Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday unveiled legislation that would transform Medicare into a universal health insurance program, laying out an ambitious expansion of coverage. His plan, unveiled with the support of 16 Senate Democrats, sketches out a total makeover of the nation’s health insurance system. The legislation would replace nearly all private health plans with a government-run version of Medicare that would guarantee coverage to every single American. "Today we begin the debate vital to the future of our economy as to why it is that in the United States we spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation on Earth, and yet we have 28 million people without health insurance," said Sanders in a speech. The effort serves as an ideological marker for progressives, who have quickly corralled support from prominent Democrats for a government-run system amid backlash to the GOP’s Obamacare repeal effort.
