It’s really something to see Democrats arguing about healthcare less than a decade after they supposedly fixed this problem.
When Democrats passed Obamacare, lots of Americans lost the healthcare plans they really liked, so it’s amazing that Warren would say this.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Warren Claims No One ‘Likes Their Health Insurance Company,’ But Most Americans Like Their Health Care
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said she “never met anyone who likes their health insurance company” at the Democratic Debate on Thursday evening, but a Gallup poll revealed that most Americans are quite happy with their health care.
“So let’s be clear, I’ve actually never met anyone who likes their health insurance company,” Warren said. “I’ve met people who like their doctors, I met people who like their nurses, I’ve met people who like their pharmacists, I met people who like their physical therapists. What they want is access to health care.”
However, a 2018 Gallup poll revealed that most Americans are happy with their own health care; the vast majority of Americans rate both the quality and coverage of their healthcare as “excellent” or “good.”
Warren further added that she doesn’t think for-profit insurance companies should run health care plans.
“Instead of paying premiums into insurance companies and then having insurance companies build their profits by saying no to coverage, we’re going to do this by saying, everyone is covered by Medicare for All, every health care provider is covered,” she said. “The only question here in terms of difference is where to send the bill.”

The tweet below is absolutely correct:
Middle class families paying less for healthcare is a lie being told by Elizabeth Warren. Her plan cannot be paid for without an enormous tax increase on the middle class.

But again, why are Democrats even discussing “fixing” our healthcare system?
They told us they fixed it with Obamacare.
