“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unveiled Wednesday a new version of his plan to give everybody government-run health insurance, potentially opening a new chapter in the ongoing debate over how to make health care in the U.S. more affordable and available.

The plan calls for an overhaul of American health insurance with a souped-up, more generous version of Medicare replacing nearly all private health insurance ― and government exerting far more control over the cost of medical care. It would arguably be the most ambitious social welfare initiative in U.S. history, but Sanders told HuffPost in an interview Tuesday that he believes America is ready for it.

“The American people are catching on to where the Republicans are coming from, they see the limitations of the Affordable Care Act and they’re looking at the alternatives,” Sanders said. “And this is a rational alternative.”

Sanders has been waging a frequently lonely crusade for this kind of universal health care since the early 1990s, when he first came to Congress. In 2013, when he introduced a previous iteration of the bill, he had no support from his colleagues. But in a clear sign of the idea’s increasing popularity, as well as Sanders’ influence within progressive politics, 16 Democratic senators are co-sponsoring the bill.”

    It needs to be 4% more in Medicare taxes. Which both employer and employees pay.This way shady employers like Wal-Mart and other retailers who don't pay for benefits for all of their employees are now contributing for health benefits that they weren't before.

    Employers who were already paying for health care benefits will save on the removal of healthcare group plans they had to pay for and their employees had to pay out of their paycheck every pay period for coverage they still have to pay a deductible on when receiving care.

    In the end only the profiteers of the broken system will lose money. Healthcare is still funded, employers save money on healthcare group plans and pay less to employ people with no need to force people into part time employment to avoid paying benefits and employees have more money in their pocket each paycheck and no longer have to fear about going bankrupt over basic healthcare needs.
