Sanders: 'Of Course Obamacare Has Serious Problems'

Sanders discussed his Medicare for All proposal on Friday during an interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes, and said that Democrats need to bring people together around a progressive agenda versus the proposals of "right-wing extremists".

There is, however, no Plan B for the Republicans after the failure of the health care bill.

Sanders, for his part, is following through on the gameplan he proposed on Cooper's show ― he reportedly told an assembled crowd at a Hardwick, Vermont town hall on Saturday that he plans to introduce a Medicare-for-all bill in the U.S. Senate in the near future.

Sen. Sanders also highlighted a bill he hopes will lower drug costs, saying, "I've introduced legislation that would allow pharmacists and distributors to buy lower-cost medicine from around the world", according to the report.

Cutting off Bash with a smile, Sanders said, "Look, what rational people would say is, 'What are the problems?" "It was a disaster piece of legislation, primarily created to provide $300 billion to the top 2%, throw 24 million people off health insurance, raising premiums for older workers in a very very significant way".

"President Trump, come on board".

Democrat Representatives Keith Ellison and Ro Khanna have both also referenced "Medicare for all" and a single-payer system in recent days. Let's deal with the greed of the pharmaceutical industry. The doctors have pointed out that a single-payer healthcare system would offer all of the advantages that Bernie Sanders has pointed out, with none of the drawbacks of Obamacare. "Let's work together", Sanders said.

But even for those in the US with employer-provided health care, costs can be high.

"Let us do, among other things, a public option".

"We have grave concerns about the potentially disastrous impact of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on hundreds of thousands of low income New Yorkers and the organizations that serve them", said the letter sent by Eric Goldstein, the CEO of the UJA-Federation of ny.

And in the wake of the failure last week of the GOP's Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), sometimes dubbed "Trumpcare", a push immediately began on the left for a single-payer health care system, which has always been the preferred outcome for progressives. Freedom Caucus members felt that the legislation was too similar to the Affordable Care Act and that it would not do enough to contain premium costs.

The president blamed Democrats for not backing the bill.
