Pelosi suggested instead to defend Obamacare, noting it has more broad popularity and doesn’t scare off moderates the way universal health care does.
“Protect the Affordable Care Act — I think that’s the path to healthcare for all Americans. Medicare For All has its complications,” Pelosi said, adding that “the Affordable Care Act is a better benefit than Medicare.”
Pelosi has warned her caucus in the past not to get too excited over the Green New Deal, and has downplayed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (N.Y.) influence within the Democratic Party.
But now the election is only a year away, and to Pelosi’s chagrin, Democrats are showing no signs of slowing in their quest for socialism in America.
