"We want to be more like a startup, and we want to build in a smart way and a steady way". "So many people, even today, feel that they don't belong".

Sen. Bernie Sanders brushed off criticism of his millionaire status during an interview with The New York Times, also saying that his tax returns would be "a little bit more boring" than President Donald Trump's.

About half (49%) said it is very important to them that the Democrats nominate a candidate who supports "Medicare for All", 31% said it was that important for the party to nominate someone who supports the Green New Deal, and just 16% considered it very important to back a candidate who supports impeaching Trump.

Proponents of Medicare for All say it would close gaps in health-care coverage that leave 27 million Americans uninsured.

Sanders introduced his plan inside a crowded room in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, flanked by activists and medical industry professionals.

Two percent said they support Sen.

"The principles that will guide my campaign for president are simple enough to fit on a bumper sticker: freedom, security and democracy", he said.

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone Jr., D-6th Dist., whose panel has jurisdiction over the issue, said he instead will concentrate on shoring up the existing Affordable Care Act, which Trump and congressional Republicans have sought to repeal via legislation and through the courts.

Jets preseason schedule: Why Giants battle strangely leads off
Denver will wrap up preseason play at home against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, Aug. 29, at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. Head Coach John Harbaugh is planning to hold joint practices with the Jaguars and Eagles in advance of those preseason games.

This cycle, at least 10 other Democratic presidential hopefuls support some version of a single-payer plan, and four of Sanders's Senate colleagues eyeing the White House - Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of MA - have signed on to the bill that he is introducing in the chamber.

"Medicare-for-all is a dream". Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 4 percent and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, who was also there.

Retired Chicago journalist Renee Ferguson, who took in Buttigieg when he was participating in a journalism internship, said making "Buttigieg" a household name could be a difficulty.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) launched a fierce attack on "Medicare for all" on Tuesday in a speech to the American Hospital Association conference, urging the hospital officials to go to Capitol Hill and oppose the idea.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has sounded skeptical about Sanders' plan. They aim to reach that goal through various incremental steps, while preserving the traditional US mix of public and private insurance. "He's now in third place in New Hampshire, and he came from relative obscurity". About a quarter said they'd stick with the candidate who matched their views on the issues (24%).

"He represents a new generation of Democratic leadership". Putting a Democrat in the White House, she suggested, is the point. She said he is practical about what can be done but visionary about what needs to be done. "I gave birth four times".

It was a soundbite-ready moment - like several others he has enjoyed - that replayed throughout the week in American media.

"Health care is a human right, not a privilege", he declared. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., at 23 percent.
