8:43 am
we have with even with the aca hi has been taps possibletive you don't have health insures for 29 million people in and cost soar. >> and so we need a simpler kind of system andn this country and i think the medicare for all plan makes enormous sense. >> single. >> for access and in terms ofcost containment. >> go ahead. >> look, secretary clinton made it clear we need to build off the aca. , it's a transformative things. over 16 million americans have health insurance since the enactment: the sergeant believes in the public option and believes we -- the secretary believes in the public option and believes we need to work with states for that. that could extend access for health care many we want to bring down costs including deductibles and cost of prescription drugs. >> how?
