Update: Bernie's $1.3 trillion annual cost for single payer understates reality by about $400 billion per year. And his revenues to pay for it are, sadly, laughable. So, oh promoters of single payer, where would you get $1.7 trillion in annual revenue to pay for your program?

Economic reality required. reference to actual US tax revenues useful. Secondary economic effects need to be included. ["Dynamic scoring" required.]

And how much of this would your family be paying?
Update 2: some hours later. zero useful responses. are we really this economically illiterate?
Update 3: over 8 hours later -- notned in another thread suggest taxing alcohol and smokes much more. since they're part of the problem [delayed need for medical care after using them], this is part of the solution. zero points for anyone else, so far
