An article published today online in The Capital Times (https://madison.com/ct/opinion/column/dave_zweifel/plain-talk-medicare-for-all-gaining-steam-with-americans/article_95de6d36-24f6-5432-9598-b94e2dd11035.html; obtained on 1-20-2019) “Plain Talk: Medicare-for-all gaining steam with Americans” By Dave Zweifel indicates that in the US medicare for all is picking up increasing support. Here is an excerpt:
“When Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders first introduced a bill to enact Medicare-for-all in 2013, he had just one Senate sponsor — himself. When the bill was reintroduced in September 2017, he had 121 co-sponsors in the House and six in the Senate, including Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin. It was no longer being portrayed as socialism or even communism, but was being seen by many as a common-sense and fair system that would make health care a right for American citizens, not a privilege available only for the wealthy.
That $32.6 trillion cost every 10 years? Yes, that’s how much it would cost in actual outlays.
But you weren’t told by the Mercatus Center or even by several news stories about the report that the cost over 10 more years under America’s current system would actually cost more — $2 trillion more.”
