Sanders: Under Medicare for All, Private Insurers Will Solely Cover Cosmetic Surgery

MUSCATINE IOWA- APRIL 06 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders host a campaign rally at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center

His personal financial information is under more scrutiny now that he is the front-runner in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. "Respondents were then asked to select a candidate for whom they would vote".

Mr. Sanders raised over $18 million dollars in the first month and a half of his presidential campaign, Faiz Shakir, his campaign manager said last week. His emergence as a factor is driven by a 33-point increase in name recognition, nearly all of it favorable. "What do people get for that in terms of care, and what do they pay for that along the way?" And his administration is arguing in court for the full eradication of the Affordable Cart Act, former President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

Already, it has an impressive list of Senate cosponsors - including Sanders' rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination, Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

In 2016, he bought a vacation home in North Hero, Vermont, on Lake Champlain, paying $575,000 through a trust called the Islands Family Trust.

Under Medicare for All, Americans would no longer pay premiums or face insurance deductibles as the government-run system replaced private health insurance offered through employers, the mainstay of coverage for more than 160 million Americans.

Sanders' office released a paper outlining options to pay for his last version of Medicare for All, estimated to cost upwards of $1 trillion per year, although none of those options was included in the legislation itself. "It is about whether we maintain a dysfunctional system which allows the top five health insurance companies to make over $20 billion in profits past year", Mr. Sanders said Wednesday in a statement.

With Sanders' idea returning to the forefront, Republicans have a fresh opportunity to slam his plan as too costly and unworkable. The other White House contender in the Senate, Amy Klobuchar, supports universal healthcare and expanding Medicare but has not committed to plans that would eliminate private insurance.

Trump has said he will take up health care after next year's election, essentially making it a central campaign issue.

In polls, approval for the concept of "Medicare-for-all" drops when people learn that under such a program, they would very likely lose their current health plan (even if the government-offered plan could theoretically provide more generous coverage).

This movement to embrace a more incremental policy comes as politicians tread carefully over the political land mines a "Medicare-for-all" endorsement could unleash, while seeking to capitalize on voters' growing appetite for health overhaul. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday, April 15, from 6:30 to 7:30pm ET in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. "A lot of candidates feel if they endorse a plan that leaves some private insurance, they get more time to say what their ideas are about". That's the most important thing, " Tanden said.
