Last year on this day, Senator McCaskill stated at a town hall meeting that she is open to imposing a single-payer health care system:
McCASKILL: “And if we can get those health care costs down through this comparison shopping. And if we can figure out a way to make sure that comparison-shopping doesn’t go away with a single-payer system, that we don’t lose the value of competition, then I think we could consider it. In the meantime, what I think that we should do is put what is a quasi-public option on the exchanges. People between the ages of 55 and 65 are the people that need health insurance the most, and in the Republican bills are going to pay the most.”
McCaskill made it clear that she supports an even more liberal government run health care system than the disastrous ObamaCare. She even went as far as to vote “present” when single-payer legislation was on the Senate floor just a few weeks later. McCaskill could have outright voted “no,” but instead she showed that she is beholden to far-left liberals and their extreme policy agenda rather than representing the interests of Missourians.
