Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., came out swinging against the progressive plan to provide government health insurance for all Americans – and what has become a campaign mantra for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

“While Bernie wrote the bill, I read the bill,” Klobuchar fired at Sanders, arguing that the plan would remove millions of Americans off their private health insurance. “And on page eight – on page eight of the bill it says that we will no longer have private insurance as we know it.”

“I don’t think that’s a bold idea, I think it’s a bad idea,” she continued.

The line was a response to Sanders’ oft-repeated line that he “wrote the damn bill” that would move to a Medicare-for-All health insurance system.

    If every civilised society does it why cant we?

  2. Warren before Bernie on Medicare for all? Your bias and stupidity isn't showing at all corporate media.

  3. There are a lot of fax in here but a lot more personal opinion and you left out numbers like the cost of healthcare like right now of Americans aregoing to pay 50 trillion dollars in the next 10 years and if we move to a Medicaid for all it will only cost 33 trillion therefore all Americans will pay less for healthcare

  7. Did you (USA TODAY) even read Bernie Sanders M4A plan? This report is misleading

  8. Problem with Med for all. Hundreds of thousands of jobs gone in some of their Med for all BS. Yes I think all should have it but another BS con is I who do not use medicare often now get stuck paying higher taxes just so people who don't want to work or pay the costs of medicare can have medicare. More people will move to the Medicare the government provides. The VA may be pushed out of existence forcing people who need the VA onto the Med for all where they can't get the help they need. As a Veteran I don't see benefits for lower income people. Higher income people can just opt out of the taxes under whatever reason they come up with just like Obama care. Eventually more taxes and more taxes will be paid till we have no income at all. Next will be Housing for all where we will be forced to pay taxes for people to live in apartments and normal housing. Then after that More taxes for life insurance. Then more taxes for any other thing the Dems can think of to tax the people. an internet for all.

    These people could pay for their Medicare If 1) Employers payed proper wages.
    2) We were not taxed for every little thing.
    3) If housing costs had caps so people could not randomly up the costs for no reason.
    4) if items that are required did not cost so much.

    If you want to fix the problems we have you need to first start with what is broken.
    Our criminal system is broken,
    Our Immigration system is broken,
    Our Housing system is broken,
    Our medicare system is broken,
    Our Work system is still broken,
    The FDA is broken,
    The FBI is broken,
    The DHS is broken,
    Our voting system is massively flawed,
    So much broken and I didn't even list everything.

    Crime is up. 7 times child sex offenders not in prison. 3 strikes law being ignored or was changed.

    We have so many Illegal Immigrants that we can't keep track of them and more on the way. How is it that the Immigration system broke in the first place.

    Housing costs are so high that some people end up paying almost 2/3 of their income if not half or need a second job just to meet housing cots and still be able to eat.

    Prices for medical needs are so high that IE drugs, transportation, and many other area's that you go into debt just by going to the hospital. Cancer drugs or treatment is so high even though people donate into it's research.

    people are forced to work more than 1 job just to make ends meet. People are over worked in some jobs and they always find loopholes so they can underpay people. I know from experience.

    FDA has proven they can't do their jobs like they are supposed to as they have shown that they have human hearts with greed in them.

    FBI has proven that it can't be trusted as people within have taken sides involving presidential candidates. The FBI is supposed to be neutral in politics.

    DHS is the same as the FBI.

    The Voting system is so flawed that Illegals are able to vote using dead people SS #'s.

    So much broken and they are not even considering fixing it they just want to change the country into something that will be broken even more. How is it that our government can make laws and enforce them without the peoples Vote. How can we end up with so many problems that we can't even fix them anymore.

