Seth Moulton Speaks Out Against Universal Health Care Controlled by Government

April 24, 2019

U.S. Representative and now-presidential candidate Seth Moulton (D-Salem) spoke out against government-run universal health care on Wednesday, saying he’d like to see public health insurance plans and private health insurance plans compete instead.

“So, if you like your private health care you are not forced into a public plan,” Moulton said during a breakfast in Bedford, New Hampshire on Wednesday, April 24, according to the Gloucester Daily Times, which covers Cape Ann, which is in his Sixth Congressional District in Massachusetts.

So-called Medicare-for-all, which many left-wing Democrats are now supporting, is not for Moulton.

“I don’t think it’s right to take every American, many of whom are happy with the health care they have, and force them on some government plan designed in 1963,” Moulton said, according to the Gloucester Daily Times.

Moulton also spoke about his longstanding wish to have the U.S. House of Representatives vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
