Yes. I watched that shite show last night as well.
What Klein called discrimination is actually just underwriting. Insurance was not meant to be fair, it's a risk sharing mechanism based on pooling of resources and risk assessment (aka underwriting).

It doesn't matter if the government runs it or not (which they certainly would in a single payer system). If there is no competition is going to be absolute shite.
