He pretty much said yes


On what planet is this semi coherent mess "yes I'm on board with Single Payer."
It's weasel language. He avoided committing to any policy because no, he is not on board with single payer. Otherwise, there was NO reason for that mess of a response.


He said yes with elaboration.

He didn't say "f*** yeah" before executing an insurance agent, so of course you'll find a reason to whine

"Is the DNC on board with Medicare for all/Single Payer Tom?"

well you know, we want to make sure healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and that's why we've fought for the affordable care act, that's why we want to continue to expand it, we want to make sure everybody and uh, the affordable care act has made tremendous progress, we have more work to do. And I think the unity, Chris that we've shown in the recent efforts by Trump to repeal the affordable care act has been an energizing force for democrats independents others, who share the values of inclusion and opportunity and healthcare is absolutely a right in this country or should be. It shouldn't be a privilege, and obviously we believe that as Democrats, Republicans don't appear to believe that.


A simple "yes" or "no" would suffice Tom.

It may have been long-winded, but it's a coherent answer. That's not what a "world salad" is.
He who strikes with meaning is killed by meaning.

He doesn't actually say yes. He never says anything pro single payer in that. He hits the high notes of expanding the ACA and healthcare being a right, not a privilege. But never states support for single payer.

Of course! We want to make sure healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and that's why we've fought for the affordable care act, that's why we want to continue to expand it, we want to make sure everybody and uh, the affordable care act has made tremendous progress, we have more work to do.

I mean it's that simple... The man before you said yes, you say you support him, back him up on that yes!

Otherwise that whole thing before is giving me the impression that they'll try just once then do f*** all if nothing happens, instead of putting the same effort they did with the ACA.

I'm shocked that a politician would give a non-answer to a simple question.

Protip: Generally when a politician starts their response to a question with: "Well you know...", you know they're going to start feeding you bulls***.

Apparently, expecting politicians to answer "yes" or "no" questions with "yes" or "no" is too much.
Nobody's buying it anymore, it's a common political trick to skirt around outright voicing support for anything so when you suddenly veer to the other side you can say "well I never technically said I supported that!"

We just had an election that was decided by people being sick and tired of that garbage and Perez is still doing it with a policy that more Republicans than not support.


Whine whine moan moan I don't understand basic concepts or facts.

Easy summation of your posts now. But lol at the notion Republicans will support full single payer. I bet they just didn't support Obamacare because it's not liberal enough

It is too much to expect a simple yes/ no answer.

Especially when one essentially takes pot shots at your last presidents health care legislation. The key is reframing the answer in expanding the ACA, not acting like the ACA is crap that needs to be thrown out. Which he does try to do. He just didn't do it effectively IMO.
