Sen. Warren: I've Actually Never Met Anybody Who Likes Their Health Insurance Company


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) makes her case for Medicare For All at the third Democratic presidential debate hosted by ABC News on Thursday.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, ABC NEWS: OK, now I want everybody to keep to the time, but you did invoke both senators. I have to get responses from them...

FMR. VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Sure, no, that's good.

STEPHANOPOULOS: ... and then we will broaden it out.

Senator Warren, you go first.

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA): So, let's be clear, I've actually never met anybody who likes their health insurance company.


I've met people who like their doctors. I've met people who like their nurses. I've met people who like their pharmacists. I've met people who like their physical therapists. What they want is access to health care. And we just need to be clear about what Medicare for All is all about.

Instead of paying premiums into insurance companies and then having insurance companies build their profits by saying no to coverage, we're going to do this by saying, everyone is covered by Medicare for All, every health care provider is covered. And the only question here in terms of difference is where to send the bill?
