Nothing Dysfunctional About US Healthcare – Period


Sen. Bernie Sanders took to the Senate floor last week to proclaim that the American people are deeply dissatisfied with the healthcare system. Citing a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, the Vermont socialist lamented that “just 12% of the American people believe that health care in general is handled very well or extremely well in the United States.”


Unsurprisingly, he then segued to his longstanding call for abolishing private health insurance and forcing all Americans into a government-run health plan he calls Medicare for All. His latest legislative bid for bringing that about has languished in the Senate since he introduced it in May.
