Changing who or how it's paid for hasn't done anything to change the basic problem in medic are which some consider 'single payer" Increasing taxes hardly solves anything if we don't control costs. Simply reducing payments below prices as medicare does has only made bills go up that others are expected to pay all of.

No simplistic solution is the cure all for any problem. but, you can't deny that it would help. Look at Denmark, they have a tax of 54% and many of the nations that have single payer systems pay a lot more than we do in the US. No denying that controlling costs is also a necesity, but, now we are dealing with political and our nice and profitable "THE LOBBY SYSTEM* and how beholding most if not all Congress is to special interests.
We will never have anything that works properly, until we realize that it is in our hands to force all of them in Washington to forsake their own interests and deal with the country's problems.
I am extremely pessimistic that anything that we do in the near future will change, We need to change the culture, and that doesn't happen too quickly.
