Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told John Delaney, the former representative from Maryland, to “please sashay away” after he labeled Medicare for All “not good policy.”


Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

“Since there’s so many people running for President (& not enough for Senate), instead of obsessing over who‘s a “frontrunner,” maybe we can start w some general eliminations. This awful, untrue line got boo’ed for a full minute. John Delaney, thank you but please sashay away.”


Delaney was booed when he expressed concerns about the policy that would kick “150 million Americans off their health care.” He said the initiative may sound good but “it’s actually not good policy, nor good politics.”

After beeing booed, Delaney tried to clarify his staement saying “We should have universal health care…we should have universal health care. We should have universal health care, but it shouldn’t be a kind of health care that kicks 150 million Americans off their health care. That’s not smart policy.”

Sunday night, Delaney issued a challenge to Ocasio-Cortez via Twitter to debate health-care policy on any television show of her choosing.
