The Medicare for All plan, recently announced in the House of Representatives, “will result in care for none,” according to Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., an anesthesiologist by profession. “If you like the DMV, you’ll love Medicare for All.”
Rep. Harris was joined by two other physicians who serve in Congress, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., and Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn., for the March edition of Conversations with Conservatives, a monthly question-and-answer session hosted by The Heritage Foundation.
The three congressmen told Heritage’s Rob Bluey, who moderated the conversation, what they thought about the plan, which would leave patients with little or no choice, less access to care, and long wait times. It’s also estimated $32.6 trillion over 10 years. They shared their vision of what health care in America should look like instead.
Conversations with Conservatives is a group of free-market and liberty-minded members of Congress who meet regularly to discuss the most important issues of the day. The meetings are streamed live on Facebook and Twitter and promoted on Heritage and The Daily Signal’s social media channels to give you an unfiltered opportunity to hear directly from members of Congress.
The next Conversations with Conservatives will take place in April.
