Does ‘Medicare for All’ end private insurance? Depends which candidate you ask.

“Medicare for All”? Or Medicare for all who want it?

Democrats running for president will need to decide which one they’re supporting or risk ending up in the muddled situation Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., found herself in last weekend.

Harris made a decision early in the race to run on single-payer Medicare for All, specifically a bill by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., that would effectively replace existing private health insurance plans with a souped-up version of Medicare that covers more than the current program and requires no premiums or deductibles.
