Medicare for All government chokehold would be even worse than private insurance: Doctor
USA Today

Before Medicare for All could ever enter the American doctor’s office, several economic and medical mountains would have to be moved.

First, the transition to a plan like the one Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed would be enormously expensive, more than $30 trillion over a 10-year period by some estimates.

Second, because the program bans private insurance, it would displace nearly 177 million people from their health insurance plans, including over 156 million from employer-based health insurance — which for many employees is the reason they took the job in the first place.
