Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI)

Not so long ago, the idea of “Medicare for All” was relegated to the world of the far left and candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

One of them is Michigan Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn).

Dingell joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to talk about her support for the concept — which she says is nothing new for her or American politics.
