Many high profile Democrats have campaigned on “Medicare for All,” a universal healthcare plan under which all Americans would be covered by government-funded healthcare.
But few know how the country would pay for it – including the Chief Executive Officer of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
“I don’t think we’re there yet,” Seema Nanda said at Yahoo Finance’s “All Markets Summit: America’s Financial Future” on Tuesday.
She was asked by an interviewer how the United States would cover the trillions of dollars per year that it would cost to implement such a healthcare plan. The interviewer cited “credible studies” that would “double everybody’s taxes or maybe triple everybody’s taxes.”
“So, you know, your answer is I don’t know how we’re going to get there, but these are all big conversations that we need to be engaged in,” Nanda continued.
Nanda deflected by calling the GOP’s Tax Cut and Jobs Act “irresponsible.”
“Paying for Medicare for All remains a daunting task for Democrats,” according to a Breitbart report. “Multiple studies have estimated that the plan would cost between $32 and $38 trillion. Mercatus Center scholar Charles Blahous released a study in August that found that Medicare for All will cost $38 trillion over the next ten years, contrary to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) claim that the plan would save America money.”
Now that the Democrats control the House of Representatives, it is possible that some of the new blood, especially unabashed socialist Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, will make a push to introduce such legislation. She campaigned on universal healthcare, as did Sanders in his popular 2016 presidential campaign.
Rudy Giuliani Will Testify Before Michigan House Oversight Committee on Electoral Irregularities
His testimony will take place Wednesday.
Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer of President Trump, will be testifying before the Michigan House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.
Michigan state representative and House Oversight Committee Chairman Matt Hall (R) released the following statement on Giuliani’s in-person testimony:
“Election security and transparency are top concerns for people I represent. I have been getting thousands of emails and calls from people regarding this election. Other legislators have also. People have questions and concerns about the election process, the way it was handled and how our future elections could be impacted,” said Hall. “Rumors and hearsay are everywhere and our committee is attempting to get to the bottom of all of it to deliver people answers they deserve.”
“We can go a long way to achieving this by going straight to the top. Mr. Giuliani believes there were many problems with how this election was conducted and has alleged that there was significant fraud in Michigan. I am glad we were able to find time to make this work with the President’s legal team. This is an opportunity for us to get definitive answers – in-person – about Mr. Giuliani’s claims and evidence, while we work to provide clarity and transparency to people who have taken issue with our state’s election system,” Hall added.
Representative Hall also noted that Giuliani had been asked to submit written testimony after “logistical issues” initially prevented him from testifying in-person. But it appears those issues have been ironed out.
Michigan’s House Oversight Committee is comprised of six Republicans and three Democrats.
Giuliani’s testimony is one to pay particular attention to. Big League Politics reporter Shane Trejo has been instrumental in exposing electoral irregularities and suspicious behavior in the state of Michigan. He has discussed what he has seen and heard with Michelle Malkin and One American News Network (OANN), among others:
