Beto O’Rourke in Flint: Texans Go to Jail for the Healthcare
In his campaign stump speech Wednesday, July 24, 2019, presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke explained to supporters in Flint, Michigan his vision for the country should he win the upcoming election in 2020.
Beto O'Rourke made a pit stop in Flint following a Detroit appearance at a presidential forum in Detroit for a Town Hall event. The Democratic candidate spoke to a crowd of about 200 at Flint's Ferris Wheel building for about an hour.
One of the topics he unsurprisingly discussed was his desire to offer a government-run universal healthcare system for all, a popular idea among many of the Democratic presidential candidates.
The "breaking news" came in the form of an anecdote he told about citizens in his hometown of El Paso, Texas. Apparently, it's become common for them to take an unusual approach to secure quality healthcare, especially in the case of those with mental ailments such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, clinical depression. Rather than try to paraphrase Mr. O'Rourke, hear his comments yourself in the video above.
