Reaffirming his long-held position on expanding the welfare state, reality TV star Donald Trump said that he wants to “repeal and replace” Obamacare with universal health care.

“Who’s going to pay for it?” 60 Minutes host Scott Pelley inquired.

“The government is going to pay for it!” Trump assured.

Trump has been on record supporting socialized medicine since at least 2000. In his book, “The America We Deserve,” he wrote that “I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on health…We must have universal healthcare.” He is also on record praising his friend Hillary Clinton’s efforts toward federal-run health care and helped her launch her U.S. Senate career. The topic with Trump came up recently during the first GOP presidential debate (FOX News, August 6, 2015), where he applauded how “great” government health care works in Scotland and Canada.
