The way forward is *Medicare Extra*. Neera Tanden's "Social Contract for the 21st Century" [View all]

A New Social Contract for the 21st Century
It is high time to rethink the relationshipóthe basic bargainóbetween the individual, companies, and our government.
BY NEERA TANDEN FROM JUNE 23, 2020

Tanden on Health Care Policy:

SNIP
"We have the ability to provide health-care coverage to all Americans, while at the same time ensuring that people can keep private insurance through their employer if they wish.
The way forward is *Medicare Extra*, a program that would set up a public insurance option via Medicare that would provide much more affordable health care, with coverage for dental, hearing, and vision, all with no deductibles and minimal copays.


The plan would achieve universal coverage, be open to anyone, and would incorporate the ACA and other individual coverage. It would also allow people who work for large employers to keep their coverage if they chose to do so.
For those who are uninsured, as well as those who are currently purchasing insurance through the Obamacare marketplaces, or who are Medicaid beneficiaries or newborns, they would automatically be enrolled in an improved Medicare program, one that would continue to cover seniors as well."
"And this system could be put in place for a fraction of the cost of Medicare for All."

BRAVO to the brilliant Neera Tanden.
💙👍


Neera Tanden has developed & offered perhaps, the most across the board, Workable & Cost effective Health Care policy to date.
Building on programs already in place, such as the ACA & by expanding & including Medicare & Medicaid, Tanden has her policy platform narrowed down to details that M4A has yet to present, & at far less the cost..

This defines the future forward careful planning & wonky brilliance of Ms Neera Tanden.

This is why she is perfectly suited for the position at OMB.
President Biden made an outstanding choice with Tanden.

Biden's recent staff & appointee selections along with VP Harris are indeed the face of the future of our Democratic Party.

These women don't just Talk the Talk.

Thank you President Biden.
