Single Payer more Fiscally Hawkish than Romney/Ryan.

This articles headline and point say it all:
UPI: Proponents also argue that Medicare-for-all is more fiscally hawkish than Romney's new running mate.

"Research shows that private insurance bureaucracy and paperwork consume 31 percent of every health care dollar," said Dr. Diljeet K. Singh, who is a board member of Physicians for a National Health Program, a Chicago-based nonprofit of 18,000 physicians across the country who support a Medicare-for-all system. "Streamlining payments through a single nonprofit payer system would save the United States more than $400 billion a year, enough to provide comprehensive, high-quality coverage for all Americans."
