PostSubject: Bernie Sanders' Medicare-For-All Bill   Thu Sep 14, 2017 6:46 am

Yesterday Sanders introduced a bill proposing Medicare be expanded to cover everybody, for basic healthcare. Our taxes would go up, but we'd no longer have to buy health insurance (or our employers wouldn't either).
Quote :
In the House of Representatives, 115 out of the 187 Democrats have signed up to co-sponsor similar Medicare-expansion legislation. In the Senate, 15 out of 48 are with Mr Sanders on his bill.

The bill of course stands no chance of being brought up to a vote, much less passing. It would require drug companies to negotiate prices (which the lobbyists won't allow) and it would basically put 526,000 health insurance workers out of a job.

But it's an opening for discussion, and the fact that it even made it this far indicates that change is in the wind.
