"Progressive Democrats are pushing for a vote on a controversial health-care bill after the party takes control of the House early next year.

But the left’s push for 'Medicare for all' legislation would likely divide Democrats and pose a headache for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who is poised to become Speaker in the next Congress.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), who is co-chair of the Medicare for All Caucus in the House, told supporters on an organizing call Tuesday night that simply expressing support for the idea is not enough.

'When we have that majority, we need to make sure that we put it to use,' she said.

Yet, many other House Democrats, including members of the leadership, are not on board with the idea of government-run universal health insurance."

    • +Ahsim Nreiziev “They aren’t. The ones that do are coming for elective procedures like boob jobs because Canada’s healthcare system prioritizes people who need care.”

      Well, you certainly didn’t need a citation for this claim, did you?…
      Your basis is ridiculous .

  1. Establishment Democrats don’t even know this is a takeover but they’re going to find out pretty soon. Time to weed out the riff raff

  2. AOC and others who aren’t beholden to special interests are a joy to watch take on special interests like the corrupt health insurance industry. Ron Kind totally sucks.

  3. Introduce the bill, and in two years get rid of anyone who opposes it, regardless of party affiliation. Do not let Pelosi and Schumer highjack our victory for their wall street masters.

  4. Pelosi and Schumer are SPINELESS cowards who don’t seek the answer to “What do Americans need?” but rather “Where’s my check?”

  5. if the dems know their political game, they will pass a beautifully populist single-payer bill and let the senate block it. that will start a fire and it’ll be fun to see how the senators, perhaps even including some dem senators, twist their way out. corp dems should be assured that they can safely vote for it since it’ll never pass senate. if dem can’t even pass that in the house, it also serves as an indicator on how much their balls are in the hand of big donors

    • And before everyone attacks me saying “But they DO make videos like this”. Not enough in my opinion. It should be almost 24/7 policy substance with only small amounts of Trump tweets/SJW/Russiagate bullshit.

      Look at the policies Americans cared most about: healthcare, immigration, money in politics etc.

  6. If we took their free tax payer funded health care and they had to fend for themselves in this awful system, they might change their tune if they weren’t paid enough to cover all those bills. If we can’t have Medicare for all, they shouldn’t have free healthcare paid for by us.

  7. Every advanced country in the world has Universal health care, including Australia, Russia, Israel, Canada, China, New Zealand…in fact, most countries have Universal health care. America is on the list of countries that includes Syria, Afghanistan, Haiti…that don’t!

  8. That statement is exactly why Pelosi should not be Speaker. Despite the assaults against her opponents, it has NOTHING to do with her being a woman. It has EVERYTHING to do with pledging to work with Trump. As a Democratic voter, if I wanted people who would work with Trump, I would have voted for Republicans. Ffs.

  9. The press leadership doesn’t want Medicare for all because it would deplete the advertising revenue from the medical insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

  10. Medicare for all NOW! – sick and tired of my health being at the expense of million dollar insurance companies CEO’s huge salaries. 65 million dollars a year at the expense of my health. Ridiculous.

  11. we have money to give foreign aid to israel for their universal healthcare program but we don’t have the money for universal healthcare at home.
    What happened to America First? lol.

  12. This video is the reason why I watch TYT. Love the passion, the clear message laced with facts, the way they hold those in the establishment accountable. So glad that we have fighters on our side.
