While California Democrats killed a state-based initiative due to the bill have no funding mechanism, more and more Democrats seem to be either supporting it outright, or saying it should be at least considered for the near future. Former President Jimmy Carter is now onboard the single-payer train (via WSJ):
Former President Jimmy Carter said he believed the U.S. would in time adopt a fully government-run health insurance system, or “Medicare for all,” in remarks ahead of his Sunday school class here.
“I think eventually we’ll have a single-payer system,” said the former U.S. leader, a Democrat, speaking in front of a full congregation and hundreds of visitors.
Mr. Carter had previously said he was disappointed the 2010 health law passed under President Barack Obama had not gone further.
