Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar does not think the Mueller report is the most pressing issue for voters. Instead, they’re focusing “on bread and butter issues.”
“They were not asking about the Mueller report in Rye, New Hampshire or in Davenport, Iowa,” Klobuchar said on Morning Joe about her time on the campaign trail. “They have been asking about things like their health care, things like infrastructure, the floods coming to Iowa. That’s why I put out a major infrastructure plan today, because these are the kinds of things that matter to people.”
Klobuchar believes the report should be released to the public, especially due to 2020 election security concerns. She said she believes backup paper ballots should be available, and that social media advertising needs to be looked at.
“There are hundreds and hundreds of pages that not only has Congress not seen, but the public hasn't seen,” Klobuchar said.
When it comes to health care, Klobuchar told Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that she wants to build on the Affordable Care Act.
“One glaring omission over the last decade, where Congress has done nothing, is bring down the cost of pharmaceuticals,” Klobuchar said. “And that means everything from negotiation with Medicare, to bring down costs for our seniors, to bringing in less expensive drugs from Canada, a bill that I have with Senator Grassley. In Minnesota, we can see Canada from our porch and we see those cheaper prices and we want them in our country.”
