Ilhan Omar speaks about Medicare for All

Local broadcaster KMSP reported Omar emphasized that the existing American healthcare system was dysfunctional, characterizing the status quo as wasteful, deadly and psychologically scarring as well as unsustainable.

"We are one of the wealthiest countries in the history of this world.

And yet, millions of adults in the United States still do not have healthcare insurance," Omar said at the panel.

"One in four Americans cannot afford or access healthcare they need because of the prohibitive costs.

This is unacceptable.

It is a moral imperative that we fix it, and Medicare for all will do that." KMSP also reported that the Minnesota Congressional Representative also took the opportunity to discuss the role of student debt relief and free tuition policies in allowing healthcare providers to operate in rural areas of the country.
