Bernie Sanders introduced a new Medicare for All Act today in the Senate that would guarantee universal health benefits with no means-testing or exclusions. It’s the kind of bill Sanders would fight for as president.

Instead of championing Medicare for All, the Democratic leadership is proposing mild tweaks to Obamacare. That's a disaster — centrist incrementalism is a gift to Trump.
After flip-flopping on health reform for years, Beto O'Rourke claims his public-option bill is a path to Medicare for All. It isn't — the bill's means-tested approach will pit working people against each another, keep private insurance companies afloat, and stop M4A's momentum.
Previous estimates suggested that Medicare for All would save $2 trillion. But it's even better: a new study finds that Bernie Sanders's bill would save $5.1 trillion — while providing universal, comprehensive coverage.
Medicare for All threatens top Democratic donors' interests, so Democrats offer the public option as a watered-down compromise.
Barack Obama thinks Medicare for All is a good idea. His support is welcome — but this time, we won’t accept any compromises on a universal, free public health program.
