Sanders' thoughts on Trump discovering the complexity of health care

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will most likely focus on better access to private health care, Sanders says that Obamacare should definitely not be repealed, but instead, improved.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."

Sanders

While Trump would probably disagree with everything here, that's exactly what he did. Of course, he would probably say that he didn't fire anyone, but Sessions submitted his resignation letter himself. Which is true, but we all know how things like this are being done. He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
