Vermont Senator and self-described Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders slammed President Trump’s “lies” about his Medicare for All program this week; saying the Commander-in-Chief misled voters in a recently published op-ed piece.
Sanders penned his own article for USA Today Thursday, doubling-down on his claims the universal healthcare system would -in fact- save Americans money and lower healthcare costs.
The Senator says Americans have President Trump’s plan on one side and, “On the other side is my ‘Medicare for All’ plan supported by 16 senators and 122 House members. It would guarantee everyone could get the health care they need without going into debt at far lower cost than the current dysfunctional system.”
“Study after study shows that when we eliminate private insurance premiums, deductibles and co-payments, the average American will pay substantially less for health care than he or she currently pays,” writes Sanders.
An independent study released earlier this year predicted Sanders’ potential plan could cost upwards of $32 trillion over a ten-year period; likely increasing after that.

Sanders called for another massive federal entitlement program on social media this week, saying “Child care should not cost parents more than sending their kids to college. We need a revolution in child care in this country.”
