Not only do Democrats want to give taxpayer-funded health insurance to illegal immigrants, they’ve also promised to make private health insurance illegal.
So while Democrats like Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg try and pull the wool over the eyes of America with their health care plans, New York Magazine points out, “In truth, the kind of public option that Biden and Buttigieg are campaigning on — one robust enough to make universal health care a reality in the United States — would not allow all Americans to ‘keep their private insurance if they prefer it.’ In fact, their plans would guarantee massive disruptions to private coverage.”
If enacted, Democrats would kick 176 million Americans off of their private health insurance plans while the Associated Press explains “taxes would have to go up significantly as the government takes on trillions of dollars in health care costs now covered by employers and individuals.”
A CNN poll released earlier this year that nearly 60% of Americans oppose taxpayer-funded health insurance coverage for illegal immigrants.
Furthermore, by putting illegal immigrants on Medicare, that would also force seniors to compete with millions of illegal immigrants for care.
Bottom line: Take it from Bernie Sanders: The Democrats’ government takeover of health care would raise taxes on the middle class and eliminate private health insurance. And as Sanders says, “There will be pain.”
