Sen. Bernie Sanders will push his 'Medicare for all' proposal in a town hall meeting to air live online on Jan. 23, The Washington Post reports.

"We expect that we'll have a larger viewing audience for this live stream than we'd have if we'd run it on, say, CNN," Sanders, a Vermont independent, who is promoting a universal Medicare bill, told the newspaper.

"That's revolutionary. You can have this discussion even if the owners of the big media companies don't want to have it."

The Post said the 90-minute program will involve three segments: one on the current state of U.S. healthcare, one on the economic impact of universal Medicare and how single-payer healthcare works elsewhere in the world.

The special will be streamed from an auditorium in the Congressional Visitor Center in Washington, D.C.
