Primary Care: Estimating Democratic Candidates’ Health Plans | Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Senator Bernie Sanders released a new set of proposals to offset the cost of his health care plan this week. Based on these new proposals, we have updated our paper – Primary Care: Estimating Democratic Candidates’ Health Plans – which estimates the fiscal impact of plans put forward by candidates Sanders, Biden, Buttigieg, and Warren. Whereas our previous estimates found Senator Sanders’s plan would fall $13.4 trillion short of being paid for, our newest estimates find his plan would fall just under $13 trillion short. The full analysis is available below. We have also updated our Primary Care infographics.
