Hey all, quick question that’s come up as a result of being home over the holidays. Many of my family work in the pharmaceutical/health insurance industries. When advocating for Medicare4all their primary counterpoint is that many of them will lose their jobs (private health insurance companies).
Has Sen. Sanders or the campaign addressed this issue directly? Estimates are that the health insurance industry employees somewhere between 500,000-800,000 Americans.
While I don’t think there’s anything I can say to completely address the concerns they rightfully have, if there is any official material I’d like to share it.
Also interested in the discussion here if the campaign or Senator hasn’t addressed this directly.
