Video explains why “Medicare for All”-like program would boost freedom, improve the jobs market

While he doesn’t attempt to describe it as a perfect solution, Economic Policy Institute Director of Research Josh Bivens has created a compelling new two-minute video that busts several myths about what would happen if the U.S. moved toward a Medicare for All-like program.

Check it out below and click here to read the Institute’s March report on the subject. At a time in which millions of Americans are losing their employment-based health care, Bivens’ argument is especially apt and timely.

    People like Josh are to afraid to say what they really want in our country. It’s not healthcare for all but rather SOCIALISM and control.

    I love it and have forwarded to my moderate D Congressman, Derek Kilmer, CD6 in Washington. Earlier, I forwarded the actual EPI report.

    HCARE should NOT be paired with your job. The ppl who lost theirs now can’t stay healthy and buy their medications! MEDICARE FOR ALL is the right solution!
