Medicare for All is a Big Loser for Democrats

Rep. Tim Ryan: This is a VERY Bad Idea

Not all Democrats battling for their party's 2020 presidential nomination are on board with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All plan, and Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio is aggressively pointing out the policy's flaws.

Ryan says that while he is in favor of a "public option" for health care, adopting a plan that would eliminate people's existing private insurance is not the way to go.

Editor's note: Do I detect a modest amount of sanity coming from a candidate on the left?

"I am not for taking private insurance away," Ryan said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," adding, "We cannot be a party that goes into a general election taking private health insurance away from union members in some of these states that negotiated pretty good health care plans for themselves." Ryan noted that unions may have "sacrificed wages during the negotiations to get a good health care plan."
