Response to Renew Deal (Original post)

26. What Chelsea Clinton said about Sanders dismantling Medicare, #aca etc and...

Sanders proposal.

Technically, all the health programs would be dismantled and merged into on Universal plan. The cost was not discussed as far as I know nor HOW this would be done. Be the jest of Sanders plan is that each state would run its own program. We have seen what the Red state governors have done already. And Why didn't the Sanders camp dispute any of the specifics


Chelsea Clinton Accuses Sanders of Trying to "Dismantle Obamacare"

...............Chelsea-->"Sen. Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare, and dismantle private insurance," she said, according to MSNBC. "I worry if we give Republicans Democratic permission to do that, we’ll go back to an era—before we had the Affordable Care Act—that would strip millions and millions and millions of people off their health insurance."

Chelsea Clinton is technically right: Millions of Americans would lose their current health insurance plans, which would be replaced by enrollment in a coverage program available to all (except, perhaps, undocumented immigrants). But it's unclear how a plan that would make almost everyone eligible for coverage would strip millions of health care coverage, which is what Clinton seemed to be saying. (The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)

Sanders' health care plan, which he outlined in legislation in 2013, would replace the current piecemeal approach to coverage through many different programs—private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP—with government-provided coverage for everyone. As with the Affordable Care Act's health care exchanges, Sanders' 2013 bill relies on states to develop single-payer plans. But as the Sanders campaign stresses, any state that refused to set up a singe-payer system would have the federal government step in and do it. So unlike with the current Medicaid expansion, states could not opt out of "Berniecare."

"It is time for the United States to join the rest of the industrialized world and provide health care as a right to every man, woman, and child," Sanders campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones said in a statement responding to Chelsea Clinton's attack. "A Medicare-for-all plan will save the average middle-class family $5,000 a year. Further, the Clinton campaign is wrong. Our plan will be implemented in every state in the union regardless of who is governor.".................

Sanders' campaign manager says that his healthcare pay-for is "not necessarily" releasing "before the caucuses."

Under attack, team Sanders puts out chart explaining pay-fors. But no mention of health care, his biggest plan.
