John Knefel unpacks the “Medicare for All” bill that Bernie Sanders recently brought forth in the Senate. This bill, which proposes a single payer health care plan for the United States, was introduced with sixteen co-sponsors and has quickly gained attention and popularity. While Sanders knows that his plan has no chance of becoming law at this point in time, it is being recognized as a much more reasonable starting point than similar plans of the past.
Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
