Whitehouse Latest NE Senator To Join Push For Single-Payer Health Care

"Health care is a right, not a privilege", Ms. Gillibrand said on Twitter.

With a Republican-controlled Senate and House of Representatives, it is unlikely Sanders' universal healthcare bill heads anywhere close to Trump's desk. The debate was over just how socialistic the bill should be, with some supposedly "moderate" senators like Montana's Max Baucus resisting taking things too far in that direction. "Nothing affects people's lives more than their health care". Pelosi's been head of the House Democrats for almost 15 years, including during both of Obama's landslide victories, but she's only been Speaker for four. When President Barack Obama was selling the Affordable Care Act, he promised Americans that they could keep their health insurance if they wanted to. Doctors would be reimbursed by the government; providers would sign a yearly participation agreement with Medicare to remain with the system.

Public polls have showed an increase in support for the concept of a single-payer health care program. "But when we talk about Cory Booker here, while he certainly hasn't ruled out running for president, I don't think this is the end game necessarily". Your income went down - you can't get that. The giant insurance megalopoly would not choose for you.

Sanders will unveil the proposal on Wednesday as Congress continues to grapple with the aftershocks of Republicans' failure to pass their own substitute for Obamacare.

Bloomberg reported the conservative Manchin as saying a single-payer system "should be explored", while adding "I want to know what happens in all the countries that have it - how well it works or the challenges they have". "As more and more Americans come on board, it will become politically possible". "But we are going to remind people of [their co-sponsorship]".

As senators lined up to pledge their support on Monday and Tuesday, it became clear that since Sanders made single payer central to his 2016 presidential campaign, the political needle has indeed shifted.

Mr. Sanders' office will livestream the introduction of the bill here.

Underscoring the unease, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, of California, a long-time backer of the single-payer idea, declined to endorse Sanders' measure Tuesday. "I think in a democracy, we should be doing what the American people want". Those include a handful of Democrats eyeing potential presidential bids in 2020, such as New Jersey Sen. (Hint: It's the people paying your bills.) And if you think the 1 percent are going to cough up that much money, I've got a surprise for you.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), who's sponsoring the "Medicare at 55 Act" with Brown, also said she wants to focus on their bill, while Sens. The Republican Party of Wisconsin, which has struggled to find a first-tier challenger for Baldwin next year, was quick with a statement: "Senator Tammy Baldwin Embraces Radical $32 Trillion Health Care Takeover".
