Bernie Sanders admitted on CNN this week, that there “will be pain” involved if he gets his way and America transitions to a single payer healthcare system. Tell us something we don’t know, Bernie!
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Sanders on Transition to Single-Payer Health Care System: ‘There Will Be Pain’
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) acknowledged Thursday “there will be pain” with a transition to his dream of a single-payer health care system in the United States.
After CNN host Chris Cuomo said Sanders would “destroy the profit model” of the health care industry with his “Medicare for all” model, Sanders retorted his plan was not a radical one.
“The function of a rational health care system is to provide health care to all people in a cost-effective way,” Sanders said.
He said hospital workers in the “billing” department would lose their jobs under his system…
“We are an aging population,” he added. “We need more people working with our older people. We will create more jobs under a rational Medicare-for-all system than currently exists. There will be a transition, just in the same way, Chris, as we have to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel. We create more jobs, but there will be pain, and you got to deal with that pain.”
