posted by Hannity Staff - 2.11.19

Potential 2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand doubled-down on her calls for the total elimination of private insurance companies across the United States over the weekend; saying it should be “an urgent goal” for all Democrats.

Gillibrand was speaking on the Lovett or Leave It podcast when she was asked to weigh-in on the Democrats’ recent widespread support for ‘Medicare for All.’

“One of the debates we’ve had recently is around what happens to private insurance. Should ending private insurance as we know it be a Democratic Party goal and do you think it’s an urgent goal?” asked the interviewer.

“Oh yeah. It is a goal and an urgent goal. Let me explain. I ran on Medicare for All in 2006 in my upstate New York Republican district. The reason I ran on that message is because I listened first,” said Gillibrand.

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.
