This got more than just my attention:

"470 Delegates Pledge to Vote Against Any Democrat Platform Without Medicare for All" per The Epoch Times.
According to the "LEFT CAUCUS" nearly 470 have signed pledges so far.

If everyone is on Medicare, who is paying for it?

A report is already out on this same site, that "taxing the rich" will NOT be enough to support medicare for all! The Dem's really have NO IDEA how it will be paid for, they just WANT it! Everybody else and the US Taxpayer be dammed!

This is what you get when you elect idiots to represent you!

Since half of population pays no income tax, does that tell you anything about how much this will cost each of us. Of course the SS tax will be deducted from every income earner's check. Also, there are many other expenses that will have to be paid from tax revenue. What it boils down to is that the left doesn't bother to worry about paying for it, they will just keep raising taxes until the average tax bracket is 60% or 80% or until the economy collapses, whichever comes first. They feel the government can spend our money more wisely than we can.

My Medicare premium is higher than my Wife's work sponsored health insurance, so I'm guessing the answer is "the folks on Medicare". That being said, Medicare for all is a fools choice. This has got to be the most badly managed program in history.

BTW, Medicare is not the same as Medicaid - Medicare is insurance, Medicaid is welfare.
