President Biden’s HHS nominee Xavier Becerra is a big backer of “Medicare for all,” which of course is government-run health care.
In this 2017 interview, he acknowledged proudly that he has backed it for a couple dozen years, way before it seemed such a serious thing.
You think he’ll have no influence in the Biden administration? Becerra is a veteran Washington operator who knows how to get stuff done.
They’ll start with the “public option,” a government health plan, for Obamacare and go from there. Or just try to pass socialized medicine in Congress.
