Presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) said on Friday that eliminating private health insurance is an “urgent goal.”
Appearing on the podcast “Lovett or Leave It,” Gillibrand was asked if eliminating private insurance should be a goal–even an urgent one–for the Democratic Party.
The article goes on to state the following:
“One of the most recent debates we’ve had recently is what happens to private insurance. Should ending private insurance, as we know it, be a Democratic goal? And do you think it’s an urgent goal?” asked podcast host Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
“Oh yeah, it is a goal. An urgent goal,” Gillibrand responded. “But let me explain. I ran on ‘Medicare for all’ in 2006 in my upstate New York two-to-one Republican district. And the reason I ran on that message was because I listened first. I traveled around the district asked people ‘what’s on your mind, what’s your worry,’ and they overwhelmingly said ‘I’m worried about access to health care.”
Gillibrand comes out as supporting taking away private insurance away from Americans: “It’s an urgent goal.”

.@SenGillibrand is making abolishing your private healthcare an “urgent” priority. After screwing up Obamacare so badly, the last thing we need is a total government takeover that will mean huge tax increases on middle class and worse care. https://t.co/nttcW1oykH
