Bernie Sanders: ‘I Believe that Healthcare for All Is a Human Right!’

‘We are the only major country on Earth that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
SANDERS:"We are the only major country on Earth that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right, something that I passionately believe in. I believe that health care for all is a human right. I would have hoped that we would be working together to figure out what is a complicated issue as to how we could move forward to guarantee health care to all people in a cost-effective way. But that is not what we are debating today. let us be very clear -- the republican plan, their budget plan, lays the groundwork for ending the affordable care act, which will remove tens of millions of Americans from the health insurance they get. now, there is nothing wrong with change. we can always improve. I would hope that during the course of this debate, my republican friends who want to repeal the affordable care act will come down and tell us what their plan is, how, in fact, they are going to provide."
