Even Doubling All Federal Individual and Corporate Income Tax

...Would NOT Fund $32.6-Trillion "Medicare for All"

 

199498_757progressives2.jpg

 

Charles Blahous, a senior research strategist at George Mason University's Mercatus Center, on Tuesday said, "Doubling all currently projected federal individual and corporate income tax would be insufficient to finance" Medicare for All.

 

Blahous spoke before the House Rules Committee about "Medicare for All," the health care plan proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and supported by several 2020 Democratic candidates. Blahous estimated the cost is between $32.6 trillion and $38.8 trillion.

 

"Medicare for All would add somewhere between $32.6 trillion and $38.8 trillion in new federal budget costs over the first ten years. The $32.6 trillion estimate is a lower bound estimate. It essentially assumes every cost containment provision in the bill saves as much as possible," Blahous said. "If instead things play out more consistently with historical trends, the new federal cost would be closer to $38.8 trillion."

 

"Now obviously such enormous numbers are very difficult to grasp," he added. "We’re talking about 11 to 13 percent of our GDP in 2022, rising to 13 to 15 percent of GDP in 2031 being added to the federal ledger."

 

Blahous then went on to say the United States doesn't have "historical experience with permanent government expansions of this size."

"So, to provide a sense of the magnitudes, the study notes that doubling all currently projected federal individual and corporate income taxes would be insufficient to finance even the lower bound estimate of $32.6 trillion," he said. "Now, to be clear, these would not be the total costs of Medicare for All. These would the federal government's net new cost above and beyond currently projected federal health obligations."

 

"Total federal spending on Medicare for All over the first ten years would be somewhere between $54.6 trillion and $60.7 trillion," Blahous added.

Half the country doesn’t pay federal income tax and it is not the wealthy.   

 

Explain how that preferential code makes sense

 

then explain how the top 10% pays 70% of the total federal income taxes as being preferential to the wealthy.

As the Democratic presidential hopefuls prepare to take to the debate stage tonight, we turn to a central issue of the campaign: Medicare for All. In a new study, Yale scholars have found that Medicare for All will save Americans more than $450 billion and prevent 68,000 deaths every year.

https://www.democracynow.org/2020/2/19/lancet_report_medicare_for_all

 

The study in The Lancet — one of the oldest and most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals — found that Medicare for All, supported by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, will save money and is more cost-effective than “Medicare for All Who Want It, “a model supported by Pete Buttigieg.

https://www.democracynow.org/2020/2/19/lancet_report_medicare_for_all

 

Sanders referenced the study at a campaign rally in Carson City, Nevada. For more, we go to New Haven, Connecticut, where we’re joined by Alison Galvani, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis at Yale’s School of Public Health. She is the lead author of the new Lancet study, “Improving the prognosis of health care in the USA.”

HA!!  Single payer Healthcare IS Government RUN SOCIALIZED Medicine... AND, it WOULD NOT Create jobs, it would KILL JOBS !!  BUT, that's what Socialists and Democrats are GOOD at... Creating NEW Government Bureaucracy, and Destroying Manufacturing and Free Market JOBS !! 

 

NO ONE HAS ASKED FOR GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE I WANT SINGLE PAYER INSURANCE FOR MY TAX DOLLARS.  ( HA!! Single payer IS Government Controlled Health Care !!)

 

I DON'T WANT MY TAX DOLLARS PAYING FOR:

 

- PREFERENTIAL TAX CODES FOR Businesses (Has resulted in MILLIONS of new Manufacturing jobs for American Middle class)

- NOT FOR INVADING OTHER COUNTRIES (After ISIS was defeated, we've been reducing forces ever since)

- NOT FOR WORLD WIDE OIL CONTROL (America is NOW energy INDEPENDENT... NOT thanks to Obama, but THANKS to Donald Trump )

- NOT FOR CORPORATE WELFARE  (After the Tax breaks were passed, MILLIONS of new Manufacturing jobs were added for American Middle class)

- NOT FOR TRUMP DEFENSE LAWYERS (99% of the lawyers in America are Democrats, and THEY have been attacking Trump for 3 years... and YOU have a problem with Trump even defending himself?)

- NOT FOR A WALL (The WALL will save us close to $300 Billion a year... because we WON'T have to pay for Illegals taking government $$$ they are not entitled to )

- NOT FOR SPLITTING UP FAMILIES AND LOCKING UP CHILDREN (Splitting up ILLEGAL families who WOULD NOT have been split up if they would not have tried to enter America ILLEGALLY !!)

- NOT FOR PRIVATIZATION FUNDING AND GUARANTEED PRIVATIZATION PROFITS (I have NO idea what you're even TALKING about here?)

- NOT FOR SHORING UP THE MEDICAL INSURANCE INDUSTRY  (YOU would advocate for socialized medicine, which would be MORE expensive, MORE Corrupt, and LESS efficient... and YOU have a problem with just FIXING the system that has worked WELL for 70 YEARS  ??!!)

- NOT FOR BAILING OUT CORRUPT FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS (Bush's bail out of the financial institution was PAID BACK by the banks within a YEAR or TWO... However, the Obama bail out of the Auto industry cost shareholders BILLIONS of Dollars, because Obama TOOK ownership from the Bond Owners, and gave CONTROL to the UNIONS... THAT was a Quid Pro Quo for the Unions who helped elect Barack Obama !!  SHOULD we INDICT Barack Obama ?

- ETC ETC ETC  (YES, the Democrat LIES go ON and ON !!)

 

IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE USA GOVERNMENT COULD WELL AFFORD SINGLE PAYER INSURANCE FOR ALL OF WE TAXPAYERS SIMPLY BY

ELIMINATING ALL OF THE ABOVE = RESPONSIBLY MANAGING THE PEOPLE'S TAX DOLLARS... NO the US government could NOT !!   We do not need something as HUGE and COMPLEX as Healthcare, to be controlled by an entity that is as INEFFICIENT, SHORT SIGHTED, and CORRUPT as the U.S. Government !!  Donald Trump did an AUDIT of the Defense Depts the last few years... the RESULT?  They evidently SPENT 3 TIMES as much money as they had... something to do with Double, Triple and Quadruple counting money as it moved between agencies... IF they don't even KNOW where the money GOES... or HOW are they going to account for it?  HOW are they EVER going to spend it efficiently?   And the Defense Dept. is probably THE MOST efficient and MOST accountable agency in ALL of the Government !!  Try the same with the Dept of Energy, the Dept of Interior, and the others... and it's 10X WORSE !!  and YOU would put a NEW $70 TRILLION program into THAT NIGHTMARE... THAT is how Government Bureaucrats, Government Contractors, and anyone associated with the CLUSTER FVUCK get RICH... it's: 1)  the VAST quantities of money, 2)  the LACK of Accountability, 3)  the OPPORTUNITY for CORRUPTION !!
