During a recent interview, Donald Trump appeared to endorse a health care policy that his own party has been fighting against for the entirety of President Barack Obama’s tenure.
The current Republican front-runner suggested that a Trump administration would push for a form of single payer health insurance for the uninsured.
Here’s what he said in the “60 Minutes” interview:
Donald Trump: Obamacare’s going to be repealed and replaced. Obamacare is a disaster if you look at what’s going on with premiums where they’re up 40, 50, 55 percent.
Scott Pelley: How do you fix it?
Trump: There’s many different ways, by the way. Everybody’s got to be covered. This is an un-Republican thing for me to say because a lot of times they say, “No, no, the lower 25 percent that can’t afford private. But–”
Pelley: Universal health care.
Trump: I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now.
Hmmm…This sounds a bit vague. What do you think?
