Hillary Clinton is sniping from the sidelines, and her target list now includes Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The losing 2016 presidential candidate claimed this week that the Massachusetts senator’s “Medicare for all” plan is unrealistic.
“The smarter approach is to build on what we have,” Clinton said this week during the DealBook conference in New York. “A public option is something I’ve been in favor of for a very long time. I don’t believe we should be in the midst of a big disruption while we are trying to get to 100% coverage and deal with costs.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Affordable Care Act took us to 90% of coverage — the highest we had ever gotten in our country after many, many efforts including one I was involved in more than 25 years ago,” Clinton said. “We have a 10% gap to fill, and we have a lot of learning to do about the best way not only to fill the gap, but then to drive down costs as much as it is possible without undermining quality advancements.”
