Critics of Medicare for All, which was also endorsed by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a former Democratic presidential candidate who suspended her presidential campaign on Thursday, have also repeatedly questioned how such a plan would be paid for. They've argued that it would be far too expensive and become a major drain on the federal budget.

'Our study is actually conservative because it doesn't factor in the lives saved among underinsured Americans—which includes anyone who nominally has insurance but has postponed or foregone care because they couldn't afford the copays and deductibles,' Alison Galvani, an author of that study.

Would it not be helpful if Bernie and all Medicare For All supporters stopped saying that M4A would be free? Wouldn't it make accurate sense to instead call it "Public-Funded, Public-Administered Health Care" that, incidentally, would cost taxpayers LESS overall than the Insurance-Industry-based program we're now enduring?

That said...It would be helpful to mention the notorious health-damaging Wall St. industries (cigs, weapons, pesticides, oil, fracking, plastics, junk food, etc etc) in which for-profit insurers invest BILLIONS of what would be better spent on people's health care. That health insurers invest so much into the industries that may have caused a customer's/patient's health problems, not to mention the contribution to climate disasters is nuts. Worthy of exposure and condemnation. No? Yes?
