"Bernie Sanders to sponsor single-payer healthcare bill."

As Bluegill accurately notes:

"The last time the Democratic Party seriously advocated for universal, single-payer healthcare in the United States, Harry Truman was president. There's a reason Waiting for Godot, first published in English ten years after that, is considered both a farce and a tragedy."

A more direct hint: The case for Medicare for all.

Meanwhile, leave it to the odd-socialist-out to do what the Dilapidated Party cannot.


Bernie Sanders is returning to a key campaign promise and will introduce a single-payer healthcare bill in the wake of the Republicans' Obamacare replacement defeat.

The Vermont senator said Sunday that he was willing to work with both Democrats and Republicans to provide "insurance for all," two days after the GOP leadership's American Health Care Act was pulled from the House floor to avoid a legislative defeat. Sanders' support for a single-payer system was a centerpiece of his unsuccessful run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"Where we should be going is to join the rest of the industrialized world and guarantee healthcare to all people as a right," he said on CNN's "State of the Union."
