BERNIECARE: Sanders Insists Universal Healthcare ‘NOT CRAZY,’ Current System Killing 'Ordinary People’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.19.18

Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his demands for a universal healthcare system throughout the United States Wednesday; saying his ‘Medicare for All’ program is “not a crazy idea.”

“Medicare for All is not a crazy idea,” tweeted the self-described Democratic Socialist. “What’s crazy is that our health care system is designed to make as much profit for insurance and pharma executives as possible, while ordinary people die because they can’t afford the care and medicine they need.”

Sanders and fellow Democrats have re-issued their calls for a ‘Medicare for All’ system in recent weeks; likely setting the stage for a key policy pledge heading into the 2020 presidential election.

BERNIE’S BLUFF: Sanders Claims ‘Medicare for All’ Would ‘SAVE $2 TRILLION’

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders refused to accept a recent study that showed his “medicare for all” program would cost US taxpayers over $32 trillion; releasing a new video that claims universal healthcare would actually save $2 trillion over ten years.

Sanders released the video on social media just hours after a George Mason University study estimated the astronomical price-tag associated with the potential proposal; finding it would likely cost over $32.6 trillion.

“The study shows that  ‘Medicare for All’ would save the American people $2 trillion over a ten year period… That’s what was in the study,” said Sanders.

CORTEZ: US Healthcare is ‘Terrible,’ Medicare for All Will SAVE $5.1 TRILLION

Incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in on the current state of the US healthcare system over the weekend; saying the country “lags behind the modern world” and a ‘Medicare for All’ program would ultimately save over $5 trillion.

“Reminder to my fellow millennials to get your act together & buy insurance before tonight’s deadline. Is open enrollment a pain? Yes. Is it expensive? Yes. But it’s WAY better than being uninsured (been there) & reason enough to fight for #MedicareForAll,” she tweeted.

“It’s important to be honest about the fact that US healthcare is terrible and lags far behind the modern world. The good news: #MedicareForAll can save the US $5.1 trillion over a decade while drastically cutting working-class Americans’ health spending,” she added.

Cortez found herself in hot-water from major media publications just days ago, when she claimed Pentagon spending-errors could largely pay for her universal healthcare proposals.
