“Veto question. Let’s flash forward. You’re president. Bernie Sanders is still active in the Senate. He manages to get Medicare for All through the Senate in some compromised version, the Elizabeth Warren version or other version. Nancy Pelosi gets a version of it through the House of Representatives,” MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked the former vice president late Monday. “It comes to your desk. Do you veto it?”
“I would veto anything that delays providing the security and the certainty of health care being available now. If they got that through in by some miracle or there’s an epiphany that occurred and some miracle occurred that said, OK, it’s passed. Then you got to look at the cost,” Biden responded.
Biden also said he would want to know how lawmakers expected to pay for the proposal, which he said would cost “$35 trillion.”
