[Ed. – It’s more accurately called “Medicare for none,” because it isn’t Medicare at all; it’s single payer. Private insurance — i.e., employer plans — wouldn’t be allowed.]
[A]ccording to a new telephone poll that the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation published Tuesday morning, many … voters seem to think that Medicare for All would do things it wouldn’t ― or, more precisely, that it wouldn’t do things it would. …
Two-thirds of Democratic voters think that people with employer coverage could hold on to their policies under Medicare for All, according to the Kaiser study, which used a nationally representative sample of more than 1,200 adults.
In reality, both the Sanders proposal and its House counterpart, from Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), would prohibit the sale of private insurance that is “duplicative” of what the new government plan would offer.
That would effectively wipe out existing employer policies.
