Warren Doubled Down On 'Medicare For All' As Voters Had Second Thoughts

Warren Doubled Down On 'Medicare For All' As Voters Had Second Thoughts

It would use about $360 billion of its 10-year savings from lower drug costs to create Medicare coverage for dental care, hearing, and vision, filling major gaps for seniors.

The bill would cap drug copays and deductibles at $2,000 a year for Medicare recipients.

@Ocasio2018  says she's "tired" of people saying that "Medicare for All" and free college tuition are free handouts from somebody else.

This would cap annual out-of-pocket expenses for seniors or Medicare at $2,000 and stop drug companies from raising prices without a good reason. Republicans say their own proposal is more bipartisan and more likely to become law.

In this week’s #PulseCheck , @AliceOllstein  & @adamcancryn  join host @ddiamond  to discuss what's getting missed in the presidential debates about Medicare-for-all, from the likely Senate math in 2021 to the complications posed by Obamacare repeal.

This is what happened when people in the U.K. were asked how much health care costs in the U.S. Remember that our outrageous for-profit system is not the norm in other countries. We can and we must do better. We need Medicare for All now.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm feeling good. I'm fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover. None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!

Today at The Villages in Florida, it was my great honor to sign an Executive Order on protecting and improving Medicare for our Nation’s Seniors. Today’s action is only the latest of many important steps we are taking to dramatically improve healthcare for the American People!

REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE VOTED THIS WEEK TO CUT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID IN HALF The GOP just keeps coming for your health care again and again and again and again. And this time, they want to do it while extending President@realDonaldTrump ’s tax cuts for the wealthiest few. No

All Republicans support people with pre-existing conditions, and if they don’t, they will after I speak to them. I am in total support. Also, Democrats will destroy your Medicare, and I will keep it healthy and well!

Trump finally submitted a budget (a month late). Let's take a look, shall we? $8 billion for a wall Congress rejected. $840 billion in cuts to Medicare. Trillion dollar deficits for the next four years. You know what, Mr. President, keep your budget. We’ll take it from here.

I couldn’t have framed the election better than McConnell did this week. He says if GOP wins they will: a. try again to repeal ACA and replace it w nothing b. cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for their corporate tax cut c. provide no check on Trump Got it, America?

As a CEO, Rick Scott oversaw a multi-billion dollar Medicare fraud - the biggest in American history resulting in 14 felonies and a $1.7 billion fine. What makes you think that as Governor, he wouldn’t steal a few thousand votes by shutting down the count?

Make no mistake: After they borrow $1.5 trillion to pass a windfall tax break for corporations and the rich, Trump, Ryan, and McConnell will seek cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to pay it back.
