- PETE STANCE ON HEALTHCARE***
Pete supports Medicare-for-all, but does not agree with Sanders or Warren on eliminating the Private Plan completely in 4 years. Instead, Pete offer a version of Medicare as a public option, which he dubs as Medicare for all Who Want It (M4AWWI)
In this plan, Medicare will be made available to all as a public option and will create a less disruptive “glide path” to Medicare for all.
- HOW PETE WOULD PAY FOR IT***
Pete plan only cost 1.5 Trillions Dollar, which is less than Medicare-for-all which would cost 3 Trillion Dollars. His plan would be paid for by reverting Trump tax break, which made ~1.4 Trillions in revenue.
