Reality Check: Medicare For All?


MINNESOTA SENATOR AMY KLOBUCHAR IS GAINING TRACTION IN HER PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN AFTER AN AGGRESSIVE PERFORMANCE IN THIS MONTH’S CANADA DEBATE. SHE’S CLAIMING A MEDICARE FOR ALL HEALTH CARE PLAN WILL FORCE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE OFF OF THEIR PRIVATE INSURANCE. IS THIS TRUE? Reporter: AMY KLOBUCHAR WENT AFTER ELIZABETH ONE. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PLAN AND A PIPE JEAN IS SOMETHING YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET DONE. AND BERNIE SANDERS. I WROTE THE BILL. Reporter: F DéRER MEDICARE FOR ALL. STANDARDS PLAN FOR A FREE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM RUN BY THE GOVERNMENT. THERE IS JUST ONE CATCH. WHILE BERNIE WROTE THE BILL, I READ THE BILL. Reporter: APPARENTLY LOTS OF DRAMA ON PAGE NUMBER 8. ON PAGE 8 OF THE BILL, IT SAYS THAT WE WILL NO LONGER HAVE PRIVATE INSURANCE AS WE KNOW IT. Reporter: WHAT AMY KLOBUCHAR SAID IS TRUE. THERE’S LEGALESE PACKED INTO PAGE 8 BUT IT SAYS UNDER MEDICARE FOR ALL, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW FOR PRIVATE HEALTHCARE COMPANIES TO SELL BASIC PLANS. YOU WILL GET IT FREE. FROM THE GOVERNMENT. THAT MEANS 149 MILLION AMERICANS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO HAVE THEIR CURRENT INSURANCE. Reporter: 149 MILLION IS THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS THEY GET THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE FROM THEIR EMPLOYER OR THEIR UNION. THEY MAY NOT LIKE THE PROVIDER OR COVERAGE OR THEIR DEDUCTIBLES OR CO-PAYS. BUT FORCING THEM TO GIVE IT UP FOR GOVERNMENT RUN PLAN, THAT IS A BIG ASK. THE KAISER FAMILY FOUNDATION REPORTS MOST AMERICANS SUPPORT THE IDEA OF GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTHCARE LIKE MEDICARE FOR ALL. UNTIL THEY DISCOVER THAT THEY WILL LOSE THEIR PRIVATE INSURANCE. AND THE NUMBERS FLIPPED. AMY KLOBUCHAR SUPPORTS BUILDING ON THE EXISTING AFFORDABLE CARE ACT BY ADDING A PUBLIC OPTION AND EXPANDING THE CARE AND MEDICAID AND CUTTING DRUG PRICES. THAT IS A REALITY CHECK. SENATOR KLOBUCHAR’S PUBLIC

  1. How misleading, of course we will give up private insurance to got to govt insurance healthcare that over 90% of doctors, clinics and hospitals will cover that is lower cost, covers dental, hearing, mental health, eye sight and caps prescription drugs to $200 a month. The media loves missinforming the public on the details.

  2. how can someone polling at 3% also be gaining traction in the polls? klobuchar’s core constituency seems to be media pundits because I see hardly anyone else that wants her to be president.

  3. why does yang want to give a 1000 a month to the rich,why do the senators and congressman need 1,000 a month,they make 175,000 a year and most are very wealthy,why does fox news,cnn news and msnbc news reporters who have million dollar salaries need a 1,000 a month,why do all the millionaires and billionaires need a 1,000 a month,why does everyone want to help the rich.why not double the 1,000 a month to 2,000 a month and only give it to people who make less than 100,000 per year,same with medicare for all,it should only be for people who make less than 100,000 a year.let those scum fox news,msnbc,cnn news and republicans keep their private health care plans,that they want to keep to protect the billionaire donors from paying taxes to maintain their million dollar salaries.yang wants to help the rich and screw are vets and retirees ,by not giving them a 1,000 a month,but thinks its more important giving it to the rich who dont need it.dont let yang screw us,vote for bernie sanders for president
