The House Minority Democratic Leader Nanacy Pelosi isn’t running for President…..
So she doesn’t have to pass a litmus test on this….
She isn’t doing Sanders dance that she knows won’t fly….She will have to work to do fixes to the existing Affordable Healthcare program also known as Obamacare….
She has carefully walked around Trump’s basic idea….
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declined to back a single-payer health care bill drafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) , saying she is instead focused on efforts to shield Obamacare from Republican attempts to rescind it.
“Right now, I’m protecting the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi told a small group of reporters in her Capitol office Tuesday. “None of these other things … can really prevail unless we have the Affordable Care Act.”
The House’s top Democrat said she would review the legislation, which Sanders is rolling out to much fanfare on Wednesday.
The single-payer bill has quickly attracted support from a flock of Democratic senators in the mix for the 2020 presidential race, suggesting that it is rapidly becoming a litmus test among the liberal grass roots….
