What's the difference between Medicaid Expansion and Medicare for All? Bernie Sanders' plan of "Medicare for All" would entirely eliminate Medicaid because just as it states, all people would be covered by Medicare. Currently Medicare is a medical plan only for senior citizens, and all taxpayers pay into it during our working years from our paychecks. It's Social Security or the FICA deduction.
A veteran of the Kansas legislature, Virgil Peck, says Medicare for All would either bankrupt our Nation or significantly increase taxes on all working Americans. Peck said Bernie's tweet reveals what many conservatives have said: Medicaid Expansion is a step in the wrong direction as it would make more people rely on the government, remove incentives for self-improvement, and is a step towards a single-payer, government healthcare system.
Let your legislators hear from you on this.
