Senate Dems Not Happy With THIS Radical Leftist Talking Point

Via The Washington Examiner:

Senate Democrats, increasingly bullish on their 2020 chances, want no part of “Medicare for all” proposals being pushed by far-left populist presidential contenders.

 Four recent polls show that a majority of Americans do not support the proposal, especially after finding out it would do away with their private health insurance.

Originally championed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and co-sponsored by fellow Democratic presidential primary contenders Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, and Cory Booker of New Jersey, the “Medicare for all” legislation is seen as a loser proposal that could hurt down-ballot Democratic races in both chambers. Sanders, a socialist, appears to stand alone in his full-throated and enduring support of the policy.

But it’s a particularly sensitive area in the Senate, where Democrats are looking to end the Republicans’ 53-47 majority. That discomfort shows through in the reaction of Harris to questions about “Medicare for all,” having seemed to support it in response to a Democratic debate question, only to reverse course after.
