Ralph Nader is calling on Senator Bernie Sanders to introduce a Senate single payer bill before debating Senator Ted Cruz on CNN Tuesday.

“I hear that you will be debating Senator Ted Cruz next Tuesday on CNN in prime time where you will seek to defend Obamacare against Republican assault,” Nader wrote to Sanders in a letter dated February 3, 2017. (external - login to view)

“You have said in the past that ‘I don’t believe in Obamacare’ and that Obamacare is ‘a good Republican program.’ So, I’m not sure why you continue to defend it.”

“As you know, under Obamacare, tens of millions remain uninsured or underinsured.”

“Deductibles are expanding and networks are narrowing – not to mention numbing complexities, higher co-pays and higher premiums.”

“In 2013, you introduced a single payer bill in the Senate (S. 1782) – with no co-sponsors.”

“Throughout the 2016 campaign, you powerfully made the case all over the country before massive audiences for a more efficient single payer Medicare for All – without deductibles, co-pays, premiums – plus free choice of doctor and hospital.”

“But you have reportedly decided not to introduce or push for single payer in the Congress this year.”

“Your health policy adviser has privately told some single payer activists you will not introduce a single payer bill into the Senate this year because the Democratic leadership believes that such a bill will get in the way of electing a Democratic Senate in 2018.”

“Even without the Democratic Party or the labor unions making a major public educational push, a December 2015 national Kaiser public opinion poll found that 58 percent of adults in the US supported single payer – including 81 percent of Democrats, 60 percent of Independents, and 30 percent of Republicans.”

“I urge you to drop your defensive stance and introduce the equivalent of HR 676 – the gold standard single payer bill in the House of Representatives (with 56 co-sponsors so far) – into the Senate this week and come out swinging for the bill next week.”
“How many of your millions of supporters would not want you to do this?” Nader asked.

Jake Tapper and chief political correspondent Dana Bash will moderate a Town Hall Debate between Sanders and Cruz on the future of Obamacare at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, February 7. The 90-minute event will be held at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Ted Cruz introduces "EL CHAPO Act" to pay for the wall

Senator Ted Cruz wants to use assets seized from drug lords such as El Chapo, the Mexican kingpin who was recently extradited to the U.S., to pay for border security and the border wall.

  • The idea: U.S. prosecutors are seeking $14 billion in drug profits and other assets from El Chapo. They also routinely seize the assets of other drug dealers and traffickers.
  • The Cruz quote: "Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border."
  • The acronym's meaning: Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order
  • Why it matters: President Trump is trying to figure out how to pay for his border wall, which will require American taxpayers to pay up for the bill. This could be a way around that issue.
