Sam Metz, MD, retired anesthesiologist from Portland, Oregon, gives his "3 Questions, 9 Answers" talk about how to meet the listener at her/his level of understanding about our health care system. He then adds the evidence in a step-wise fashion to move the listener toward the conclusion that universal improved Medicare for All or another form of single payer health care is the best solution to our dysfunctional health care system.

Tax payers are getting "ripped off" by our health care system with its multiple risk pools. The tax-payer pays for all the high risk pools: all people (Medicare), poor people (with more illness because of social determinants), veterans (with higher health care needs because of service related disabilities and other adverse social determinants), Indian health service (also with higher health care needs). Then the taxpayer subsidizes insurance companies to handle finances for healthcare for the healthiest segment of the population. Because business expense for employee health care benefits are tax deductible there is a large loss of revenue to the federal government. To make matters worse providers face and overhead of $86,000 per physician justify battles with insurance industry. The taxpayer is getting ripped off.
