Though he has sketched out the “Medicare for All” program to move us toward a Single Payer health system, the details he has shown so far prompted the Mercatus Center at George Mason University to claim that it would cost $32.6 trillion over ten years…and, yes, that would involve higher taxes. And that’s just the initial estimate.
He’s got it all figured out, but what figures will he be using?
