In Trump states, Sanders tries to push Democrats to the left on health care
DETROIT — It looked just like a campaign launch, from the line winding around the Fellowship Chapel Church, to the tailgaters giving away hot dogs, to the 2,000 voters who eventually packed inside.But when Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) and Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) arrived, there were no waving signs. They were there to kick off the push for universal health care, with legislation queued up for September, and no expectation that the Republican-controlled Congress would pass it.
“Every major country in the world, they’ve already got it,” said Conyers.
“More and more people agree with us,” said Sanders.
