[Ed. – ‘Medicare for All’ is what Bernie Sanders is calling his new push for single payer healthcare (aka socialized medicine). Sen. Mazie Hinoro (D-Hawaii) wants to take the plan on step further and cover illegal aliens.]

It’s not going to just happen because we are standing here united under the principle that health care is a right, not a privilege. The long road ahead is what is going to inform our actions over the next number of months. And truly, for us to achieve health care as a right, not a privilege, is going to require all of us and the millions of people out there who care just as much as you all do and for all of our families, every American citizen. And I should mention immigrants, people who are in this country, 11 million undocumented people, 800,000 DACA participants who are about to be deported in the next six months. All the people in this country should have health care as a right, not a privilege.
