Gillibrand joins train of Dem 2020 hopefuls backing Medicare-for-all

"Health care is a right, not a privilege", Gillibrand tweeted out. When Obamacare happened, conservatives declared that it was little more than a prelude to single payer, which was coming next. She insisted, "He's not even a Democrat. This is a fight about strategy for getting there". At this point it's fast becoming a prerequisite for any Democrat hoping to run for the presidency in 2020.

Under a single-payer system, the federal government cover medical expenses, which Booker supports.

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. During his 2016 presidential bid, he pushed for a federally-administered single-payer health care program. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii). I don't even think it's a close call politically. "To support the idea that it captures is that we want to have everybody, as many people as possible, covered".

"Well, I just totally reject that". "Yet somehow, they manage to never actually pass it!"

"I think we need more competition in the system", Gillibrand told the Albany Times-Union in 2006. I argued back in July that the biggest victor of the Obamacare repeal debate was single-payer. And he is by no means the only Democrat who ostensibly takes this position.

New Jersey's Sen. Cory Booker announced earlier in the day that he is now a co-sponsor of the "Medicare for All", saying it is a continuation of progress made under the Affordable Care Act.

Those hopefuls seem to have the backing of American citizens. They warned of a slippery slope from Obamacare, a relatively moderate bill, to "socialized medicine". Max Baucus (D-MT) said last week that he also supports a single-payer system. He didn't support Democrats. In short, using Sanders' plan as a catalyst for a takeover by Democrats of the House and Senate would cost more votes than it attracts.

New York's 20th district, as of November 1, 2006, had almost 83,000 more Republicans than Democrats. Clinton also apparently levels criticisms at Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden (for weak support) and even former President Barack Obama (for not sharing with the public information on Russian meddling). But that proposal came with an eye-popping price tag and a slew of new taxes.

Sanders himself has conceded his bill has little chance in the GOP-dominated Congress, telling NPR the goal is to inject a single-payer system into the health care debate on Capitol Hill. "The establishment media attacks us all the time".

One narrative, backed up by polling, is that voters feel no particular allegiance to the Democrats.
