We do have a good start on socialized medicine now. With all these delays, and the low sign-up rates, there's no way the ins. cos. will collect enough in premiums to pay the claims. The taxpayers are on the hook to pay for most of the medical bills. $1.5T is most likely way under the real cost to taxpayers.
The only thing that might help that is that the deductibles are so high on most of the policies that many people might just not go for medical attention because they can't afford to go.

Medical care and medical insurance are two different subjects. You can have one without the other, and it looks like we opted for the latter instead of the former.
