Former Chicago mayor and Obama White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel blasted 2020 Democrats who are running for Medicare for All during an appearance on ABC on Sunday.
Emanuel warned about Democratic Socialists who want to give healthcare to illegal aliens, saying that it won’t win them the general election.

The liberal politician explained that under Medicare for All, 150 million people would lose healthcare.
“Basically, Medicare for All, which is ‘we’re going to eliminate 150 million people’s healthcare and we’re going to provide healthcare for people who just come over the border’ — that is an untenable position for the general election,” Emmanuel said.
Emmanuel explained that he just biked around Michigan and Wisconsin and nobody that he ran into at a diner said “take my healthcare away.”
“Nobody. This is reckless,” Emmanuel said, before warning the more progressive candidates that they are hindering themselves for the general election.
