Nice try. You’d first have to convince me that people who are using medical services now without paying, dumping the costs on those who do pay, will suddenly start paying their Part B premiums just like I do. “Medicare for All” is just a focus group tested phrase making it sound irresistible to people who think Medicare is free. It isn’t. So when we implement this plan, the people that will get stuck with the additional costs will be the people that are paying now.

“Medicare for All” is just a political power play, a way to force seniors who pay for it now to pay for everyone else as well. Including non-citizens.
