Koch-Funded Hit Piece Backfires: Shows Medicare for All Would Save 'Whopping $2 Trillion' Over Ten Years While Covering Everybody

"If every major country on Earth can guarantee healthcare to all, and achieve better health outcomes, while spending substantially less per capita than we do, it is absurd for anyone to suggest that the United States cannot do the same."

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) speaks during a health care rally at the 2017 Convention of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee on September 22, 2017 in San Francisco, California.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) speaks during a health care rally at the 2017 Convention of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee on September 22, 2017 in San Francisco, California.

If the billionaire Koch brothers really want to undermine the economic case for Medicare for All, they have a funny way of showing it.

Judging by the headlines alone, it would appear that the newly published study projecting that Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) widely popular Medicare for All plan would cost $32.6 trillion over the next decade was conducted by an official, neutral body seeking the facts, not pushing an agenda.

"Even if you take the report's headline figures at face value, the picture it paints is that of an enormous bargain. We get to insure every single person in the country...and save everyone from the hell of constantly changing health insurance all while saving money." 
—Matt Bruenig, People's Policy Project
Read a bit further, though, and you'll discover that the analysis—released Monday morning—was produced by the George Mason University-based Mercatus Center, which has received millions of dollars in funding from the right-wing billionaires Charles and David Koch, who have previously expressed support for abolishing Medicare and Medicaid entirely.

"This grossly misleading and biased report is the Koch brothers' response to the growing support in our country for a 'Medicare for All' program," Sanders said in response to the study, which was penned by Charles Blahous, who previously worked as a senior economic adviser to former President George W. Bush.

But as Matt Bruenig of the People's Policy Project notes—though absent or buried in much of the initial reportingeven the Koch brothers' numbers, which Sanders says are vastly inflated, demonstrate that the "U.S. could insure 30 million more Americans and virtually eliminate out-of-pocket healthcare expenses" while saving "a whopping $2 trillion" in the process.*

"At first glance, it is strange that the Mercatus center...would publish a report this positive about Medicare for All," writes Bruenig.

"The claim that 'even the Koch organizations say it will save money while covering everyone' provides a useful bit of rhetoric for proponents of the policy," he adds. "But the real game here for Mercatus is to bury the money-saving finding in the report's tables while headlining the incomprehensibly large $32.6 trillion number in order to trick dim reporters into splashing that number everywhere and freaking out."

This "strategy," Bruenig notes, was quite successful.

While most outlets don't even mention the buried cost-saving conclusion of the Mercatus report, Axios—whose headline reads "Bernie's 'Medicare for All' predicted to cost nearly $33 trillion"—includes this line at the very bottom of its piece, in the "worth noting" section: "All told, 'Medicare for All' would actually slightly reduce the total amount we pay for health care."

"Even if you take the report's headline figures at face value, the picture it paints is that of an enormous bargain," Bruenig concludes. "We get to insure every single person in the country, virtually eliminate cost-sharing, and save everyone from the hell of constantly changing health insurance all while saving money. You would have to be a fool to pass that offer up."

In 2016, the United States spent $3.4 trillion on healthcare; projected over ten years—and assuming costs don't rise, as they're expected to—that's $34 trillion. By 2025, the current for-profit healthcare system is expected to cost a staggering $5.5 trillion per year.

Additionally, America spends far more on healthcare per capita than other industrialized nations—most of which have some form of government-funded universal healthcare—and achieves worse outcomes.

These soaring costs are a major reason most Americans—and even a growing number of Republicans—now support a Medicare for All-type system, according to recent surveys.

As Common Dreams reported, Medicare for All is also gaining steam on Capitol Hill, with more than 70 House Democrats joining the newly formed Medicare for All Caucus, which will devote significant energy and resources to studying what it would take to implement a single-payer system in the U.S. and guarantee healthcare to all Americans as a right.

As Sanders said Monday in response to the Mercatus study, "If every major country on Earth can guarantee healthcare to all, and achieve better health outcomes, while spending substantially less per capita than we do, it is absurd for anyone to suggest that the United States cannot do the same."

*CorrectionThis post, based largely on the analysis of Matt Bruenig at the People's Policy Project, initially stated that savings from Medicare for All would be $303 billion over ten years. Bruenig subsequently changed this number due to a miscalculation. The correct number is actually $2 trillion.

