"Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced at a town hall recently that she’ll be co-sponsoring Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) upcoming single-payer health care bill.
Talking to 700 people at a church in Oakland, California, Harris became the first Senate Democrat to publicly announce her support for Sanders’s legislation, which is expected to be released in mid-September.
“I’ll break some news: I intend to co-sponsor the Medicare-for-All bill because it's just the right thing to do,” said Harris, who is widely seen as a leading Democratic presidential candidate for 2020. She added with a laugh: “Somebody should tell my staff.”
Sanders’s staff is still putting the finishing touches on the legislation, but it is largely expected to resemble the one from his 2016 presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton was dismissive of that proposal, saying single-payer would “never, ever happen.”*
