my insurance I know, its pretty good, my employer provides it (I do have to pay some) and it works for me. I don't want to give this up for some unknown that may work on paper but may be a total disaster in implementation. Its a risk I don't want to take.
I didn't notice anyone say that you "have to" give up your private insurance. What I got was that the government insurance would cost much less, that you could certainly still have your private insurance if you wanted to, but that it wouldn't be competitive, and would become less and less competitive as more and more people changed to the much lower cost government plan insurance, i.e. much more than 50 percent less. You could even have both if you wanted to.
That would be nice but its not the case. Sanders, Warren and Harris plan for main coverage being provided through the government program. They all raised their hands about getting rid of private insurance.
