    ‘Medicare-for-all’ sponsor says plan would gut 1 million private insurance jobs

    "There are a lot of people who work in the private insurance industry," Jayapal said. “We have thought carefully about how we’d take care of those folks because we think those people are very important.”

    "We have set aside one percent a year of the total cost of the bill for five years to take care of a transition for employees in the private insurance sector," Jayapal said. "If they are able to retire, that might be one, pension guarantees, job training so they can move into a different system."

    But Democrats on the panel offered support and downplayed Republican predictions of chaos if the plan were implemented.

    “People aren’t going to lose their health care with Medicare-for-all, you’d actually get to keep your doctors, and go to your hospitals that you currently have -- the only difference is that you wouldn’t have to deal with insurance companies,” Chairman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said.

    That card has been played before.

    Medicare for All = Medicaid for All = limited access to health care

    - the only difference is that you wouldn’t have to deal with insurance companies,” Chairman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said.

    Odd thing about that is this.

    CMS and the folks in Congress are trying as hard as they can to push people INTO Med Adv plans (private insurance) and get them OFF original Medicare.

    So which is it?

    You can't have it both ways.

    So-called 'Medicare for all' gets its 15 minutes of infamy

    The transition to single-payer would be a logistical nightmare — "complicated, challenging, and potentially disruptive," as the CBO report put it. That's an understatement. Medicare for All would outlaw private insurance and give the government responsibility for handling every single medical claim for just about every American patient. Only those currently covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Indian Health Service would be untouched by the new Medicare for All system.
