Trump Administration: Single-Payer Is A 'Horrible Idea'

President Donald Trump thinks single-payer health insurance is a 'horrible idea' according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

President Donald Trump thinks the single-payer healthcare plan backed by a growing number of Senate Democrats is a “horrible idea,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday. “I think that the president as well as the majority of the country knows that the single payer system that the Democrats are proposing is a horrible idea,” Sanders said. “I can’t think of anything worse than having the government be more involved in your health care instead of less involved.”

In the past, President Trump has spoken favorably of single-payer, however.

In a Washington Post interview days before his inauguration, Trump promised that his Obamacare replacement plan would include “insurance for everybody.” And at one of the first GOP primary debates in 2015, Trump said a single-payer system “works in Canada, works incredibly well in Scotland.”
