How Bernie Sanders would fund his Medicare for All plan

On Wednesday afternoon on the second floor of the Hart Senate Office Building, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) officially unveiled his much-hyped Medicare for All plan. The senator was flanked by his 16 co-sponsors, many of them rising stars in the Democratic party and nearly every one of them talked about as a potential presidential candidate in 2020.

The basic idea of the plan is this: Over the course of four years, the state would expand eligibility for Medicare until every resident of the United States is ultimately covered by the single-payer, taxpayer-funded program.

“Today, all of us stand before you and proudly proclaim our belief that health care in America must be a right, not a privilege,” Sanders said. “Today, we begin the long and difficult struggle to end the international disgrace of the United States, our great nation, being the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all of our people.”

The idea is one Sanders has been advocating for decades and one he ran on in the Democratic primary during the last election cycle.
