“Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand intends to co-sponsor Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) Medicare-for-all bill, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the bill.
Gillibrand has been open about her support for a single-payer system at several recent town halls across New York.
The New York senator joins at least seven other senators who have recently announced their intention to co-sponsor the legislation. A source told Mic that Gillibrand has supported the legislation for some time now and intends to officially announce her support soon.
On Wednesday, Sanders plans to roll out the much-anticipated bill, alongside several co-sponsors.
Earlier on Monday, Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) both announced that they intended to co-sponsor the legislation.”
