I f we can remove some of the costs associated with products that we trade globally, Medicare for all could make us more competitive with the rest of the world. Medicare costs would be absorbed through some kind of taxation, but as long as we still have the so-called free trade, we will always be more expensive if we do not remove the outrageous costs of present day insurance from the costs of goods.

As it expands out from its online bookstore roots, Amazon has approached virtual monopoly status - and regular retailers are paying the price.
