Liberal Alaska Senate Candidate Falsely Claims He Never Backed Medicare for All (VIDEO)

Alaska Senate candidate Al Gross (I.) used to boast of being an “outspoken advocate” of single-payer health care, but now that he’s running for statewide office his position is that he “never” supported such a system.

“Some of you may know me as an outspoken advocate for a single-payer system in Alaska or national,” Gross said in 2017 at a public policy forum addressing health care. He also tweeted in 2018 that America needed “a Medicare for all type of health care system,” but last month when a questioner on Alaska Public Media read Gross his own words, he denied ever saying them.

“I never said that,” he told the radio audience. “I’ve never said that I support Medicare for All as a policy for America.”

But the tweet he was asked about is still posted on his Twitter.
