Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and progressive Democrats have defended their push for “Medicare for All” in recent days with an unlikely aid: A study from a free-market think tank that concludes, in their reading, that the reform would save $2 trillion in healthcare costs.
But the study’s author said that the advocates are glossing over key details in the findings: namely that it doesn’t say that.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Some are people under the misimpression that the study found that healthcare spending nationally would go down or rise more slowly if we enacted Medicare for All,” Charles Blahous, the author of the study published last month by the libertarian Mercatus Center at George Mason University, told the Washington Examiner. “The study absolutely did not say that. It says the opposite.”
The study came out in July, as Medicare for All and single payer grew in importance in Democratic primary races.
