Two Democrats in Congress initially refused to cosponsor John Conyers 'Medicare for All' bill, H.R. 676—Brad Sherman and Denny Heck. After putting pressure on Rep. Sherman, he eventually succumbed to pressure from progressive activists and cosponsored H.R. 676. However, Rep. Denny Heck refused, and consequently, he's now being primaried by a progressive namely due to his refusal to back H.R 676. Let this be a lesson to corporate Democrats; one Democrat saved himself by cosponsoring H.R. 676, the other is getting primaried for not backing it... still think progressives were joking when we told you 'Medicare for All' was a litmus test? Didn't think so.
