Bernie on Medicare for All: ‘No’ More Private Insurance & ‘Yes You Will’ Be Paying More in Taxes
SANDERS: “We are spending twice as much per capita on health care as the people of any other country, and in many way our healthcare outcomes are not as good. So, we are paying for it. What our bill does -- and sometimes -- you know, we are up against the insurance companies and the drug companies who are going to spend tens of millions of dollars trying to defeat us. But what people should understand is that Medicare for all does is that eliminates private health insurance premiums. You're not going to be paying that. You're not going to be paying copayments. You're not going to be paying deductibles. You are going to be seeing your prescription drug cost, in my view come down by 50 percent. Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you will."
