Whether on the primary debate stage or during campaign events, you’ve likely heard the Democratic presidential hopefuls talking about Medicare for All. It’s a debate that’s at the heart of one of the biggest campaign issues: how to ensure more Americans have access to affordable health care.

There are also questions about how to pay for their plans and whether or not coverage should include all residents.
