My socialist solution to medicine still stands

Actually it was Brad Delong's idea, he said it in jest years ago and I ran with it.

It is the militarized emergency medical corps, a branch of the armed forces tasked with emergency medical care.  The federal government runs the emergency wards in the nation and the battle field. It does no more. Legally it is akin to the post office, but branched off the military.

Our medical schools will generate MDs and techs certified for emergency care.  They have their own medical uniforms.  They do medical logistics and transport.  On the federal salary.

I don't recommend it, but if Swampcare is your thing, limit your exposure to this only. It is single payer, egalitarian and utilitarian.
