As the unionized workers in Nevada just said to Bernie, no thanks. You are taking away their benefits. They do not get to keep them. When you say they get to keep their benefits, that is a falsehood. MFA is actually a promise to replace those existing benefits with benefits under Medicare. Will their existing doctors take their new Medicare cards? Will the waiting rooms be jammed? Will they get to see specialists? Will deductibles be lower or higher ? Until you think through and get solutions to all the problems of cost and supply and availability instead of snap my fingers and its done answers, real people with real health needs won’t jump off that cliff.
