Quotes from the news wire:
It's her first vote that puts in place leaders, no matter what her positions are. They have disrespected Miami for too long a period of time, we've had people that were somewhat moderate representing South Florida. All of them hit a brick wall with their ideas, and that's disrespecting the people of Miami. ... We should not reinforce that by sending someone up that's going to vote for that leadership.
' Medicare for all' is not a bad idea. I ran the Medicare program, what I have said is we have to improve the Medicare program before we start giving it to all. It has no long term care. It has no home health care. It has no dental benefits. What you want is a comprehensive plan. In fact, Medicaid is more comprehensive than Medicare is.
The other thing I want to point out, is there are a lot of people in this country that have very good health insurance from their employer. There are a lot of unions. They have negotiated that health insurance that have given up salaries for that health insurance, so, don't read this as left and right. Read it as the complexity to get to the goal we want, which is universal health care.
