Glens Falls: Following Congresswoman Elise Stefanik taking Tedra Cobb to task for flip-flopping on Medicare for All, Cobb has – yet again – come out with a new stance on health care.
“Tedra Cobb is still focused on health care reform in her campaign for New York’s 21st Congressional District, but she is vague on the details of what she thinks that reform should look like.
“The Democratic candidate from Canton now supports a public-option expansion of the Affordable Care Act. That is a change from her 2018 campaign when at times she supported a‘Medicare for All’ overhaul of the health care system and at other times did not say what system she preferred.”
THE OFFICIAL TIMELINE OF COBB’S DIZZYING FLIP-FLOP ON HEALTH CARE:
October 2018: Tedra Cobb “strongly favors a ‘single-payer’ medical coverage plan.”
November 2019: The Albany Times Union reports “Both publicly and in response to questions from reporters, Cobb declined to take a position on Medicare for All, saying it was a ‘conversation’ she is willing to have.”
February 2020: Cobb tells the Adirondack Daily Enterprise she has a new position – the same as Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg?
“Taxin’ Tedra Cobb’s dizzying flip-flops on everything from Medicare for All to impeachment to whether Soleimani was a terrorist are causing her to lose support from more and more Democrats each day,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “My positions are clear and consistent on every single issue. Voters know my convictions are firm and they know where I stand on every issue. It’s unfortunate Taxin’ Tedra can’t say the same.”
