Candidate Review - Health Care - Mike Gravel

Mike Gravel proposes eliminating the Income Tax and replacing it with a national Sales tax. We'll get back to that in due course, but since he mentions it in his very very short section on National Health Care, I thought I would explain what he is talking about.
Senator Gravel advocates a universal healthcare system that provides equal medical services to all citizens, paid for by a retail sales tax (a portion of the Progressive Fair tax). Citizens would pay nothing for health benefits.
Sounds nice doesn't it? So Mike Gravel would eliminate the IRS and the Medical Insurance Industry at one fell swoop, eh? That's gonna be one hell of a sales tax, I'd guess.
