Wyoming Republican Senator John Barrasso says that it would be impossible to implement the “Medicare for All” without raising taxes on the middle class.

Democrats’ “Medicare for All” plan would be more revenue than generated by the taxation of high incomes and companies, a study published closed on Tuesday.

The Committee for a Responsible Federal budget, a non-partisan, non-profit, is trying to estimate the revenue created by the elimination of several deductions, the doubling of the corporate income tax rate to 42 percent (it was 35 percent before President Trump’s tax cut), the raising of taxes on financial transactions and the increase in the first two individual tax rates on income up to 70 percent.

It was found that only 40 percent of the 10-year cost of “Medicare for All” — estimated at $30 trillion — with the approximately $11 trillion in increased revenue. If the next President is based only on income taxes to increase, it would be “impossible” to Finance the plan, even if the government has 100 per cent of the rich income.

The authors noted that their estimates were “very rough” and “didn ‘ T account for the many interactions and economic feedback.”


The study came as several 2020 Democrats proposed a single-payer program like “Medicare for All.” At the fourth Democratic debate in October, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was pressed on their continuous refusal, to explain whether your plan reductions would require middle-class tax.


“Regardless of the General impact of Medicare-for-All, it is clear that taxes will have to rise for the middle class to pay for it,” the study read.

While Warren was not clear about taxes, which it has committed not to sign legislation that increase the costs for the middle class, while the decrease for the rich. This is probably a reference to a net decline, which would, allegedly, as a result of a reduction in the cost of health care in a larger amount than the increase in taxes.

Tuesday-study acknowledged that the median would fall in costs is likely, although it is unclear whether a total of the cost increase or decrease.


“There is simply not enough available income of better-paid and company to cover the full cost of the elimination of premiums, ends all of the cost-sharing, and the extension of insurance protection for all Americans and for (almost) all health services” to read the study. “But in return, the lack of premiums and cost-sharing after could Finance a net gain or loss for individuals depending on how much you pay, how much you make currently, and how the ultimate financing is structured.”

While it remains unclear how Warren the necessary revenue, they promised on Sunday to release a plan with more details will raise.
