Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Bullock says he wouldn’t give health care to undocumented immigrants”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana on Wednesday came out against providing government health care to immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally, breaking with top contenders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination and signaling that he doesn’t plan on pandering to liberal activists on thorny issues that could scare off middle-of-the-road voters.

Mr. Bullock missed the cut for the first presidential debate where several of the candidates said they supported granting government health insurance to immigrants who are in the country illegally, and decriminalizing border crossings.

“No, I would not be giving undocumented immigrants to this country health care right now,” Mr. Bullock said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

While Mr. Bullock said he prefers addressing migrant health care as part of a broader immigration fix, he added that he doesn’t support the push for “Medicare for All” that has energized the left wing of the party.

The governor said he prefers adding a government-run public option, raising concerns about the estimated cost of a $30 trillion to 40 trillion Medicare for All system, as well as the idea of having to strip private health coverage from 165 million Americans in order to transition them into a new system.
