A health care strategy for Bernie Sanders
San Francisco Chronicle

The upcoming California primary offers an opportunity for Sen. Bernie Sanders to add substance to his call for a single-payer health care system with little risk of losing voters because broad support exists here for universal health care. Indeed, our California Legislature approved such a plan and I am the nurse who wrote it. I applaud Sanders for injecting meaningful health reform into the campaign and offer six policies to better define his plan and provide a foundation for negotiating the Democratic Party platform at the convention.
