Sanders town hall audience cheers after Fox News host asks if they'd support 'Medicare for all'

The audience at a Fox News town hall erupted in cheers and applause when asked by moderator Bret Baier if they would support Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) "Medicare For all" proposal.

"I want to ask the audience a question here, a show of hands... how many are willing to transition to what the senator says: a government-run system?" Baier asked before the crowd burst into cheers.

The question comes a week after Sanders introduced updated "Medicare For all" legislation in the Senate.

His proposed bill would largely eliminate private insurance and institute a single-payer system managed by the government.

The updated version would also include coverage for long-term care, such as nursing homes, which is currently not covered by the Medicare program. Home- and community-based care would also be covered.

A number of other 2020 Democratic candidates, including Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have endorsed Sanders's legislation.

2. Inslee is right there, too

 

Love Jay, but then I have voted for him! I also caucused for Bernie last time. Shame we don't get to do that anymore. It was Democracy as an experience.


All we have to do really is an ad with screen shots of GoFundMe pages of people trying to pay for medical expenses. That could be hours and hours long.
