Sen. Sanders Introduces Medicare-for-All Amendment in the U.S. Senate

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) yesterday introduced a Medicare-for-All amendment in the U.S. Senate. Amendment No. 2837 would replace the current Senate health reform bill with provisions to establish a single payer, Medicare-for-All universal program.  According to the Senator, "this amendment starts from the premise that health care is a human right, and that every citizen, rich or poor, should have access to health care, just as every citizen has access to the fire department, the police or public schools."
