"Extending Medicare’s coverage to everyone will only make the program stronger, more successful, and more popular. The Medicare for All Act of 2017 improves benefits for both current and future Medicare beneficiaries. And that is likely just the start of improvements, if Medicare for All becomes law. With all of us covered by the same group insurance plan, we will have enormous leverage. And, since that insurance plan — Medicare — is sponsored by the federal government, we will have direct recourse at the ballot box if our collective interests are not well served."
