College Students Demand ‘Medicare For All’ Until They Learn The True Cost
Campus Reform asked college students about 'Medicare for All' who were all in favor of Bernie Sanders' radical plan until they learned the actual costs.
College students live in an academic bubble where liberalism thrives. They are insulated from the real world and often forced to swallow and repeat liberal talking points from their professors. It’s no wonder that this demographic supports ‘Medicare for All’. They aren’t given the context to understand how it would affect Americans both in cost and in loss of choices. When they are presented with this reality, they change their minds very fast!
The Liberal College Bubble
Campus Reform sent Cabot Phillips to George Washington University. The Washington, DC college boasts about its body of top notch students but this video highlights how little these students knew about the actual impacts of ‘Medicare for All’.
Of course, nothing is actually free. The bills have to be paid.
But, when their college professors and leftwing politicians are promoting universal healthcare to them, they obviously aren’t teaching about all the implications.
In just a matter of minutes of learning the truth, these students turn their backs on this radical liberal utopian dream.
The Cost of ‘Medicare For All’
Many Americans who work in the real world understand that everything has a cost.
Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare for All’ plan not only has a huge bill that will force all of us to pay but it also limits our healthcare options. But also means that the government would be in charge of all of our healthcare.

Given the government’s track record with ruining things, this is alarming!
Dismal applause for Pete Buttigieg at the Teamsters forum when he brings up Medicare for All those who want it + College for Some.

Students React To True Cost Of ‘Medicare For All’
From Campus Reform:
“I do support Medicare for all,” one student said, while others added, “I think every American deserves healthcare,” and “I do support that. It’s an important form of universal healthcare.” Yet another student said, “I don’t think there’s anything you could tell me that would make me view it unfavorably.”
While strong at first, their support began to waver once Phillips walked them through the basic elements of the plan.
When told Medicare For All would remove more than 100 million Americans from their private plans, students were shocked.
“I mean they shouldn’t be kicked off, that doesn’t seem fair,” one said, while another stated simply, “the government can’t force people to have healthcare with them…”
One student said “those who are able to get private healthcare shouldn’t have to be removed from their current plan…”
When it came to the $32 trillion price tag and subsequent tax increases, students were deterred further.
“You have to pay for it? You still have to pay for it? I don’t support that…” one said, before another admitted, “If I were financially on my own I wouldn’t support that.”
Watching the video below might give you some hope for the next generation. Perhaps when these students leave the college bubble, they will understand that leftwing policies don’t work.
