House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came out against the much-touted “Medicare-for-all” proposal from 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and said the party’s candidates should seek to emulate ObamaCare, in order to achieve universal health coverage.
Pelosi appeared on CNBC’s “Mad Money” Tuesday and was asked by host Jim Cramer what direction the party should take with regard to spending and health care.
“We think the right path is the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi replied. “And that is a path to healthcare for all Americans.”
“I believe that the path… to healthcare for all is a path that is following the lead of the Affordable Care Act,” she added.
“That I think, is the path we should go on. I think that what is being put forth — I said if that’s what you believe, God bless you. But know what it entails, and what that debate would be like.”
