Liberal House members just unveiled H.R. 1384 – The Medicare for All Act of 2019, which has 106 co-sponsors. This comprehensive bill threatens to abolish virtually all private health plans – including employer-sponsored coverage – and impose total federal government control over Americans’ health care.
Heritage health care expert Bob Moffit briefed Senate staff members this week as a guest of the Senate Republican Policy Committee. He explained to them why this bill is highly authoritarian, unrealistically expensive, and would surely replicate the pattern of long waiting lists, care delays, and denials that British and Canadian citizens struggle with in their own single-payer health care systems.
Bob has written extensively about Medicare for All, with recent op-eds appearing in the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, and Newsday, among other publications. Get up-to-date on his analysis of Medicare for All here:
