Something like Medicare-for-America is probably possible depending on how much of it can be done via reconciliation in the Senate. That's kind of why I think it's worthwhile to at least start with Bernie's maximalist Medicare-for-All proposal and to then see how much of a leftwing healthcare policy we can wind up with.

It all comes down to prioritization, though. The next Democratic president will probably prioritize climate change over healthcare, unless of course that crazy Texas lawsuit hobbles the ACA and consequently forces healthcare to be the top priority.
