Description

At its June 24th, 2016 meeting, the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee voted 7-to-6 AGAINST including support for single-payer healthcare, despite having the backing of 81% of Democrats. When Neera Tanden proposed alternative language that simply supported healthcare as a right, and thanked Bernie Sanders for his advocacy, Cornel West called her out.
