House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is pulling back the curtains on potential Democratic policies should her party retake the House in November, saying universal healthcare is definitely “on the table.”
Pelosi was speaking with reporters Thursday when she weighed-in on a potential “Medicare for all” system in the United States, saying she’s “always been for a public option” that enables all Americans to receive government-financed healthcare.
“I’ve always been for a public option so I’m always eager to talk about that,” said Pelosi.
“Some of the other issues that have been proposed have to be evaluated in terms of the access that they give, the affordability of it and how we would pay for it, but again it’s all on the table,” she added.
A potential “Medicare for All” program has been touted by Democrats for years, including 2020 frontrunner Bernie Sanders who called for the program during his 2016 run against Hillary Clinton.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Democrat Edge EVAPORATES Heading into Summer
The Democrats’ double-digit lead continued to crash and burn this week, with new polls showing the GOP has either erased the liberal advantage or is actually beating their left-wing opponents on generic ballots.
The lead -once as high as 18 points- is all but gone on ballots asking voters if they preferred Democrats or Republicans; raising serious questions about the overly-hyped “blue wave” expected to sweep Congress this fall.
Late last year, Liberal Congressman Ted Lieu warned of a Democrat “megatsunami” heading into the midterm.

Those predictions may turn out to be little more than wishful thinking, with a new Reuters poll showing Republicans enjoying a 2% edge over their Democratic opponents.
Say good-bye to the D-advantage in the generic ballot. Our latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that registered voters as likely to support Republicans as Democrats. @ReutersPolitics https://t.co/0ZIVVs6Zqc pic.twitter.com/rLIHL7jPRl

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Magazine Admits Democrats Are ‘BLOWING’ Midterms
The media’s over-hyped prediction of a Democratic “blue wave” this fall continued to crash and burn this week, with a prominent magazine admitting the liberal legislators are totally “blowing” the 2018 midterm elections.
The Week published an article Thursday titled, “Democrats are totally blowing it,” where the author blasts the left-wing lawmakers for acting like “simpering” dealmakers who are “barely muddling” towards an election disaster.
“Democrats should clean up in the midterms. Instead, they’re barely muddling through,” writes the author.
“Democrats, you had this. If you blow it with an inability to sustain a brawl for more than six months, rest assured: You will be replaced with other lawmakers who can,” he adds.
