New Analysis Discovers That Health Spending Would Go Up Under ‘Medicare For All,’ $7 Trillion Over Ten Years

Published

on

A new analysis of the “Medicare for all” idea that’s being backed by socialist Democrats like Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would actually cause health spending to skyrocket over $7 trillion in ten years time.

The analysis comes from the Urban Institute, destroys the argument many on the left are using to justify the adoption of such a system that says this idea would decrease spending by having a single public plan.

This report comes at a time when Warren has faced a lot of scrutiny for not articulating how this kind of plan would be funded.

The analysis, coupled with an extensive healthcare reform study authored with the Commonwealth Fund, finds that while “Medicare for all” would leave no one uninsured, over a decade it would increase government spending by $34 trillion while overall healthcare spending would climb to $59 trillion.

That total is $7 trillion more than the U.S. is projected to spend over 10 years under current law, though under “Medicare for all” the federal government would be covering a much larger share of the costs.

The study finds “Medicare for all” may cost the federal government as little as $32 trillion if employers were to increase wages as a result of not having to pay for employee coverage, which would bring in more income tax revenue. But employers may not make that change, and if the final law were to pay doctors and hospitals more than Medicare rates then the proposal would be even more expensive.

“It is a big lift to get this kind of money, for sure,” Dr. David Blumenthal, president of the Commonwealth Fund, said in a phone call with reporters.

Researchers have concluded that the cost of providing more healthcare to more individuals is going to be much higher than the savings the system would supposedly accrue by reducing the amount medical providers get reimbursed through the slashing of administrative costs.

This is a big deal if there ever was a big deal. And in case you weren’t clear, yes, it is a big deal. Here’s the deal, via “fake news” CNN: An FBI official is under criminal investigation for allegedly altering a document that was central to the FBI’s surveillance of a Trump campaign official in 2016, according to a new report from CNN. “The finding is expected to be part of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of the FBI’s effort to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide,” CNN reported. “Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.” WATCH: THE FIX WAS IN… FBI official allegedly altered document that was basis for FISA warrant on surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign. https://twitter.com/CaliforniaPanda/status/1197665317675294722?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197665317675294722&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-fbi-official-under-criminal-investigation-for-altering-document-used-to-start-probe-into-trump-campaign Reactions: And CNN puts it in paragraph 2 – bc this is the most important thing – that Trump will accuse the FBI of wrongdoing in this investigation.

Adam Schiff Says President Trump’s Actions Are Worse Than ‘Anything Nixon Did’ (Details)

Based on……what??

John Salvatore

Democrat California Congresslady Adam Schiff doesn’t know much about history. Schiff, a beta male, might actually be completely ignorant. His statement on Nixon vs. Trump pretty much makes it clear. From The Hill: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) used his closing remarks in Thursday’s hearing to lay out the case for impeaching President Trump and plead for Republicans to look beyond their party, arguing that the president’s actions toward Ukraine go “beyond anything Nixon did.” Schiff argued that Trump’s abuse of power was clear and on a more significant scale than the Watergate break-in that eventually led to the impeachment of former President Richard Nixon. For whatever reason, Schiff stated, “The difference between then and now is not the difference between Nixon and Trump, it’s the difference between that Congress and this one. And so we are asking … where are the people who are willing to go beyond their party to look to their duty?” WATCH: Rep. Adam Schiff: “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters.” “Where is Howard Baker? Where are the people who are willing to go beyond their party to look to their duty?” https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1197629141522075648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197629141522075648&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F471565-schiff-says-trumps-actions-go-beyond-anything-nixon-did POTUS called out Schiff for being the lying [insert word here] that he is. And in typical Trump fashion, he spoke the truth and did so with confidence. See for yourself… If Shifty Adam Schiff, who is a corrupt politician who fraudulently made up what I said on the “call,” is allowed to release transcripts of the Never Trumpers & others that are & were interviewed, he will change the words that were said to suit the Dems purposes. Republicans… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1191155312084082688?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1191155312084082688&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-correctly-says-adam-schiff-would-alter-transcripts-of-impeachment-testimony-to-suit-the-dems-purposes%2F ….should give their own transcripts of the interviews to contrast with Schiff’s manipulated propaganda.
