Employers Statement on House Rules Medicare for All Hearing

The Partnership for Employer-Sponsored Coverage issued a statement for the April 30 hearing in the House Rules Committee on the Medicare for All Act of 2019. An excerpt from the statement is below and the full statement can be read HERE.

The Partnership for Employer-Sponsored Coverage opposes Medicare for All. Dismantling our nation’s private sector employment-based health system which provides coverage for the largest percentage of the population would create utter chaos and massive disruptions to the care system for all Americans. We urge Congress to devote its attention and resources toward issues to improve our current health care system such as increasing market competition, providing more coverage choices and access to providers for all Americans, and addressing systematic cost drivers and wasteful spending.
