Biden Still Against Medicare-For-All Despite Pandemic

NBC News reports:

Joe Biden said Monday he still opposes a “Medicare for All” system for health care coverage, arguing that the policy isn’t the answer to the growing coronavirus emergency. “Single payer will not solve that at all,” the Democratic presidential front-runner told MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian in a TV interview.

“We have a whole number of hospitals that are being stretched, including rural hospitals, that are going to need more financing. That doesn’t come from a single-payer system. That comes from the federal government stepping up and dealing with the concerns that they have,” he said from his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
