At 20:47 the moderator asks the question about health care.
Briefly, here’s what they said:
Rep. Reggie Thomas stated that we should move forward and implement a Medicare for All, single payer system.
Geoff Young said that he would sign on as a cosponsor of HR 676.
Mayor Jim Gray said that we need to improve what we’ve got.
Amy McGrath said that we need to fix the Affordable Care Act and add a public option and a Medicare Buy-In
Chuck Eddy said he opposes repeal of the Affordable Care Act and that we need to improve it.
David Kemph says he supports single payer but that it must be done in an orderly way by first combining Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA.
Theodore Green says he supports single payer but that the ACA needs to be tweaked and made a part of a single payer plan.
The segment on health care ends at 26:33. If you listen to 6 minutes of the video beginning at 20:47 you can hear all of their statements on health care.
