While it's not the first time he's talked about, it seems to be the first time in the presidential campaign that he's made it a major issue. Every 1st world country except the United States has universal health care, and Medicare For All would put us on par with the rest of the free world. Conservatives have gone back to the argument of "I don't want higher taxes", but our government spending is far more than countries that do have universal health care because we let things get out of control in the health care industry. I remember hearing Bill O'Reilly claim he'd move to Ireland if Sanders becomes president. I hope ol' Bill enjoys his universal health care there.
