Democratic presidential hopeful and former Obama aide Julian Castro doubled-down on his party’s demands for a ‘Medicare for All’ program in the United States; saying the country “needs” to completely overhaul the entire healthcare system.
Castro was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked what his first priority would be should he be elected President of the United States.
“You become president, you’re sworn in, you have a Democratic House and Senate—the first bill, the first big domestic policy legislation you move is?” asked host Chris Hayes.
“Health care,” Castro replied. “I believe that we need Medicare for All.”
