1. That's not a very accurate article, the details contradict the strained premise. For example....

 

...they mention Johnson and Johnson and Pfizer.

Johnson and Johnson is up about 15 points (12%) since the beginning of the year and is at it's 2019 high.
Pfizer is down a bit this year, but only 4 points on the year.

So, one is way up, the other is down moderately - these aren't "massive" tumbles.

There are several Medicare for All proposals circulating in Congress, some of which would basically abolish private insurance while others would simply create a public option and leave private plans largely in place. Still, the industry is worried. On Tuesday, UnitedHealth CEO David Wichmann said Medicare for All would “destabilize the nation’s health system.”
