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

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.
