The Senate Minority Leader said that a single payer health care system is still on the table during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Sunday said that the Democrats’ “Better Deal” plan that will be revealed on Monday would not address Obamacare, despite the fact that the marketplaces are collapsing across America.
ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos asked Schumer about whether Democrats would unify behind a single payer health care system.
Schumer dodged the question, telling Stephanopoulos that the “Better Deal” will not be addressing health care, citing that Democrats have been talking about health care for months.
Though later on in his answer, Schumer did say that single payer was still on the table for Democrats, seemingly wanting to have it both ways on the controversial issue.
