Thought for the Day

“Living is a form of not being sure, not
knowing what next or how. The moment you
know how, you begin to die a little. The artist

— Agnes de Mille, American dancer-choreographer

On health care, Dems shifting to offense

By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar

WASHINGTON — Democrats are shifting

to offense on health care, emboldened by
successes in defending the Affordable Care
Act. They say their ultimate goal is a gov-
ernment guarantee of affordable coverage
for all.
With Republicans unable to agree on a
vision for health care, Democrats are debat-
ing ideas that range from single-payer, gov-
ernment-run care for all, to new insurance
options anchored in popular programs like
Medicare or Medicaid. There’s also wide-
spread support for authorizing Medicare to
negotiate prescription drug prices, an idea
once advocated by candidate Donald Trump,
which has languished since he was elected

the options during the 2018 campaign sea-

remains a top priority for the public, partic-
ularly for Democrats and independents.
