How Medicare for All Would Make America’s Coronavirus Response Worse, with Chris Jacobs
What would America’s response to the coronavirus pandemic look like under a Medicare for All/single payer system? Could we have responded to the crisis faster? Would we have the health care capacity (doctors, hospitals, equipment) to meet the demands of patients? How does our response compare to other countries which do have single payer systems?
Chris Jacobs, author of “The Case Against Single Payer,” returns to the podcast to examine the Democrats' claims that our country would be better off with Medicare for All, or even Joe Biden’s expanded buy-in version, during the COVID-19 crisis.
