Rep. Pramila Jayapal publicly admitted this week that her ‘Medicare for All’ proposal would result in the elimination of more than one million jobs across America; saying the government would have to help those workers “transition” to other industries.
Jayapal was speaking at a town hall event at American University when she was asked how workers in the private insurance industry would survive under the new plan.
“There are a lot of people who work in the private insurance industry,” Jayapal said. “We have thought carefully about how we’d take care of those folks because we think those people are very important.”
“There’s about a million people that we think would be displaced if ‘Medicare for All’ happens. We have set aside one percent a year of the total cost of the bill for five years to take care of a transition for employees in the private insurance sector,” she added.
