U.S. public expenditure on health care - 49% of $11,916 per person ($5839 per capita) is just a little more than Canada's total outlay of $5782 per capita. So while the short term financing of a single payer system is difficult to assess, in the longer term I tend to agree with Harris - that it wouldn't require a middle class tax increase.
I believe the number you quoted assumes Americans are still paying out of pocket.

If private insurance is eliminated and health care is totally paid for via taxes by the government, then those numbers double.

$6,000 x 320,000,000 = 1,920,000,000,000

PER YEAR!
