The Wall Street Journal: Growing number of Democrats join Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health-care push

A growing number of Democrats have endorsed a single-payer health bill to be proposed Wednesday by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, embracing a bigger government role in health care after years of opposing that approach.

Supporters of Sanders’s bill include several Democratic senators considering a bid for the Oval Office in 2020: Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

In the House, 117 Democrats are co-sponsoring a plan by Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.) that would let people of all ages get Medicare — more than double the number who signed onto a similar bill two years ago.
