Trump War Room tweeted on 19 February 2020 that Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said that he did not care if Americans lost the health insurance they have through their employers.

Buttigieg's campaign video posted on Facebook by Fox News shows that he replied to a question about Medicare plans by saying that it was up to the private insurance companies to come up with something better that would compete with his Medicare plan or fail to do so and that he did not care about it. He advocated having public health insurance as an option, and about giving people the flexibility to choose between it and private plans. He also said that the purpose of his plan was to see that everyone would get insurance in one way or the other. (Video reference: 25:00)
