MI Responds: Warren's New "Medicare for All" Plan

Editor’s note: Chris Pope responds to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s recently announced “Medicare for All” plan. 

Senator Elizabeth Warren’s single-payer proposal would impose drastic cuts on American health care. We know for sure from watching Maryland, which already has government-set prices, that American hospitals would see revenues slashed by around 25%—likely forcing some facilities to cut back services and others to close entirely. A similar story would likely play out nationwide.
