Statement by Bernie Sanders Calling for No Middle Ground on Medicare for All
WASHINGTON - Sen. Bernie Sanders issued the following statement Friday demanding that all candidates be clear about their stance on Medicare for All:
"Let us all be very clear about this. If you support Medicare for All, you have to be willing to end the greed of the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. That means boldly transforming our dysfunctional system by ending the use of private health insurance, except to cover non-essential care like cosmetic surgeries. And it means guaranteeing health care to everyone through Medicare with no premiums, no deductibles and no copays. It is imperative that we remain steadfast in our commitment to guarantee health care as a human right and no longer allow private corporations to make billions of dollars in profits off Americans' health care."
