How Does It Affect Us?
people died between 2005 and 2010
2012 Families USA study shows that more than 130,000 Americans died between 2005 and 2010 because of their lack of health insurance. The number of deaths due to a lack of coverage averaged three per hour and that the issue plagued every state. Other studies have shown those statistics to be high or low, but all studies agree: In America the uninsured are more likely to die than those with insurance.
With Medicare for All
billion dollars could be saved
Under the single-payer system created by HR 676 [the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, introduced by Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich.], the U.S. could save over $494 billion annually by slashing the administrative waste associated with the private insurance industry ($375 billion) and reducing pharmaceutical prices to European levels ($119 billion).
