Sen. Sanders Fires Back At Trump: Health Care For Every American ‘Is Not A Curse’




Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) fired back at President Trump for calling his “Medicare-for-All” health-care bill as “a curse on the U.S. & its people,” saying that health care for everyone “is not a curse” and that the bill was “exactly what we should be doing.”

“No Mr. President, providing health care to every man, woman and child as a right is not a curse, it’s exactly what we should be doing,” Sanders tweeted. “What is a curse is your support for throwing 23 million off health insurance. That’s the curse and we won’t allow you to get away with it.”



Trump criticized Sanders’ single-payer legislation in a series of tweets Thursday, saying he would veto the bill “because I love our country and its people.”

The Hill added:

Sanders unveiled his “Medicare for all” plan on Wednesday to a crowded Senate hearing room. The bill has attracted 16 top Democrats as co-sponsors, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

“Our opponents on this issue have the money and they have the power, but if millions of people across this country stand up, get involved in the political process and fight back, I have no doubt — none whatsoever — that this nation, sooner than people believe, will, in fact, pass a ‘Medicare for all’ single-payer system, and finally, finally, health care will be a right for all in the United States of America,” Sanders said.
