A top advisor of the Biden administration snapped at an MSNBC host who challenged him on an “inefficient, overpriced” healthcare provision in the stimulus bill passed by Democrats.

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan pressed Cedric Richmond on why the bill provided $35 billion to support COBRA health care benefits for 2 million unemployed people instead of simply paying for a universal healthcare system.

“How is that a good use of that money?” asked Hasan. “$35 billion subsidizing insurance companies for six months, wouldn’t that money be better invested towards building universal healthcare in this country?”
