New Analysis Confirms Medicare For All Saves Money


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Matt Bruenig about how Medicare for all saves money.

A little-noticed financial analysis of a Single-Payer system by the Congressional Budget Office concluded that transitioning to a government run system would significantly reduce healthcare spending in the nation.

Coming at a time when the U.S.’s medical infrastructure is under severe strain, the analysis is important and considered the most exhaustive of recent studies on the subject.



Matt Bruenig, President of People’s Policy Project. He previously worked as a lawyer at the National Labor Relations Board and as a policy analyst at the Demos Think Tank.
