Episode details

Earlier this year, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced the Medicare for All Act of 2022. It is obvious that this bill is not going to get passed this year, however, that didn’t stop Ron and Matthew from taking a look at what some of the outcomes of the bill might be. Medicare for All is popular among young progressives and even among some physician and nurses’ groups. '

How would the Medicare for All Act of 2022 affect immigration, the supply of doctors, the quality of hospital care, and how much power would it give the Secretary of Health and Human Services? Ron and Matthew discuss this on this episode of the FLATLINING Podcast.
