House Democrats on Wednesday rolled out an ambitious proposal to extend Medicare to all Americans, eliminate private insurance and drastically overhaul reimbursement for doctors and hospitals.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D- Wash.) told reporters that the goal of the Medicare for All Act of 2019, which has more than 100 co-sponsors, is to completely overhaul the U.S. healthcare system and convert it to a government-run entity.
