How do Democrats plan to help the 2 million people they intend to put out of a job by passing Single Payer?
The health insurance industry employs about 2.7 million nationwide. Most of them will lose their jobs. How to Democraps plan to help them?
Or is it a case of can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs?

PUT THEM ON WELFARE, THAT WAY THEY ARE GUARANTEED THEIR VOTES

By getting them better jobs. Those who are actually caring for the sick or injured won't lose their jobs. The health care industry jobs that will be eliminated are mostly in billing, insurance, etc., and those workers can be given something more productive to do.

I've yet to see this acknowledged by anyone other than you and the voices inside my own head.

I doubt it will be the Republican solution. “Sucks to be you”, “get a job”. At least they would still have healthcare.

Most of them will not lose their jobs. On the contrary, the quantity of jobs in healthcare would be likely to increase because more people would have access to care under single payer.

They plan on lengthening unemployment and expanding food stamps.
They do not have a plan on how to help them get new jobs and do not care.
But keep in mind that this is just the beginning.
Once they get single payer and it does not save the money they claim it will the next step will be to take over the medical care of the country.
And if Bernie Sanders is elected he will push for a government take over of most of the US economy.

Those people will be employed when the government contracts to process all the new Medicare claims.

We could give all of them a 2-year severance and still save money. I wonder what we did with the switchboard operators once they were no longer needed?

Insurance companies money <<<< your money. The sooner you figure that out, the better off you'll be
