Unfiltered: Health Care Reform
By Bernie Sanders
“Bernie’s straight forward, simple English, is an inspiration to what People representative government should be about. Listen to the video and get a clear understanding of what needs to be done with health care in this country.” Dave Gregory
One of the reasons that I am a strong proponent of a single-payer, Medicare-for-all proposal is that it is much less complicated than what we are going to end up with in Congress. A single-payer approach saves hundreds of billions of dollars a year because you don’t end up with thousands of different health insurance programs appealing to all different kinds of people and costing a fortune to administer. I am going to continue the fight for single-payer. I am cautiously optimistic that we may end up with legislation that will allow states to go forward with single-payer if they want to.
