Former governor of Virginia and potential 2020 Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe threw his full support behind a universal healthcare program throughout the US over the weekend; saying he’d like to take Obamacare “to the next level.”
The longtime Clinton insider was speaking with CNN when he was asked to clarify his position on a potential ‘Medicare for All’ scheme; saying he’d support the initiative should he decide to run for president.
“What about Medicare for all?” asked CNN’s Dana Bash.
“I support Medicare for all,” McAuliffe confirmed. “I support that everybody in this country gets access to quality, affordable health care. Whatever you may want to call it. The system today—I was a big supporter of the ACA. We do need to tweak it take it to the next level. We need to fix it. Am I for health care for all individuals, affordable quality health care? You bet I am.”
