Bernie Sanders: Why We Need Medicare for All


The New York Times has the opinion piece Bernie Sanders: Why We Need Medicare for All.

On Wednesday I will introduce the Medicare for All Act in the Senate with 15 co-sponsors and support from dozens of grass-roots organizations. Under this legislation, every family in America would receive comprehensive coverage, and middle-class families would save thousands of dollars a year by eliminating their private insurance costs as we move to a publicly funded program.

The Huffington Post has the article Medicare For All: The Next Step In The New Deal.

Roosevelt and his fellow architects of Social Security thought universal, government-sponsored health insurance was right around the corner.

In other words, universal healthcare was part of Roosevelt’s vision when he started Social Security.

Why have the Clintons spent their careers trying to undo The New Deal? Why do voters ignore this obvious record of the Clintons when they judge their “contributions” to the progress of our country and the world?
