Medicare for All?

“Medicare-for-all” would hurt public health, White House says

The “Medicare-for-all” idea backed by some Democrats would increase federal spending by $2.4 trillion in 2022, reduce innovation and lead to health care shortages and extended wait times, according to a report prepared by the White House Council of Economic Advisers. The policy would “be neither more efficient nor cheaper than the current system, and it could adversely affect health,” the report said.
