Last night’s Democratic presidential debates included a discussion on healthcare reform.

Perhaps one of the most notable moments was when former Maryland congressman John Delaney questioned the feasibility of Medicare for all and Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren came back with sharp responses.

But neither Sanders or Warren addressed Delaney’s criticism of their plan. 

To grapple with the various strategies candidates presented at last night’s debates for implementing Medicare for all, Larry sits down with three healthcare experts.

We want to hear your thoughts on what the candidates had to say about healthcare last night at 866-893-KPCC.
