Booker signs on to Sanders's 'Medicare-for-all' bill

The Hill:

Sen. Cory Booker is throwing his support behind a "Medicare for all" bill being introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), becoming the latest Democrat floated as a 2020 contender to back the legislation.

The New Jersey senator told NJTV News that he would sign on as a co-sponsor of the bill, which is scheduled to be rolled out on Wednesday.

"This is something thatís got to happen. ObamaCare was a first step in advancing this country, but I wonít rest until every American has a basic security that comes with having access to affordable health care," Booker told the New Jersey outlet.

He added that "you should not be punished because you are working-class or poor and be denied health care. I think health care should be a right to all."

1. Good for Booker

Will the attacks on him by Bernie-philes stop now?
