BAIER: “Now 15 years ago you called yourself a liberal on health care. You were for a single payer system, a Canadian style system. Why were you for that then and why aren’t you for it now?”
TRUMP: “First of all I’d like to go back to one — in July of 2004 I came out strongly against the war with Iraq. Because it was going to destabilize the Middle East. I’m the only one on the stage that knew that and had the vision to say it and that’s exactly what happened. So I just want to say. As far as single payer, it works in Canada, works incredibly well in Scotland. Could have worked in a different age, which is the age you’re talking about here. What I would like to see is a private system without the artificial lines around every state. I have a big company with thousands and thousands of employees and if I’m negotiating in New York or New Jersey or California, I have like one bidder. Nobody can bid. You know why? The insurance companies are making a fortune because they have control of the politicians. Of course with the exception of the politicians on the stage. But they have total control of the politicians. They’re making a fortune. Gid red of the artificial lines and you will have yourself great plans. Then we have to take care of the people that can’t take care of themselves andly do that in a different session.
>> News flash, the Republican party has been fighting against a single payer system for a decade. I think you’re on the wrong side of this if you’re still arguing —
>> I don’t think you heard me. You’re having a hard time tonight.”
