Biden has a solid lead among New Hampshire Democrats

When Bernie Sanders steps to the lectern Wednesday to reintroduce his Medicare for All Act, he will do so as a senator, just as he did when he introduced a resolution to end American military involvement in the Yemen war or when he shepherded legislation to improve veterans' health care.

"Health care is a human right, not a privilege", he declared. "He's now in third place in New Hampshire, and he came from relative obscurity".

At the same time, Shaheen says the Medicare for All idea has helped "reignite an urgently needed debate about reaching universal health care coverage".

Five Democratic presidential candidates - including New Jersey U.S. Sen.

Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar said.

She supports a so-called public option, versions of which would allow Americans to buy into Medicare or Medicaid. Sanders was in first with 24 percent, and five other candidates were in double digits: Beto O'Rourke (16 percent), Harris (15), Cory Booker (12), Pete Buttigieg (12) and Elizabeth Warren (11 percent).

In 2016, he bought a vacation home in North Hero, Vermont, on Lake Champlain, paying $575,000 through a trust called the Islands Family Trust.

He supports some of the progressive proposals that have surfaced in the Democratic primary race, such as expanding the Supreme Court and doing away with the Electoral College. Several other Democrats have released theirs, including Sens.

Big tax increases would be needed to finance such a system.

Sanders's proposal would leave medical providers, such as doctors and hospitals, in private control.

With Sanders' idea returning to the forefront, Republicans have a fresh opportunity to slam his plan as too costly and unworkable.

Under Medicare for All, the federal government rather than private companies would cover all Americans.

She touted Trump's "free market policies" as a better alternative.

Sanders also referenced his November 2018 best-seller, "Where We Go From Here: Two Years in the Resistance" as the reason for his comfortable financial status.

The party's eventual 2016 nominee, Hillary Clinton, dismissed Sanders' vision as impractical, given how hard it was to pass President Barack Obama's less ambitious Affordable Care Act in 2010.

Sanders' congressional pension means he will likely receive more than $121,000 a year when he leaves the Senate, according to a formula provided by the Congressional Research Service.

The New York Times first reported Sanders' definitive plans to release his returns by Tax Day.

Biden's support also remains strong in early voting states, reports Politico, after party leaders in said they do not believe the controversy about his interactions is enough to damage his candidacy, but they do wish he would quit joking about it. Just over half of those polled, 51%, identified as somewhat or very liberal, while 27% said they were moderate Democrats, with 18% polled considered themselves as either very conservative or somewhat conservative Democrats.

The Political Economy Research Institute at the University of MA at Amherst estimated that Medicare for All would cut health care spending by around 10 percent to $2.9 trillion.
