Democrats clash over eliminating private health insurance at first debate



we're gonna turn to the issue of healthcare right now and really try to understand whether may or may not be daylight between you many people watching at home have health insurance coverage through their employer who here would abolish their private health insurance in favor of a government-run plan just to show hands start out with all right well senator Klobuchar let me put the question to you you're one of the Democrats who wants to keep private insurance in addition to a government health care plan why is an incremental approach in your view better than a sweeping overall I think it's a bold approach it's something that Barack Obama wanted to do when we were working on the Affordable Care Act and that is a public option I am just simply concerned about kicking half of America off of their health insurance in four years which is exactly what this bill says so let me go on beyond that there is a much bigger issue in addition to that and that is pharmaceuticals the president literally went on TV on Fox and said that people's heads would spin when they see how much he would bring down pharmaceutical prices instead 2500 drugs have gone up in double digits since he came into office instead he gave a hundred billion dollars in giveaways to the pharma companies for the rest of us for the rest of America that's what we call it home all foam and no beer we got nothing out of it and so my proposal is to do something about Pharma to take them on to allow negotiation under Medicare to bring in less expensive drugs from other countries and Pharma thinks they on Washington well they don't own their time as a thank you [Applause] you you

  1. They will do no such thing. Once in orifice they will buddy up to the Pharma corporations that gave them money to get elected. Then the taxpayers will be handing over truckloads of cash for drugs but government officials will decide who gets what. No thanks.
