The video features former Presidents Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Franklin Roosevelt in addition to a handful of the 16 Democratic senators who are cosponsoring the bill.
"So I ask you to work with us at the grassroots level," Sanders says in the nearly three-minute ad. "Speak to your neighbors. Speak to your coworkers. Let us go forward and finally do what this country should have done a long time ago and that is to guarantee health care to all people."
Sanders' proposal would aim to eradicate much of the private insurance industry in favor of a government-ran system.
