The battle over “Medicare for all” arose again Wednesday night as Democratic candidates sparred over what kind of healthcare overhaul is practical and politically feasible.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2019-11-20/democratic-debate-medicare-for-all 

Pete Buttigieg raised the issue unprompted, arguing that his policy of “Medicare for all who want it” would be “a governing strategy we can unify the American people around.”  https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2019-11-20/democratic-debate-medicare-for-all 

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whose support for Medicare for all has drawn fire from her more moderate opponents, played up her recently released plan, emphasizing that the massive overhaul she backs would not happen immediately.

Sen. Bernie Sanders vowed to introduce a bill for single-payer healthcare within the first week of his presidency.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2019-11-20/democratic-debate-medicare-for-all 

Former Vice President Joe Biden touted his own plan to expand on the Affordable Care Act by including a public insurance option.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-biden-health-care-plan-20190715-story.html
