I think you guys are reading way to much into my exposition there.

Bottom line - will the money that I'm saving by not paying for a high monthly premium be equally paid in more taxes to cover single-payer?

That's basically what I'm worried about.

Because once we fire the single-payer bullet, there's no getting it back in the barrel.

Fun facts going by 2016 numbers:

UK
Spending/capita: 4,192
Life Expectancy: 81.60

Canada
Spending/capita: 4,753
Life Expectancy: 82.14

Spain
Spending/capita: 3,248
Life Expectancy: 83.38

US
Spending/capita: 9,892
Life Expectancy: 78.74

We spend 2-3x the amount of these countries on healthcare and our lifespan is ~3-5 years shorter. The only way you would pay more is if your employer rips you off and doesn't compensate you for the difference they are saving, and that is an entirely different issue that should be tackled as well.
