'Not a Big Fan of Medicare for All': Pelosi Attacks Plan Backed by Leading 2020 Democrats, Majority of Party

Pelosi’s remarks came just hours after Warren released a Medicare for All financing plan that she says would deliver a major tax cut for most families in the U.S. while also reducing national healthcare spending compared to the current for-profit system.
In a statement applauding Warren’s proposal, Social Security Works executive director Alex Lawson said “Medicare for All doesn’t cost money.”
“It saves money by eliminating the for-profit waste in the insurance system and ending the rip-off of paying the highest drug prices in the world,” said Lawson. “That’s why ‘how will you pay for it?’ has always been a completely false premise.”
Contrary to Pelosi’s suggestion that Medicare for All could damage Democrats’ chances in the 2020 election, recent polling (pdf) by Data for Progress showed “supporting Medicare for All would not hurt” the Democratic presidential nominee in a race against President Donald Trump.

Well….I guess losing won’t sting her so bad if she’s trying to lose. There’s that.

Pelosi is as corrupt as shit. Defeating Trump isn’t enough. We also have to defeat Nancy Pelosi.
