    Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare-for-all’ plan includes health care for illegal immigrants

    11 hrs ago
    Adam Shaw

    Sen. Bernie Sanders', I-Vt., newly unveiled ‘Medicare-for-all’ plan, backed by a host of other 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, would open the door to giving health care to illegal immigrants -- a marked left-wing departure from past proposals for healthcare reform.

    The legislation, unveiled by Sanders this week, and signed onto by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, N.Y., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., does not speak directly about immigrants but refers to covering U.S. “residents” instead.

    Both Sanders’ bill in the Senate, and a corresponding House bill introduced by Reps. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., would extend coverage to every U.S. resident -- a shift from the Affordable Care Act, which limited benefits to citizens, nationals and “lawfully present” immigrants. The House bill also prohibits the government from denying benefits because of "citizenship status."

    While the Health and Human Services Secretary is given the task of defining residency, the federal government is tasked with taking steps to ensuring that “every person in the United States has access to health care, The Washington Examiner notes.

    Sanders told CBS News' Ed O'Keefe, that his bill "guarantees, like every other major country on Earth, health care to every man, woman and child in this country."

    He told The Washington Post: "My plan would cover every U.S. resident."

    Such provisions are not new for Sanders, who has in the past pushed plans that would not exclude those in the country illegally. But it does mark a change for the 2020 field as a whole, which has moved dramatically to the left. Sanders’ bill would also mostly abolish private health insurance. Some estimates put the cost up to $32 trillion over the next decade.

    Neither the House nor the Senate bill is likely to be made law while Republicans control the Senate and the White House. Republicans would almost certainly oppose either bill as a bloc, but even on the Democratic side, the plan could face significant resistance.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in February that Medicare-for-all” may not be “as good a benefit as the Affordable Care Act.”

    “It doesn’t have catastrophic [coverage] -- you have to go buy it. It doesn’t have dental. It’s not as good as the plans that you can buy under the Affordable Care Act,” she told Rolling Stone in an interview. “So I say to them, come in with your ideas, but understand that we’re either gonna have to improve Medicare — for all, including seniors — or else people are not gonna get what they think they’re gonna get,” she said. “And by the way, how’s it gonna be paid for?”

    As to the broader concept of a single-payer plan, she put the cost at $30 trillion and asked: “Now, how do you pay for that?”

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., expressed skepticism this week, saying it was just one of several proposals the party is considering: "Different Democrats have different ways to get there."

    But the pushback from Democratic leadership has not stopped the shift left by both House freshmen and 2020 presidential candidates, particularly on the thorny topic of illegal immigration.

    Former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro has called for illegal immigration to be treated as a civil, rather than a criminal matter. Meanwhile Gillibrand, as part of her call for “comprehensive immigration reform,” suggested that she wants to expand Social Security to those in the country illegally.

    "First, we need comprehensive immigration reform," she said last month in Iowa. "If you are in this country now you must have the right to pay into Social Security, to pay your taxes, to pay into the local school system and to have a pathway to citizenship. That must happen."

    Billions of dollars of FRUAD in the current Medicare program with the patients who are already in it.

    That fraud will be off the charts to offer Medicare For All.

    And where is MY refund and the employer matching that has been paid into it over the last 40 years?

    Give us our money back and STOP taking it out of our paychecks now.

    That includes Trump who at the moment is having them hauled to hospitals by the thousands for FREE medical care, within hours of the walking across the border!

    Bernie, AOC, Beto are NOT the president. Why isn't everyone concerned with what is happening while we have a Republican President and he is in charge?

    The best way to keep Bernie, AOC, and Beto from being in charge is for the one who is in charge to ACT, KEEP HIS PROMISES, and

    Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) gives the President of the United States broad authority to implement immigration restrictions by proclamation.

    The statute allows the President to suspend the entry of any aliens or of aclass of aliens or place restrictions on the entry of a class of aliens temporarily if he or she determines that the entry of such aliens would be detrimental to the U.S. interest.

    ‘Medicare-for-all’ sponsor says plan would gut 1 million private insurance jobs

    By Adam Shaw | Fox News

    Video at the page link

    Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., the lead House sponsor of the sweeping “Medicare-for-all” health care plan, said this week that her proposed program would force about 1 million employees of private health insurance companies out of their jobs.She made the remarks during a town hall at American University, while stressing her goal to try and help those "displaced" by a shift to a government-managed health care system.

    "There are a lot of people who work in the private insurance industry," Jayapal said. “We have thought carefully about how we’d take care of those folks because we think those people are very important.”
    'MEDICARE-FOR-ALL' BATTLE KICKS OFF WITH TENSE AND EMOTIONAL HOUSE HEARING
    In video taken by conservative group “America Rising,” she predicted “there's about a million people we think will be displaced if 'Medicare-for-all' happens” and then outlined how her bill would “take care” of those people whose jobs are made redundant.
    "We have set aside one percent a year of the total cost of the bill for five years to take care of a transition for employees in the private insurance sector," Jayapal said.
    "If they are able to retire, that might be one, pension guarantees, job training so they can move into a different system."



    Video https://youtu.be/s-jRNAl_vXc

    The bill, which was introduced in February by Jayapal and Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., was co-sponsored by more than 100 House Democrats. A number of 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls have given their support to similar “Medicare-for-all” plans -- including Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who introduced a new version last month -- though the proposal has seen skepticism from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.The displacement of private insurance workers would be inevitable under the kind of sweeping overhaul being proposed -- as would the transfer of millions of patients off their current policies, an issue that has proved a thorny one on the campaign trail.
    The text of Jayapal’s bill makes clear that private policies largely would be eliminated. One clause in the bill makes it “unlawful” for a private health insurer “to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.” The text prohibits employers from doing the same.
    The proposal took a step forward this week as the House Rules Committee held a hearing to look at the bill, with Republicans warning that the price tag could be as high as $32 trillion and describing the plan as a form of socialism.
    “Medicare-for-All would require all Americans to pay more in taxes, wait longer for care and receive potentially worse care, even worse it would put our existing Medicare recipients at risk,” Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said
    But Democrats on the panel offered support and downplayed Republican predictions of chaos if the plan were implemented.
    “People aren’t going to lose their health care with Medicare-for-all, you’d actually get to keep your doctors, and go to your hospitals that you currently have -- the only difference is that you wouldn’t have to deal with insurance companies,” Chairman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said.

    Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare-for-all’ plan includes health care for illegal immigrants

    At the moment Donald Trump is giving FREE medical to illegals, not just FREE medical but FREE formula, FREE diapers, FREE transportation.

    The only difference now is citizens are left out.

    Citizens could decide if this is the way Donald Trump plans to treat the citizens and favor the illegals, we'll just go with Bernie's plan.
