Sanders' thoughts on Trump discovering the complexity of health care


2017-02-28 03:45:55
President Trump said early this week that he just discovered that health care can be very complicated. Or has he put it, "Now, I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew health care could be so complicated."

When talking about the remark with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Bernie Sanders said that "Some of us who were sitting on the health education committee, who went to meeting after meeting after meeting, who heard from dozens of people, who stayed up night after night trying to figure out this thing, yeah we got a clue. When you provide health care in a nation of 320 million people, yeah, it is very, very complicated."

President Trump has promised to repeal and replace Obamacare, saying that it is a failure.

While the new great plan of the president will most likely focus on better access to private health care, Sanders says that Obamacare should definitely not be repealed, but instead, improved.

"We remain today, and let's not forget it, the only major country on Earth that doesn't guarantee health care to all people. We pay the highest prices by far for prescription drugs. Let's address those issues."
