Head of CMS says Medicare for all is 'scary'

CMS Administrator Seema Verma further waded into the debate over Medicare for all on Halloween when she tweeted an image of a "Medicare for all" T-shirt with the comment that it's the “scariest Halloween costume" of the year.

As CMS administrator, Verma is in charge of running Medicare and Medicaid, which provide healthcare coverage to millions of Americans.

Verma has previously stated her opposition for Medicare for all as the idea has picked up steam among Democrats.

She doubled down on the stance later in the day, tweeting, “Medicare for All isn’t a joke… it’s government controlled healthcare that will strip choice away from millions. It’s a bad idea. And it IS scary.”
