The stance Chuck Schumer took on Medicare for All during his appearance on MSNBC's Meet the Press is the reason many do not have faith in the Establishment Democrats. Chuck Todd did a great job in exposing his double talk on healthcare.
"Here's what Adam Green, founder of Progressive Change Campaign Committee writes," Chuck Todd said. "He says, 'Democrats need to put a bright north star in the sky for 2020 voters, showing what Democrats would do with more power and making clear that we're moving toward Medicare for all, as a big part of a 2020 electoral strategy. It seems pretty clear that the presidential nominee, whoever it is, will support Medicare for all.' Do you think it's time for Democrats to push this?"
"Look, Democrats are for universal access to health care, from one end of the party to the other. We want more people covered, everyone covered," Senator Schumer said. "We want better health care at a lower cost. People have different views as to how to get there. Many are for Medicare for all. Some are for Medicare buy-in. Some are Medicare over 55. Some are Medicaid buy-in. Some are a public option. We're going to have to do a lot more on health care. It will be a major issue in 2020. And I believe Democrats will coalesce around the best way to get the best health care for the most people."
We must remember that most Americans including a majority of Republicans support Single-payer Medicare for All. Notice he used the diverse opinions suggested by politicians, the sole purpose of keeping insurance companies alive. It is a fraud. Having any answer with insurance companies in the mix is nothing but added expenses and cost to healthcare.
Todd, on this round, did a good job that caused Senator Schumer to expose himself.
"I know you're very, I know you’re very careful about putting your view here, now that you're the leader of your, of the Senate conference there," Todd said. "Are you going to support Medicare for all, Senator Schumer?"
Schumer's double talk would become clearer.
"Look, as I said, there are lots of different routes," Schumer said. "I'm going to support a plan that can pass and that can provide the best, cheapest health care for all Americans."
