Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will introduce his vision for universal healthcare, called Medicare for All, on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

His long-promised healthcare package will include a variety of changes, including care for the disabled and eliminating the need for private insurance companies. It would expand the same coverage that's currently offered to those over 65 to all Americans.

"In the United States of America, you should not be forced into bankruptcy for being diagnosed with cancer," Sanders tweeted Tuesday. He will introduce the proposal at 11:15 a.m. EDT.

The independent senator's Medicare for All Act of 2019 is so far supported by a number of lawmakers and more than 50 national organizations.

It has more than a dozen co-sponsors in the Senate, including Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand -- all of whom are also vying with Sanders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
