If you’re looking for work, this is the best job market in fifty years. The economy is soaring.
But Democrats running for president are pitching plans that will destroy millions of jobs, doubling the number of people out of work.
Consider Medicare for All. It will wipe out a staggering 2.5 million health insurance and healthcare jobs nationwide, causing the number of unemployed people in this country to jump by almost half.
New research by Stanford University doctors in the Journal of the American Medical Associationshows that Medicare for All will cause hospitals to lose a whopping $151 billion in payments the first year. Hospitals will be forced to eliminate as many as 1.5 million jobs overnight. Scary news for the 385,000 hospital workers here in New York state.
Meanwhile, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D. Wash.), who’s sponsoring Medicare for All legislation in the House, admits it will cause 1 million insurance employees to get canned. She cavalierly suggests they can retire or get job re-training. Tell heartless Jayapal to do that herself.
