Biden vs Bernie on healthcare

Biden says he supports a public Medicare option, plus increasing tax credits for those who choose it (or choose a plan on the gov exchange, I’d guess), and further expanding Medicaid so states can’t just turn it down and screw their people over. He has referred to it as ACA+ in the past, but that Medicare option is the big game changer. The insurance industry is gonna fight like hell to prevent that.

Bernie supports Medicare for all... or does he? I thought in the past he wanted full coverage single payer, which would go way beyond M4A and work more like the UK where you never see a bill at all.

My concern is: which plan actually has a chance to get through Congress?
