Buttigieg: ‘Meaning’ of Medicare for all has changed; ‘good chance’ Facebook, other tech companies broken up if he becomes president

Buttigieg’s idea is that if his plan is as attractive as he hopes it will be, eventually everyone will end up on Medicare. The plan also leaves room for those who like their existing plans, such as the members of the Culinary Union here in Nevada, to keep them if the coverage is better.

“I think the best approach is to make this Medicare option available to everybody, but not command everybody to adopt it, especially I’m thinking of folks like the Culinary workers right here in Nevada,” Buttigieg said. “There are a lot of labor union members who have negotiated very good health plans that are part of their compensation, and I don’t think they want to be forced into a plan they don’t know.”
