A new government report estimates that government will be paying nearly half the nation’s health care tab within 10 years. That’s even without “Medicare-for-all,” the government-run plan for all Americans that some Democratic presidential contenders are calling for. Driving the increase is traditional Medicare, experiencing a surge in enrollment as aging baby boomers shift out of private coverage. The report comes from nonpartisan experts with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. (AP Photo/Jon Elswick, File)
