I cannot imagine that with all of those drivers on cost, the out of pocket would be higher. I am suggesting a SINGLE tax on all healthcare, to replace the death of a thousand cuts we have now. Overall it would end up much, much less.
"They now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry." - Thomas Jefferson, 1826
