Health Care Candidate Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Appear to Know What a Deductible Is

‘Per what? Per month, or per year, or what?’

“Do you have any deductibles in your plan?” Sanders asked, and when the man told him it was $500, the senator asked “Per what? Per month, or per year, or what?”

Health insurance deductibles are per year, a thing that a candidate basing most of his candidacy on health care ought to know.

Sanders then delivered the now-familiar answer that the savings on out-of-pocket expenses will be greater than the tax increases, “and added and to the degree that your employer saves money, especially for union workers, our view is that the workers should benefit from those savings. Okay?”
