Claire McCaskill Says Medicare for All Will Make ObamaCare ‘Look Like a Very Light Touch’
MCCASKILL: "Right, there’s no question. I mean, we’re going to hear a lot about socialism. So I think whoever is our nominee, better hit it head to head and I hope that everyone realizes that Medicare for All sounds wonderful until you explain to people that means they have to give up their insurance that they love at their workplace and get whatever insurance the government says they can have. Now, that’s going to feel — that’s going to make ObamaCare look like a very light touch, because all ObamaCare said is you know, we need you to buy insurance and you know, you must buy insurance. I shouldn’t say we need you because it was a mandate, you had to buy it. And that was why it was so unpopular, was a government mandate. That’s what made it so unpopular in many, many states in this country."
