Synthetic single payer

Here's a healthcare reform bill that fits on a postcard:

The Medicare-for-all Biosimilar Act of 2017

Title 1: Uniform Payment Rate
     Sect. 101. All payers for healthcare services shall pay providers at a rate equal to 120% of current Medicare payment rates. Price schedule will be maintained and updated by CMS, with existing alternative payment programs maintained at the 120% payment ratio. Medicare Advantage benchmarks will be adjusted accordingly.

Title II: Healthcare Budget
     Sect. 201. The Medicare tax will be increased to a level sufficient to fund the government's increased payments in Medicare and Medicaid.
