  1. MSNBC you are lucky to have Andrew Yang (our Next President) on your network. MSNBC I do not support your network. A
    Your network continues to leave Andrew Yang out of the discussion. Your networks days are numbered, televised networks are not the future and you are not needed.

  2. Andrew Yang’s position on healthcare is clear. He is absolutely committed to medicare for all, but unlike other candidates he is straightforward enough to tell you that goal is nowhere in sight until we take some basic cost control steps.

  3. Yang is correct about the response of some workers to the choice between benefits that they have spent years to obtain and government provided benefits, which may or may not be as good. I was exposed to this same problem when retirees were first offered Medicare in addition to their company retirement medical plan. The problem came when they were expected to pay additional amounts for Parts A & B. I had a lot of people asking me how they could get out of Medicare. Although I appreciate Yang's more flexible approach, I disagree with the concept of "skin in the game". Medical care delivered on a timely basis without regard to "saving up enough money to pay for the copay" on an MRI or an office visit is ultimately less expensive for the entire system. Diseases caught at an earlier stage of development can usually be handled more quickly and with less invasive methods. This National Health Care Plan is an issue that America should have addressed 50 years ago. Now that all of the other capitalist countries already have working plans, we can easily look and see what works for them. The Congress will ultimately design any plan that we end up with. Our new President can help to steer, but the details are worked out in Congress.

  4. I feel bad for yang and bernie because they do not deserve to have a part of their fan base be so utterly obnoxious and hatefilled. Bernie would win if he would tell his nutters to act decent. Since he wont it reflects poorly on him. Same for yang who encourages it more than bernie.

  5. Private & public options should be available. That being said, if I'm on a private option, I should not be taxed for the public option either. The public option should just be made available for those who want to sign up.

    For a number of reasons, particularly religious freedom, certain medical procedures and contraceptives are simply not something all Americans want to be paying for others to have. I'm not religious, and I respect that.

    People who want to eliminate private companies are typically more interested in destroying capitalism outright, rather than reign in the healthcare market to more reasonable prices.

    As a consumer, I can agree with the Dem Socialists that prices are too high, still not interested in erasing capitalism because of it. Nor do I want the federal government having everyone's data on personal health issues, particularly psychological health. That's dangerous information for the White House to have.

    Let the government prove itself first before assuming it knows better and can do better. Having the federal government compete with private insurance can only lead to better coverage.

  6. The United States National Health Care Act or Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act is a bill first introduced in the United States House of Representatives by former Representative John Conyers (D-MI) in 2003, with 25 cosponsors.

  7. Chris you are confused because you are not smart enough and was paid to say so to mislead the audience, so audience are hearing confusion to Andrews policy, Andrews policy is loud and clear and you have to be very very dumb to not getting it!? It’s much more superior than other candidates plans!!!!!

  8. I wish Andrew Yang would simply call it "Single Payer Option with low deductibles and other cost reducing measures" to start out … then, if people are satisfied, they will start dropping (or reducing coverage) from their private plans.

  9. This why Yang is not a good candidate. He wants to are time for private insurance companies to undermine Medicare for all. They will offer plans that seem competitive while introducing complexities and prior authorization for covered medical procedures. The goal, of course will be too undermine M4A.

  10. Yang is pretty darn clear here: Public option and going toward universal coverage but without the large scale disruptions proposed by Bernie's single-provider for all proposal.

  11. Seems like MSNBC asked Andrew Yang on the show, just so they could trip him up, but he's too smart for that. Also, there is nothing to criticize him about. Instead, Chris Hayes comes out looking misinformed and confused; obviously not doing his research. What is really underhanded is when they could not make Andrew look bad in the interview, they had to bring these two talking heads to try and smear Yang. MSNBC did not upload this part of the clip. One of the heads, some white haired old guy, said that he thought those people standing behind Yang were his only black supporters. I bet he knows by now how stupid that sounds!

  12. ‪Happy Holidays! Have you heard the new #YangGang song? ‬

  13. I'd donate all my $$ to get Andrew Yang to be my president if I live in the US. You'd get back more than your $$ back from the $12K/yr for the rest of your life. America you got one shot, don't lose.

  14. He could've call it universal healthcare, yang care , care for all, come on!! . Medicare for all was prop up by Bernie so alot of people are gonna think it's the same. That skin in the game will rig the public option to fail .


    support our president!

