I watched five more videos. It seems like every time that someone gives the reason that American healthcare is so expensive they focus on one thing. Where can I get an unpaid intern and say "Watch videos about why American medicine is so expensive and make a list of reasons?"

They would probably come up with dozens of reasons.

As usual, the comments for each of those videos were cancer, but one gem was:
"Imagine every local grocer refusing to reveal the price of the bread unless you are done eating that bread. Welcome to US healthcare system."

So, yes, that is one problem, as you mentioned, you cannot research your care. When I was aging out of Dad's health insurance I went for a checkup. I went to a clinic in my system, but they sent my results to a lab that was not covered, and I was just lucky that that I did not see a doctor out of my network.

Prager has a video saying that we already have single-payer healthcare, the VA, and he spent a few minutes detailing how bad it is.

I do not hear great things about Medicare or Medicaid, either.

Can we just fix one of those and then expand or copy it?
