Good episode? Give it some love!
More than 100 House Democrats on Wednesday, led by Rep. Pramila Jayapal,
unveiled their sweeping Medicare for All legislation. So what comes next
— and why is the health care industry so opposed to it?

First, POLITICO's Alice Miranda Ollstein joins Dan Diamond (starts at
the 1:05 mark) on Capitol Hill to explain the state of play.

Then Lauren Crawford Shaver, head of the Partnership for America's
Health Care Future (starts at the 9:00 mark), explains why her members
— groups like the American Medical Association and the American Hospital
Association — think Medicare for All and Democrats' other proposals are
non-starters.

REFERENCED ON THE SHOW

Democrats' Medicare for All bill, released this week, doesn't include a
price tag, Alice and POLITICO's Adam Cancryn wrote.

Jayapal appeared on "Pulse Check" in December 2018 to discuss her
Medicare for All plans.

The Partnership has been running digital ads against Medicare for All.
