Sanders: Tax Cut Bill Means 13 Million Americans Lose Health Insurance
SANDERS: "Meanwhile, over 180 million Americans will pay more in taxes. 13 million Americans as a result of this legislation will lose health insurance. Health care premiums are going up. We have a $1.4 trillion deficit as a result of this bill. And Paul Ryan is going around saying we have to offset the deficit by cutting social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. To answer your question, should we have focused on the needs of the middle class? We should have. But the bulk of the benefits in this legislation go to large profitable corporations and for millionaires and billionaires."
