Medicare-for-All continues to attract censure from both sides of the aisle.

Republicans aren’t happy about the inevitably higher taxes and low quality of care which would come as a result of such an insane proposal. Democrat elites, such as Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, believe that a policy like Medicare-for-All will alienate voters and work against Democrats in a general election.

Nevertheless, 2020 candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders remain committed to Medicare-for-All.

John Delaney, another Democrat running for office, is the latest critic of Medicare-for-All. According to Fox News, Delaney recently took aim at Warren’s Medicare-for-All plan, stating that it essentially forces Americans to buy into one, set system.

A Closer Look at Delaney’s Censure of Medicare-for-All

During an interview with America’s Newsroom, Delaney branded Medicare-for-All as an “insane approach” towards dealing with presently-existing issues with the healthcare system. The 2020 Democrat then offered his alternative to Medicare-for-All which is “a federal health care plan” to cover persons without healthcare or without enough healthcare.

Delany’s criticism continued by stating that Warren is misleading the American people with the title of her proposal. The 2020 Democrat maintains that “Medicare-for-All” doesn’t even come close to Medicare.

Finally, Delaney took aim at Warren’s wealth tax plan; he stated that wealthy Americans ought to pay more money, but claimed, “that doesn’t mean” a wealth tax is necessary.

More on John Delaney’s Presidential Campaign

In the current field of Democrats, Delaney isn’t doing so well. He doesn’t seem to get covered very often in the media; although, he has previously sparred with Warren at past debates. On Delaney’s social media feeds, he often touts the merits of having a blended Democrat Party comprised of both moderates and progressives.

However, Democrats don’t really seem to be looking for moderatism, despite how much this hurts their party. Whenever a left-winger fails to toe the extreme, progressive line, they’re immediately denounced and accused of parroting Republican talking points.
