How would Medicare for All affect businesses (big and small)?

A lot of the messaging on Medicare for All is about how much it will save the consumers. What I haven't heard much about is how it affects business. Would businesses pay into Medicare for All the way they do currently with private insurers? I'm curious what the economic impact would be on business especially small businesses that struggle to provide insurance. If Medicare for All would save them money, this seems like something that should be talked about more often.

Article here.

The event was hosted by a group called Center Forward and featured a lecture from industry lobbyists leading the charge on undermining progressive health care proposals. Center Forward was originally known as the Blue Dog Research Forum, a think tank affiliated with the conservative Blue Dog Coalition of House Democrats; the coalition has pressed the caucus to oppose social welfare spending, taxes on the wealthy, and regulations on business. … Several aides to Democratic leadership filed disclosures showing that they received paid travel to attend the Center Forward retreat, including chiefs of staff to Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. The retreat included chiefs of staff to leading centrist Democrats, including Reps. Kurt Schrader D-Ore.; David Trone, D-Md.; Dan Lipinski, D-Ill.; and Xochitl Torres Small, D-N.M. Officials from the Blue Dogs, Problem Solvers Caucus, and the New Democrats were also in attendance.

Medicare For All is Essential But Only The First Step

A VAST majority of current diseases are the result of lifestyle, very importantly animal-based diets versus whole food plant based. The animal-based industry is also responsible for environmental damage and immense suffering in other species.

I don't know if there are any politicians such as Bernie and AOC who might start taking this on.

I wonder if Bernie and his advisors have privately considered this and realized it's beyond what they can politically realistically address at this time. Or if it's not on their "radar". Would be interesting to know.

(And the above is only one of many such issues related to healthcare and collectively starting to "own" how we interact with our health care providers and care for ourselves.)

It’s always so insane to hear American medical stories from this side of the Atlantic. Patients not being able to get the care they want or need because an insurance company refuses. Absolutely insane to me, boggles the mind

How to respond to someone who says that Medicare For All is “nationalizing the insurance industry”?

This seems wrong to me. That's not what it is at all.

And on top of that, it's coming out of the mouth of a Democrat FFS. It seems like it's out of the GOP playbook to conflate Democratic Socialism with Communism.

Opinion | Bernie Sanders: Medicare For All’s Moment Is Here. Don’t Back Down.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Ten years later, our Medicare for All bill has widespread support in the House and Senate, and polls show Medicare for All is supported by a majority of Americans, including a majority of Republicans.

As the House this week held historic hearings about Medicare for All, we must remember that this transformation did not happen by accident. It happened because Americans from all walks of life understand that we have a dysfunctional health care system designed to make huge profits for the drug companies and the insurance companies, while tens of millions remain uninsured or underinsured and we pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs.
