And his plan IS better than Warren’s….
Sanders wants the record to show the his plan is MORE progressive than the recently rolled out Elizabeth Warren plan….
Neither single payer/medicar for All healthcare plans have a prayer of enactment…
But BOTH candidates are vying for the progressive vote that is important at the beginning of the Democratic nomination race….
Sen. Bernie Sanders defended his Medicare for All plan on the campaign trail in Iowa, telling ABC News that it’s “much more progressive in terms of protecting the financial well being of middle income families” than Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s plan, which she unveiled last week.
Why it matters: Warren has frequently said she’s “with Bernie” on Medicare for All, but the health care truce between two of the most progressive candidates in the race seemingly broke with Warren’s newly released plan.
