Viability of Improved Medicare For All

Robert Pollin, a professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) discusses the findings of the rigorous, peer reviewed Economic Analysis of Medicare for All report released at the Sanders Institute Gathering. The goals of improved Medicare for All are to significantly improve health care outcomes for everyone living in the United States while also establishing effective cost controls throughout the health care system. The authors conclude that these two purposes are both achievable. Improved Medicare for All could reduce total health care spending in the U.S. by nearly 10 percent while creating stable access to good care for all U.S. residents.
