A House Speaker counselor Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Has been urged to push health policy groups to raise their concerns about "Medicare-for-all" proposals, such as starting the plan by top 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.
Politician Wendell Primus, Pelosi's health policy adviser, said in a private meeting of policy groups on November 30 that pushing for radical, single-player goals resulted in deviation from in the main message of the party's health care.

Most of the top 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have backed up a Medicare for all plans, with some advocates like Sens Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., accept the possibility that it will terminate most of the private insurance plans.
But as the Democratic leaders led to further health care reform, Pelosi separates a full embryo from a Medicare plan for everyone. In an interview with Rolling Stone in February, he said it would not be "as good as the Affordable Care Act."
"It's not a disaster [coverage] ̵1; you have to buy it, it's not dental, it's not as good as the plans you can buy under Affordable Laws. So I say to them, go with your ideas, but understand that we should improve Medicare – for everyone, including seniors – or if people do not get what they think they can get, "he said. . "And by the way, how can it be paid?"
In the broader concept of a single payer plan, he put the cost of $ 30 trillion and asked: "Now, how do you pay for it?"
According to Politician, Primus called Medicare-for-all an unsettling disorder and expressed a need for more analysis of policy implications. Some who attended the meeting said that they had left the impression Democratic leadership wanted them to undermine the measure.

"this is to get us into our agenda," someone said at the outlet. "Can you help us point out the problems?"
A Pelosi spokesman is controversial that Primus is looking for a "side assessment" of the proposal.
"Wendell has never asked for any kind of one side Medicare review for All, and anyone who says otherwise does not really listen," said spokesman Henry Connelly. "As Democrats, throughout the whole spectrum, we believe in legislating based on facts, data and honest analysis."
Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash, who introduced his own Medicare-for-all bill to House, told Politico that if so, the remarks are disappointing.
"I will do this in our leadership to make sure we do not disregard the members' fees," he said.
Disclosure is likely to fuel only the division between the more center of democratic leadership and the growing far-left wing of the Democratic freshman, presidential candidates and other legislators.
Pelosi had previously expressed about liberal proposals such as the Green New Deal – which he called "Green Dream or whatever they call," although he praised the enthusiasm behind the ambitious push to deal with no income equality and climate change.
