Pelosi Cuts Livestream When Protester Confronts Democrats About Universal Health Care

The House Minority Leader apparently did not want to discuss California's push for single-payer.

A livestream of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s tax town hall on Thursday cut out when one attendee confronted the Democratic panel about California’s effort to institute universal health care in the state.

As the event ended, the attendee yelled, “S.B. 562, which is the Health Care for All Californians, only awaits a champion.”

“Would anyone on the panel be willing to be a champion for S.B. 562?” he asked.

As he continued, the moderator interrupted the protester, telling him, “The event is over.”

Pelosi did not say anything, and her livestream shut down.

S.B. 562 would give California a single-payer system, and the Democratic Speaker of the California Assembly, Rep. Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount), refused to consider the bill.

Reps. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Nanette Barragan (D-CA) were also in attendance.
