Team Bernie disputes report about socialist utopia price tag (and there's a HILARIOUS catch)

An analysis has been done on Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for all” proposal, aka “single-payer” health insurance. However, it looks like that single-payer would drown in red ink before getting very far:

Hey, you can’t make a utopia omelet without breaking a few trillion eggs.

Great question! Where will they get the money? Even though Team Bernie has disputed the report’s conclusion, they actually haven’t looked into it themselves (or have and don’t want anybody to know what it’ll really cost):

Well isn’t this special:

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for all” plan would increase government health care spending by $32.6 trillion over 10 years, according to a study by a university-based libertarian policy center.
[…]
Responding to the study, Sanders took aim at the Mercatus Center, which receives funding from the conservative Koch brothers. Koch Industries CEO Charles Koch is on the center’s board.
[…]
Sanders’ office has not done a cost analysis, a spokesman said. However, the Mercatus estimates are within the range of other cost projections for Sanders’ 2016 plan.

So they’re disputing a cost analysis of their proposal they haven’t analyzed?

Bingo.

And it’s no wonder people like Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez aren’t eager to delve into the details:

Maybe the Dems should run on doubling everybody’s taxes. That should help the “blue wave”!

However…

Fact check: TRUE.
