, are they exempt from the payroll tax? If they're not, why not?

Millions of Americans have health care plans that they like. For example, there are unionized workers who have good healthcare plans. These Americans have doctors and specialists available on their current plans. If these same doctors and specialists refuse to take patients from a Single payer plan just from private health insurance plans, how does Bernie's plan adjust for that?

Hillary's healthcare plan is based on maintaining the ACA which allows people to keep their current plan. She wants to build on it and improve it:
