Tapper is being disingenuous here... $32T for Medicare for All type program

Is expenditure only, and doesn’t recognize overall savings. Granted, not AOC’s finest moment in the spotlight, but Tapper is playing for the gotcha in 120 seconds and not attempting to be even remotely truthful in the trade offs of shifting the cost of medical coverage from the private sector to government. In terms of overall health care spending in the United States over the same period experts are actually projecting a slight reduction in costs.
