Klein pointed out that many senators, including a number of potential 2020 presidential candidates, have signed onto Sanders' plan.
Several of Casey's fellow Democrats who will be on the ballot next year also have expressed some reservations, with Missouri Sen.
So, as Sanders rolls out his Medicare-for-all bill, two fights begin: one between Democrats and Republicans, another between Democrats and Democrats. Democrats should invest time and resources in figuring out the best way to counter those arguments, especially since we know all too well how much people fear change when it comes to their health care.
Republicans have castigated it as the ultimate in government-run health care.
"I'm not seeing any evidence single payer is attractive to the swing voters Democrats would need to win control of the House and Senate", said Jim Hobart, a GOP political consultant.
He went on to say that while access to health care has improved, "it would be terrific to have a simple, seamless system where, exclusively by virtue of living in America, you know that you will get the care you need".
"I think the American people are sick and exhausted of filling out forms", Sanders said.
Sanders' bill faces nearly impossible odds in the GOP-controlled Congress, but after the epic collapse of the Republican effort to kill the Affordable Care Act, it is a debate that progressives like Sanders and Warren are eager to have.
The single-payer plan Sanders promoted during his presidential campaign would have cost almost $1.4 trillion annually, which he said would be covered by a 2.2 income tax on all Americans and a 6.2 percent tax on employers, as well as other tax increases on the wealthy.
Despite representing a state President Trump won, Tammy Baldwin continues to side with radical liberals and support a single-payer health care system that would decimate Wisconsin families and businesses. On the other hand, when they offered reasons to support single payer (it would guarantee universal coverage, it would save administrative costs), support climbed as high as 72 percent. Namely, single-payer is already popular with the Democratic rank and file.
Still, the effort indicates the Democratic party may be moving left on health care.
