House Speaker Paul Ryan is condemning the notion of ‘Medicare for All’ and is also speaking out against socialism.
In a video released Monday, Ryan suggested adopting ‘Medicare for All’ would destroy and obliterate the private and employer sponsored health care systems.
He also said ‘Medicare for All’ would hasten the bankruptcy of Medicare, and pointed out socialism is long on promises and extremely short on delivering on them.
Ryan outlined the damage ‘Medicare for All’ could cause and warned about the harm of socialism.
