Most Dems still don’t understand that the so-called “Medicare for All” is nothing like Medicare, that it won’t supplement, but eliminate.
Two-thirds of Democratic voters think that people with employer coverage could hold on to their policies under Medicare for All, according to the Kaiser study, which used a nationally representative sample of more than 1,200 adults.
In reality, both the Sanders proposal and its House counterpart, from Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), would prohibit the sale of private insurance that is “duplicative” of what the new government plan would offer.
That would effectively wipe out existing employer policies.
Private insurers could still offer supplemental plans, but only to pay for extras, like cosmetic surgery and premium hospital rooms, that the government plan didn’t cover.
This is the sharp edge that will pop up more as primary season goes on.
Even most Dems are not on board with this. And once the awareness explosions begin, that will be a game-changer.
