To Defend Extreme Proposal, House D’s Resort To Outright Lies

During today’s “Medicare for All” hearing in the House Ways & Means Committee, Republicans pointed out the danger in a system that eliminates private health insurance and forces every American into a one-size-fits-all government plan.

The Democrats’ bizarre response reveals just how desperate they are:

Here are some facts Rep. Jayapal is leaving out:

  • The Democrats’ plan would eliminate private insurance, ripping health insurance away from more than 158 million
  • Both liberal and conservative think tanks estimated Medicare For All would cost taxpayers $32 trillion over ten years.
  • When the House Budget Committee previously held a hearing on Medicare for All, Rep. Jayapal – the lead sponsor of the legislation – only stuck around for a few minutes.

Bottom Line: House Democrats will say anything to distract from the truth about Medicare for All. This is a government takeover over health care that eliminates choice, reduces quality of care, and forces everyone into a one-size-fits-all plan.
