Valatie, NY – After securing the praise and endorsement of out-of-district liberal activist and actress Susan Sarandon, “unabashedly progressive” candidate Jeff Beals continued to double down on his support for the Medicare for All, Single-Payer healthcare scheme championed by progressives nationally.
In a video posted online, Beals called passage of the single-payer scheme authored by Rep. Keith Ellison his “top priority.”
“Jeff Beals’ government takeover of health care will force Americans into a government run health system and eliminate their employer-provided health insurance,” Faso for Congress campaign manager Tom Szymanski said. “Bernie Sanders and Congressional Progressive Caucus leader Keith Ellison might want the government making their health care decisions, but Upstate families don’t. It should come as no surprise that Beals fails to offer up any serious proposals or ideas as to how he’d pay for his extremely costly policy prescriptions. Taxpayers should beware.”
Last year, Vox reported that the Beals’ endorsed Ellison proposal would “likely result in the largest tax increase in modern American history, one that would almost certainly have to hit everyone.”
