“Medicare Part C For All — A Proposed Hatch-Warren Bill,” by Laurence Kotlikoff, Forbes

“The answer is not replacing Obamacare with a far less generous Trumpcare system that sanctifies cherry picking. It’s not handing Medicaid over to the states and looking the other way. It’s not maintaining price controls for traditional Medicare. And it’s not letting employers move to health insurance in name only. Nor is the answer some other set of patchworks. It’s time to fix the healthcare system from the ground up. Remarkably, the path to such fundamental reform is staring us in the face. It’s Medicare Part C For All.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
I’m not about to endorse any Medicare-for-all scheme, but this one comes from an economist I greatly respect who’s done excellent work on “generational accounting” so it bears reading and watching. More later if the idea starts getting traction.
