When asked during a CNN town hall Thursday evening about her views on 2020 presidential candidates, such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who support replacing the Affordable Care Act with Medicare for All, Pelosi replied, “I’m not for doing away with Obamacare.”
She pointed to the House’s role in drafting the landmark 2010 legislation, referencing expanded access and benefits provided as a result of the Affordable Care Act, but she acknowledged that it had room for improvement.
“There are improvements that can be made once you see the implementation of legislation, so I would rather call for health care for all Americans,” she said. “As we improve the Affordable Care Act, it may lead to Medicare for All.”
