Obama voices support for Medicare for all

Former U.S. President Barack Obama touted his support for Medicare-for-all legislation during a speech Sept. 7 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, according to The Hill.

Mr. Obama supported single-payer healthcare during his time representing Illinois in the Senate, though he rejected the notion as president. Currently, 16 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored the Medicare-for-all legislation proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

"Democrats aren't just running on good, old ideas like a higher minimum wage. They're running on good, new ideas like Medicare for all," said Mr. Obama, according to The Hill.
