https://democracynow.org – As Republicans continue their push for their healthcare plan, polls show support for a nationwide single-payer healthcare system is growing. At least one poll shows a full third of Americans are now in favor of a national single-payer system, while 60 percent believe the federal government should be responsible for healthcare. In one state, the California Senate passed a single-payer bill, but the House speaker killed it in the Assembly. We get an update from Michael Lighty, with National Nurses United and the California Nurses Association.
