Originally aired: Wednesday, December 12, 2018
According to recent polling, 70% of Americans support Medicare For All, a plan first championed by Bernie Sanders. But the largest question has always been: where will the money come from? According to a thorough economic analysis of the Medicare For All plan, taxpayers will actually save $500 billion a year. That analysis was led by Robert Pollin, Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, also the co-founder of the Political Economy Research Institute. Pollin explains exactly how the plan is paid for and what type of coverage every American could expect.
