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.

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.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Do as I say, not as I do. That should be the Democrat Party’s official motto. There’s no denying that liberals are raging hypocrites on most issues. Why not just come out and admit it? Who do they think they’re fooling? Check out what the liberal mayor of Chicago just did that regular Joe’s can’t do right now because of the pandemic, via Chicago Sun-Times: Getting your roots done isn’t essential, but getting your hair cut apparently is — at least if you’re the mayor of Chicago. Mayor Lori Lightfoot Monday defended getting her hair cut over the weekend at a time when beauty parlors are shut down. Lightfoot said, “I’m in the public every day. And candidly, my hair was not looking the way it did. I thought maybe I’d do it myself, but I knew that would be disaster.” She added, “But I think what really people want to talk about is, we’re talking about people dying here. We’re talking about significant health disparities. I think that’s what people care most about.” A Lightfoot tweet from a week ago: https://twitter.com/chicagosmayor/status/1244762897743351808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1244762897743351808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fchicago.suntimes.com%2Fcity-hall%2F2020%2F4%2F6%2F21211314%2Fgetting-roots-done-not-essential-getting-hair-cut-mayor-lightfoot VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah7xQHo9WOQ Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1247345860758974464 https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1247358731790188544 https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1247340895013306370 https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1247357937896620032 https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1247357076378013696 https://twitter.com/ABC7News/status/1247360709123547137 https://twitter.com/MSDNCNews/status/1247355579892477953 https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1247357575697440769 https://twitter.com/wsvn/status/1247354661000097792 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1247350270507417600

President Trump has been blasted left and right by Democrats and the mainstream media for promoting the drug hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus. Nevada’s liberal governor even banned the drug from his state just days before New York’s Democrat governor said he has seen positive results from hydroxychloroquine. Ultimately, it looks like the anti-malarial drug is working wonders for a lot of people all over the nation. And one Democrat who was infected with COVID-19 has some high praise for POTUS. From Detroit Free Press: LANSING – A Democratic state representative from Detroit is crediting hydroxychloroquine — and Republican President Donald Trump who touted the drug — for saving her in her battle with the coronavirus. State Rep. Karen Whitsett, who learned Monday she has tested positive for COVID-19, said she started taking hydroxychloroquine on March 31, prescribed by her doctor, after both she and her husband sought treatment for a range of symptoms on March 18. […] Whitsett said she was familiar with “the wonders” of hydroxychloroquine from an earlier bout with Lyme disease, but does not believe she would have thought to ask for it, or her doctor would have prescribed it, had Trump not been touting it as a possible treatment for COVID-19.
