2020 Democrats fight to claim Obama’s mantle on health care

by PETER SULLIVAN - The Hill  |  Published on August 15, 2019

Democratic presidential candidates are vying for former President Obama’s mantle on healthcare, arguing that he would support their stance in the raging debate over Medicare for All.

Obama remains enormously popular among Democrats, and his backing in the party’s divisive health care debate would be a one-of-a-kind boost for a candidate.

But Obama is not tipping his hand on the issue, careful not to wade into a crowded and contentious primary contest. His office also declined to comment for this story.

Statements and comments from his former advisers, though, have given fodder to both sides in the debate as the Democratic hopefuls latch onto any clues to argue that the former president is really on their side.
