Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) have reintroduced their Medicare for All bill, with more than half of the Democratic caucus signed on and some clinicians groups such as the National Nurses Union also coming out in support of the measure.

While the legislation doesn't have enough support to pass the House, let alone the Senate, the proponents of the single-payer bill maintain that the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the deep flaws in the US healthcare system, providing new momentum to the Medicare for All grassroots campaign.

...Among the 109 cosponsors of the legislation, notably, is Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA), assistant Speaker of the House.
