Cory Booker Co-Sponsoring Bernie Sanders' 'Medicare-for-All' Healthcare Bill

Cory Booker Co-Sponsoring Bernie Sanders' 'Medicare-for-All' Healthcare Bill

"This week, I'll proudly join Senator Bernie Sanders to co-sponsor Medicare for All", Gillibrand wrote on Twitter. But despite this rising support for single-payer health care, dozens of Democrats have yet to voice support for Sanders' legislation. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, are also supporting the bill, according to news reports. Sanders, a Vermont Independent, made the issue a cornerstone of his unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Sanders says the bill he will release on Wednesday will provide a more detailed blueprint for his health care plans.

Universal health care coverage was a trademark of Sanders' campaign for the White House previous year, though his latest push has attracted a wider array of Democrats. It found 53 percent of respondents saying they'd support "a national health plan, or a single payer plan, in which all Americans would get their insurance from a single government plan". A Pew survey from last June shows only 33% support the idea of single payer. With our health insurance markets collapsing under Obamacare's weight, the Democrats are seizing the opportunity, as they always do, to push the country further left.

"You should not be punished because you are working class or poor...."

Pep Guardiola praises Manchester City keeper over Mane collision
Sadio Mane and Wijnaldum are seen asking for the ball in the middle on noticing the space exposed by the Man City defenders. We had our chances in the first half and we were maximum 60%.

But if a Democrat wins the White House in 2020, it now seems very likely he or she will have promised to pursue single-payer as president.

"Right now, I'm protecting the Affordable Care Act", Pelosi told a small group of reporters at a meeting Tuesday in her Capitol Hill office. "I think, right now, he wants to be the rational and reasonable voice of the progressive wing of the Democratic party". In the Trump era, he saw that there was an opportunity for someone to establish themselves as a progressive leader without necessarily being a firebrand like a Bernie Sanders or an Elizabeth Warren. On the other hand, when they offered reasons to support single payer (it would guarantee universal coverage, it would save administrative costs), support climbed as high as 72 percent.

Already, two Democrats seen as potential presidential contenders, California Sen.

The Vermont independent nearly stole the Democratic presidential nomination from Hillary Clinton past year. The GOP's failed efforts to repeal and/or replace the Affordable Care Act have cemented government's increased role in health care, and not even Republicans are really arguing for a big rollback on that.
