Here’s What Bernie Sanders Wants Done On Health Care Over The Next Two Years

February 22, 2023

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) understands that America won’t have single-payer health care anytime soon.

So what does Sanders want the federal government to do on health care over the next two years?

Sanders laid out his priorities in a recent interview with NPR.

Here is what he said:


What I want to see, a Medicare-for-all system, ain’t going to happen. No Republicans support it. Half the Democrats won’t support it.

Republicans understand that in red states it is very hard often for people to access a doctor.
