This stance should disqualify de Blasio and Warren. Big companies make enough money to offer excellent private health insurance to employees and that should be retained. A government-run plan, if administered efficiently, can co-exist alongside private, as it does in Germany.

The more people hear about “Medicare for all” the more skeptical they get; the bit about “healthcare as a human right” sounds great until you realize that may not actually happen if such a rollout gets botched or is held up by partisan sabotage which we know never happens in DC.

So what’s the best way to fund a “Medicare for Al”l that could serve as a backup should you lose employer-funded private insurance? Simple: simply raise employer-funded Medicare payroll tax cap on higher incomes (from 1.45% to 3.0%).
