We have multiple single-payer systems here, too.

What we have learned is that private insurance alone is untenable. To cover more people, we must move toward single-payer models. It's immatetial to me, though, just exactly what universal coverage would look like. If the rich want to keep a few doctors on retainer, fine...but as with school systems, they need to be taxed to support the systems that will keep the rest of us healthy.

People are looking for that sound bite, and rather obsessively.

Significant differences existed between the campaigns, but Trump and a unity platform are making them look less significant.

Sanders promised ling ago to work to elect the Democratic nominee, and has already said he'll endorse. I think we can all read between the lines.
