“There may be a bill in the next couple weeks, and we will debate that,” Bob Casey told MSNBC’s Katy Tur on Wednesday.
Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) wouldn’t say whether he supports a single-payer health care bill on Wednesday, during an interview on MSNBC.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked Casey if President Trump’s claim that Democrats want a single-payer program is accurate. Casey elected to dodge Tur’s question, instead discussing why he doesn’t support the Republicans’ effort to repeal Obamacare.
“So, senator, yes or no on single-payer?” Tur asked Casey after he had finished answering.
“Well, Katy, look, there is no bill that speaks to that,” Casey responded. “There may be a bill in the next couple weeks and we will debate that.”
“So you’re not taking it off the table as of now?” Tur interjected.
“I’m sure there will be a bill on that and when that bill is introduced, we will debate it,” Casey responded.
Casey is up for re-election in 2018 in Pennsylvania, a state Trump won in 2016.
