Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted during a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday that there were socialists in the Democratic Party but claimed that socialism was not the prevailing view of the party. She also criticized fellow Democrats for their Medicare for All proposal.
CBS News’ Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi why she preferred Obamacare over Medicare for All, a proposal that several Democratic presidential hopefuls have been pushing.
“Well, Affordable Care Act is better than Medicare, there’s no question about that. The Affordable Care Act benefits are better. Medicare doesn’t have a catastrophic plan. So if you want Medicare for All, you’re going to have to change Medicare, and let’s take a look at that,” Pelosi said.
Stahl pointed out to Pelosi that by pushing for Medicare for All, it’s allowing President Trump to paint the Democratic Party as a bunch of socialists.
“Do you know that when Medicare was done by the Congress at the time, under Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan said Medicare will lead us to a socialist dictatorship,” Pelosi said. “This is an ongoing theme of the Republicans. However, I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”
