Trump says it 'doesn't seem fair' that 30 million Americans are uninsured and suggests he may expand Medicare or Medicaid

During Wednesday's coronavirus briefing, the Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts asked Vice President Mike Pence a series of pointed questions about the administration's decision this week not to temporarily reopen the Obamacare marketplace to allow uninsured Americans to purchase coverage during the pandemic.

"There will be people who don't have insurance who get sick before any of these mitigation efforts are put into place," Roberts said. "And without opening the healthcare exchanges, where can they find insurance? People who aren't insured by these companies that are covering the cost of the copays, where can people go, now, to get health insurance if they get - before they get sick?"

Pence did not answer the question but argued that Medicaid and some American health insurance companies were making "inspiring" decisions to waive copays on coronavirus testing and treatment.

[Trump] said it "doesn't seem fair" that so many Americans can't afford to purchase insurance but don't qualify for Medicare or Medicaid - appearing to suggest those programs could be expanded to include more people.

4. This has to be a joke, right?

He wants to expand Medicare or Medicaid - after spending years sabotaging the ACA - which does just that - and after rejecting the possibility of reopening the open enrollment period.

8. Nice headline, Business Insider. I'm sure the asshole who tried to repeal Obamacare

(and has spent years undermining it) is suddenly going to expand two programs he wanted to gut in his most recent budget proposal. Sure thing.

The MSM can kiss my ass.
