Jimmy Carter on Medicare for All

The Diane Rehm Show
March 26, 2014

Diane Rehm:  Briefly, how do you feel about the Affordable Care Act?

President Jimmy Carter:  I was disappointed the way it was done and the complexity that it assumed. Instead of taking a leadership role from the White House and saying, “This is what we think is best,” they had five different congressional committees do it and it got, I think, the lowest common denominator, which is the most complex system. I would really have favored just the expansion of Medicare to include all ages, rather than just to deal with old people.
