10. Did you read the article? Medicare for All will take much more than 2000 pages

 

The health care system would undergo major disruptions.

"The politics of Medicare — which serves roughly 50 million Americans — already make some things difficult or impossible, he said, pointing to a current fight in which doctors and patient advocacy groups blasted a proposal to move to a more cost-effective way to pay for cancer drugs. “You already can’t do certain things in Medicare because of the politicization,” he said. ”When you cover the whole country, it would be a lot of gridlock.”


We have many physicians who are phasing out Medicare patients because of the problems in the system - having to resubmit paperwork multiple times before getting approval for procedures, etc.

And all the GOP needs to do is point to the problems with the VA to get people believing misinformation that makes "Medicare for All" would be a "three word bill," look pale by comparison.
