Democrats aren't telling the whole Medicare story

Medicare for all is being pushed by some of the Democrats running for the presidential nomination. I question whether they are telling the whole story. It sounds like there is a real possibility that insurance companies would be out of business. That leaves us no way to supplement the 80 percent coverage Medicare now allows. No one pushing this appears to have considered this, or they haven’t bothered to bring it up.

The older people get, the more health problems can crop up, and 80 percent coverage just doesn’t cut it.

Thanks, but no thanks, Bernie.
