Nevada union opposes Sanders' 'Medicare for All' plan

A "politically powerful" union representing 130,000 culinary workers and their families opposes "Medicare for All," particularly the version of the plan Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is running on, according to The Nevada Independent.

The union is distributing flyers that say Mr. Sanders' plan would "end Culinary Healthcare" and "require Medicare for All," according to the report. By contrast, the flyers describe the version of Medicare for All being promoted by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as a plan to "replace Culinary Healthcare after 3-year [sic] transition or at end of collective bargaining agreements."

The union opposes single-payer plans that would require workers to drop the health insurance they've negotiated, which is among the best coverage in Nevada, according to the report. 

The state's Democratic primary is on Feb. 22. The union has not endorsed a candidate. Read the full story here
