There are only two ways to pay for the medical care that is “paid” for by Medicare for all, collect the money through taxes or borrow it with sovereign debt. While the average worker’s $22,000 is skimmed by insurance companies, the bulk of it goes to paying medical costs. These costs, and many more, given the expansion of coverage and the improvement of that coverage, will still have to be paid. So, the worker gets a large portion of his former premium dollar in wages when private insurance shrivels and dies, unless of course you are proposing that the employer keeps it all, the government issues debt to pay the total cost of the expanded volume of health care being delivered, both moves pump consumer cash into the economy.
