On July 20, House Democrats launched a “Medicare-for-All” congressional caucus with the intention of educating other lawmakers and staff on the basics of a government-run, single-payer health care system, and of examining how other such systems operate in other countries. There are 70 founding caucus members. A House “Medicare-for-All” bill now has 122 co-sponsors (out of 435 House Members), which is nearly two thirds of all House Democrats. In the Senate, a separate “Medicare-for-All” bill has been introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). That bill has 16 Democratic co-sponsors.