  16. Truth is, Yang doesn't really have any coherent Policies and he has no relevant experience in Government whatsoever… If the three leading candidates all dropped dead he would still be odds on to get about 3 % of the vote…

  17. andrew is lying. he is not for medicare for all. he is supposed to be a decent man with honest plans. this is such a blatant lie. he can say medicare public option and ubi instead of lying to people by saying medicare for all

  18. I really like Yang, but I do think he needs to make a clearer stance on health care. While I think MSNBC has been absolutely shameful in their coverage of Yang, the health care questions from Chris Hayes seem valid to me.

  19. I support the spirit of access to phase in eventual support for Andrew Yang (;-) (;-) Yang: charlatan/liar, thinks we're stupid. Save U.S. from another minute of health insurance extortionists! #MedicareForAll #GoBoldOrGoHome

  20. Honestly, the far left liberal media and personnel that smeared Andrew should be ashamed of themselves. I respect Bernie's plan that's trying to bring healthcare for all. But I also like Andrew's that try to achieve a similar goal in a different way and frankly, his plan is a lot more realistic to pass the Congress. If they don't like it, don't vote for him. There's no need to smear. But it seems to me these attackers have a hidden agenda.

  21. So disappointed in Yang. Please America, do not fall for this bait-and-switch. Yang is not for M4A. He is not for single payer. He supports private insurance, which is why your healthcare is so expensive. Keeping private insurance will push the sick onto the public plan, reduce bargaining power for the government to lower drug prices, and by and large, keep things the way that they are.

  22. Post the full 7 minute interview please MSNBC. Cherrypicking segments of your own interview is disrespectful to yourself.
    Full interview here:

  23. Bernie's medical for all will throw 2 million people off their jobs. Bernie's plan to address the job loss is to have federal jobs retraining program and a federal jobs guarantee lol. if you are a yang supporter.. you will just shake your head. There is no way the government can retrain 2 million people to get new careers. And additionally the government is terrible at running real businesses.. crashed within hours upon launch and had to be rebuilt by silicon valley. Obama had to throw out a bunch of red tape just so the specialist can come in and fix it.. And this is just a website. I don't trust bernie's plan to address the massive job losses that will come with his Medicare 4 all plan.

  24. Rest of the Democrats be like, "Yeah… That's cool and all… But as the only person of color competing for the nomination, what do you think about race and racism and the racial racist racism that's racially racialized our racist races??"

  25. “the spirit of medicare for all” is lip service, and meaningless. No better than what Pete Buttigieg is proposing. It’s sad. I guess he doesn’t want the liberal vote.

  26. We can't talk about universal healthcare and, at the same time, COMPLETELY IGNORE the fact that most diseases are PREVENTABLE with a healthy diet & lifestyle. See Dr Micheal Greger's How Not To Die book & lectures.
    Not only that, but the American "healthcare" system is the * THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THIS COUNTRY!!!* If we don't address the UNDERLYING CAUSE of the obesity, cancer, diabetes, dementia & heart disease **EPIDEMICS**, and we just funnel EVERYONE into the system, there will be hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of deaths due to the antiquated & dangerous sickcare system. America has GOT to take control of the toxic food & advertising environment we're immersed in & addicted to. All else is folly.

  27. Cris, this issue has been answered during your media blackout. You member. This was fully explained by ANDREW YANG, member? You member. Autonomy and independent journalism is as American as apple pie. Get your boot off of our throats and put the money in our hands.

  28. The only reason this issue would ever be brought up again is that you have no other legitimate grievance on ANDREW YANGS platform to bring up. He has answered every question during his 14 hour marathon questioning, he spent an awfully amount of time on this issue alone.

  29. None of you YangGangers are even talking about the laughable garbage that spewed out of Yangs mouth in this interview. He does not support Medicare for all based on his actual website but using the terminology to win voters. It's incredibly disingenuous and gross.

  30. I want to see these yang haters when yang actually becomes president but ik it would be unlikey…. it would still be nice to see these closeminded people crawling back to yang UBI ….. cause even when ppl criticise him about the UBI, Free money no strings attached is a thing everyone wants…..and u would be stupid if you actually don't get it…..
