POLITICO: Partnership “Preemptively Responding” To House Medicare For All Bill
As some Members of Congress prepare to introduce Medicare for All legislation this week in the U.S. House, POLITICO reportsthat information on how much it would cost and how Americans would be forced to pay for it “won’t be included in the text of new legislation being rolled out this week, bill author Rep. Pramila Jayapal told reporters Monday evening.”
The “PARTNERSHIP FOR AMERICA’s HEALTH CARE FUTURE is preemptively responding,” POLITICO also reports, and “performed a ‘reality check’ on a letter sent by Jayapal to recruit cosponsors. Under the Partnership’s version of Jayapal’s letter , terms like the ‘Medicare for All Act of 2019’ are crossed out and replaced by the ‘Upend Employer-Provided Coverage For All Americans Act of 2019.’”
Despite, the decision by authors of this bill not to include information on its price tag or how it would be paid for, independent studies from the liberal-leaning Urban Institute and the libertarian-leaning Mercatus Center have estimated the costs of similar Medicare for All proposals at more than $32 trillion over ten years, and NBC News reports that implementing such a plan “requires a massive new source of tax revenue.”
