Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Accompanied by senators and supporters of the Democratic Party, presents its Medicare for All legislation on health care reform.
But the Democrats of Congress categorically repudiated these allegations, saying that only the committee of rules – not the spokesman's office or someone else in the leadership of the Democratic Party – had the final word at the hearing and that the hearing was intended for a quick, but thorough examination of Medicare for All.
However, the best democrats expressed skepticism about the legislation. Pelosi, for example, said he was personally a "agnostic" to Medicare for All, and he was frankly wondering in his interview with Rolling Stone magazine in February, "How do you pay for it?"
The Republicans have invited Charles Blaus, Senior Specialist. a researcher at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, as a witness on Tuesday to answer this question. Blaze is the author of a study according to which the plan will increase public health spending by $ 32.6 trillion in 10 years and will lead to historical tax increases.
These tax increases would compensate for costs by only about $ 2 trillion. Later, Blag blames that Occasio-Cortez has misinterpreted his research to try to claim that Medicare for All would save money.
The Republicans also invited Galen University President Gary-Marie Turner to testify. In the last month, Turner warned of the potential consequences that are at stake: "Everyone will have to give up their cover, including 173 million Americans who receive health insurance at the workplace, and taxes will be much higher to finance 32 trillion dollars. for comparison, federal revenues last year amounted to $ 3.4 trillion. "
In a statement, Housewife Republican leader Greg Walden described Medicare for All as an expensive, ineffective solution to a real problem.
"Health is deeply personal – it affects every American," said Walden. "Patients and families want more choice and control over their doctors, treatments, and coverage, who want lower costs and greater access to care, but government governance, universal health care is not the answer." The Democrats' plan is socialism. According to their plan, Americans will have fewer choices, taxes will soar, and access to care will slow down. "
Democrats have invited several witnesses, including economist Dean Baker, physician Farzon Nahvi, founder of Be Hero, Ady Barkan, who suffers from ALS.
But a Huffington Post report notes that "Medicare All Defenders Can Actually Be Broken" because some of the Democrat's witnesses do not explicitly support "Medic for All".
"How do you pay for it?"
An anonymous person who was proposed as a witness to the Rules Committee, but rejecting, wondered if the hearing would was simply a "farce" designed to protect the Affordable Care Act rather than raise Medicare for All.
] With the current Republican majority in the Proposal, there is no chance of moving forward. In an interview with Fox News earlier this month, Senate Major Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Promised to be a "grim reaper" of ideas like Medicare for All and Green New Deal while he was in power. McCannel will be re-elected in 2020.
The yesterday's hearing comes Monday by the government's Medicare and Social Security supervisors who found that the financial state of middle-level and working-level government retirement programs Americans remain unstable, with Medicare pointing to insolvency by 2026
In a statement, Jayapal, the legislator, said the cost of healthcare was unsustainable: "There is no other developed country on the face of the Earth who has a health system that so fragmented and expensive as ours. Health outcomes and barriers to care in America are the worst of any industrialized nation. Health is a human right and I am proud that the Rules Committee will hold this hearing on the Medicare for All Act as this majority discusses ways to strengthen our health care system for all. "
Limiting her comments to Medicare, White Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the Monday report by three cabinet leaders and the current Social Security Commissioner stressed the need for" serious "lawmakers to work with the administration with regard to bipartite changes to reduce costs, eliminate fraud and abuse, the program for future generations.

Sanders also uses the opportunity to criticize calls of Democrats to Extend Medicare's "governmental healthcare acquisition," which would exclude private sector opportunities, threaten access to health care for the elderly, and further exacerbate the federal budget in the 2020 elections with an Associated Press poll Press-HORC for Public Affairs Research found that support for Medicare for All is mostly concentrated among Democrats – not the independents who can hold the key to the White House.
The study found that Democrats enjoyed a 17% greater advantage over Republicans in the estimates of Americans who are more confident about health care, 40% to 23%. Compared to an audience that is more evenly divided about which party would better deal with a few other major areas of national politics, including economics, immigration and foreign affairs.
