House Dem Campaign Chief On Medicare For All: “Hard To Conceive How That Would Work” & Price Tag “A Little Scary”

The Hill reports today that that “House Democrats’ new campaign chief on Tuesday poured cold water on the progressive Medicare for All plan, dismissing it as just ‘one idea’ out there and warning that its estimated $33 trillion price tag was ‘a little scary.’” In an interview with the paper, Representative Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.), the chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), echoed the concerns of many Americans about the proposal’s disruptions to existing coverage and massive price tag:

“What do we have – 130 million-something Americans who get their health insurance through their work?  The transition from what we have now to Medicare for all, it’s just hard to conceive how that would work.  You have so many jobs attached to the health care industry” … “I think the $33 trillion price tag for Medicare for all is a little scary,” she said.  Various projections have concluded that the bill, which is formally backed by 107 House Democrats, would cost the government $32 trillion to $33 trillion over 10 years … “The vast majority of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives want to see us fix the Affordable Care Act and make it functional,” she said, “so we can protect people with pre-existing conditions and so people have affordable health care.”
