Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made a major announcement on Thursday regarding a new bill she will stand behind.
Warren announced that she will be co-sponsoring Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) “Medicare for All” bill.
“I believe it’s time to take a step back and ask: what is the best way to deliver high quality, low cost health care to all Americans?” Warren said.
She continued, stating, “Everything should be on the table — and that’s why I’m co-sponsoring Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All bill that will be introduced later this month.”
Warren then explained the inclusiveness of the bill.
“Everyone is covered. Nobody goes broke paying a medical bill. Families don’t have to bear the costs of heartbreaking medical disasters of their own.”
Warren praised ObamaCare in her statement, but noted, “there’s so much more we could do right now to bring the costs of quality health care for every American.”
Warren joins Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif) in supporting the bill.
Last month, Harris gave her support of the bill, saying, “I intend to co-sponsor the ‘Medicare for All’ bill because it’s just the right thing to do. It’s not just about what is morally and ethically right, it also makes sense just from a fiscal standpoint.”
