House Dems Launching Medicare For All Caucus
House Democrats are launching an official Medicare for All Caucus in an effort to promote a single-payer health-care bill. The caucus, which will officially be announced Thursday, comes as an increasingly larger number of Democrats warm to the idea. The idea, championed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), is now favored by many potential 2020 Democratic presidential contenders. (Weixel, 7/18)
