For Dems, a Stepping Stone to Common Ground on Health Care
ABC News

Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for all” plan seems even less likely now that he’s all but out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, but there’s a way that he and Hillary Clinton could still find common ground on health care.

It would let Democrats rally around the cause of government-run health care without committing to the politically perilous course of trying to change the entire U.S. system at once.

The idea is a “public option” for states to set up their own insurance plans that compete against private industry.