NONSENSE. I AM a TYPE two diabetic. Had a 7.2 A1C AND a daily reading @ 175. Since eliminating carbs ( and we are speaking of the high glycemic starchy kind like bread, potatoes, rice, cake, pies cookies anything with whie flour or any sugar and fruits) , have added a daily 30mins at least in walking to burn sugars and my A1C has come down to 5.5 AND my daily readings are now regularly in the 90s. No medications, no government involved. What WAS involved is the desrie NOT to have diabetes which , over time causes damage to the rest of the body if unchecked. It's like you telling someone that smokes that they have lung cancer. At THAT point they are faced with a choice: eliminate the smoking immediately OR continue to feed the lung cancer. EACH one of us has a choice, BUT if one chooses to continue to engage in DESTRUCTIVE behavior that demages the body, then that CHOICE made shouldn't be funded by everyone else paying directly or indirectly for it.

I do NOT ask or require ANYONE else to fund the choices I make that are debilitating or destructive to myself, and as an adult I should live with the consequences of the bad decisions I make and not make others "bale me out"

Correct skwanderer.  Someone that young with diabetes most likely is Type I.  Type I diabetics bodies do not make insulin.  They must take insulin for their entire lives.  Unlike Type II diabetics, there is no dietary regimen that could possibly and completely eliminate a Type I's need to take insulin.

THAT is a fair distinction. I addressed that it was said the person was type II. Still, in all, shouldn't a person with more severe symptoms like a type I diabetic be more mindful of what he or she ingests as it still triggers a response. Granted they might need insulin ANYWAY but if they reduced the response then they might also reduce the amount of insulin needed over time.

Indeed, skwanderer could have more clearly demarcated his statements.  In the first he's describing the person as NOT having "late onset partly caused by diet" diabetes, i.e. Type II.  He then, without a clear break, goes on to describe medication and diet for someone with type II.

That you were confused by that, wale, doesn't alter the fact that it was not said that the person had Type II.

OK, confusion on my part as I mixed my experience into that. it has been shown that following the diet modifications could drastically reduce the amount of insulin needed, thereby stretching out how much is needed. Type I does require insulin since they don't produce it And usually those in childhood typically are afflicted.

Confronting the question most commonly asked of those who support replacing America's uniquely inefficient and immoral for-profit healthcare system with Medicare for All—"How do we pay for it?"—a new paper released Friday by researchers at the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) shows that covering the costs of a single payer system would actually be the simple part, given that it would cost significantly less than the status quo.

EACH individual has to take those steps to see how it affects THEM individually. Injecting insulin DOES reduce sugars in the system BUT each person, Type I OR Type II can assist in the reduction of need for insulin, whether or not the need is eliminated. ALL cases benefit from making dietary choices that eliminate carbs and sugars from the diet. it's like having a wild fire tht, in some cases, cannot be put out BUT by taking measures, at least can be drastically reduced to a contained level.

No I am NOT saying that. YOU are saying that in your continual snit fits. Type I diabetics do NOT produce insulin as we know and need insulin. IF htey eat that which triggers diabetic responses, CARBS and SUGARS, then they require MORE insulin. IF they eliminate carbs and sugars from their diets, they WILL register a drop in their sugar levels BUT as to a SPECIFIC number of the drop  which would lower the insulin requirement dosage, each individual will have to measure their OWN sugars to see what their own requirements are.

But, wale, you presumed that they, Type I diabetics, could be "drastically reduced, with absolutely no evidence or logical, reasonable argument backing that.  So, here's the point.  Type I diabetics have had the condition from childhood.  The logical presumption is that they, as adults, are already eating diet with minimal carbs and sugars and there is little to nothing more that they can do on that front that will have any real effect on the amount of insulin they require.  Even at that, their insulin is still priced out of their reach.

THAT is YOUR assumption that Type I diabetics have already minimized their consumption of carbs and sugars. Some have and some have not because they have insulin to inject, which they ought to have available to them since their bodies cannot manufacture it; however, for those who do NOT watch their intake of carbs and sugars, then doing so and limiting or eliminating them would help BEFORE they bgin to even calculate how much insulin they would need on that particular day and forward. Those who begin to reduce their comsumption of said items WILL reduce their daily need, even if they don't or can't get off the need for insulin ( which Type I diabetics cannot eliminate the need for). With regard to price, their are many resources out there to help find better ways of financing the insulin, but some research and outreach has to be done. Diet alone, I believe as you said, won't do it completely, BUT would be a positive step all around.

Your assumption, wale, is the he/they didn't/don't address their Type I diabetes with diet.  And, choices of places to find financing for their insulin is not an answer to the problem of blatant price gouging.
