USA Healthcare

Idea

The times are certainly changing, or so it seems. US Senator, VT Bernie Sanders unveiled his long-anticipated legislation to create a national single-payer health system with the support from 15 Democratic Senate co-sponsors.

His Single-Payer government-run health care system is an idea which is gaining ground among Democrats who are seen as possible presidential candidates. https://youtu.be/e7qQ6_RV4VQ https://youtu.be/OUOOrUsXBWI

US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, NY is the ninth Democratic senator to publicly support the "Medicare-For-All Act of 2017," joining Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and others. Their support raises the possibility that more than one Democratic candidate in 2020 will have announced support for a single-payer system. Sanders made single-payer a focal point of his failed presidential primary bid against Hillary Clinton.

Some think this idea may mean that our morals are changing. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2017/09/13/single-...