  9. If we elect a Democrat in 2020 here's what's going to happen

    1. They add trillions of dollars to our spending

    2. They tax the crap out of buisness owners (rich people) in order to pay for it so the rich people pay off workers putting millions of Americans out of work

    3. Our debt will still soar, as our economy collapses under the hefty tax burden and unemployment, and other countries will stop loaning us money because we can't pay them back

    4. The value of the dollar collapses and we go into a Depression, not a recession, a Depression with millions unemployed and a debt that won't stop rising and literally it will be the end of America as we know it

    Or we can elect Trump again who's tax cuts and roll back on buisness regulations have added 5,000 points to the stock market and driven unemployment down to it's lowest point in decades

    Your choice America

  10. Medicare for all? yet that’s good,that’s when everyone’s taxes go up.

  11. I don’t know an actual solution to health care system. Hospitals exist to make money. Healthcare is a business. People working in that hospital need to paid too. Some of those working in hospitals are highly trained and educated people who want / expect to be paid well. Then we have private practices, clinics and pharmacy benefit mangers. On top of that, there are things like unions and lobbyists pulling and tugging which aid to strengthen the ‘side’ they are on while placing pressure to the ‘side’ they oppose.

    These are just some other problems that pop into my head….Premiums, deductibles, whether or not healthcare providers are incentivize to prescribe treatments/ drugs from pharmaceutical company, a lack of small (good) pharmacies, mental illness and the stigma, dialysis and Davita, nursing home quality and the number of patients to nurses…. it goes on and on and on

    Healthcare has a lot of aspects and people don’t realize/ignore.

    I try to stay optimistic

  12. Healthcare is not a right! Stupid ass socialists.

  13. What is the point of taking a Medicare tax out of my check every week if I don’t have it and what happens to that money in the end?

  14. I am a therapist and would go out of business w Medicare for all, as many would.

  15. How much will this cost the American people.

  16. Lol 30 million no it's more like a hundred million at least

  17. Democrats healthcare policy is Socialism!!Deadly & Dangerous!! Where more people die,good doctors leave the country and you will have to stand in line just to see a doctor!! The evil list goes on why the Leftists healthcare policies will Kill You!! God Bless our Amazing President !!😇 Trump 2020!!❤😇🇵🇾

  18. I love how people think the Government can fix anything and that money and resources can be had with but a wave of the wand.

    I mean, Federal Student Loans dropped the price of education and enriched everyone's lives, right? Oh, wait…

  19. I think you meant to say they are pros at being cons.

  20. This is a really crappy deal for young people. You get taxed heavily during your prime working years, and you need health services the least during your prime. Do you really think this same system will still be around by the time you start needing more health services? Healthcare practically changes with every president now.

  21. Medicare only pays 80% of what they decide the procedure is worth. You need a supplemental plan otherwise you will end up paying the difference out of pocket. You have to pay into Medicare your whole life to be eligible when you are 65. My wife's hysterectomy the doctor's bill was $5,200. Medicare deemed the doctor's fee was $1,800 and paid 80% of that. The doctor has to write off the cost that Medicare wouldn't cover or you pay the difference. This is why many doctors are not taking Medicare patients any more. Doctors have to pay for the office and staff and to pay back their college loans. Ask a doctor what they think what would happen if everyone was under Medicare for all. If this is going to be paid for by raising your taxes will the people who don't pay any taxes also get free medical care? If so who will pay for them? Are you willing to pay for other peoples medical at the expense of having money taken out of your pocket. Will the government force them to take all patients? Do you want the government dictating how much a doctor can earn? Is this the kind of America that you want. You can bet that the SEIU is salivating thinking that the Democrats will force all medical workers to join their union. If you get unions involved you will see the cost sky rocket. Also will the government take over all of the hospitals and force them to run like the Veterans hospitals? A lot to think about before you decide to let the government become your Daddy.

  22. People don't want the cr*p you are selling!

  23. I guess it’s pointless to highlight the fact that socialized medicine is the worst option for our country. Anyone that has been paying attention knows that Medicare for all is another failed attempt to get a liberal elected. Someone needs to ask Biden why we need a new system already. What happened to his and Nancys’ plan? All the promises? How it was going to save everyone money, get to keep your doctor? I know, it was all lies. Obama told many lies. Now he and Michaels are buying their 15 million dollar mansion that was built on lies. Socialism will be the end. Many of our young idiot kids today don’t realize the doom associated with this bullshit plan. Instead they are now taught how to correctly gender someone, or how awful our history as Americans was. We are one election away from disaster in this country. I hope we can hold on to our great nation. Many that were far more worthy sure did fight for it.
