Bernie Sanders: Thousands Of Americans Will Die Because Of 'Barbaric' Trumpcare Plan

U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will host a health care rally this Sunday in Charleston, West Virginia.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Sanders about his statement Thursday that the Republican health care plan is the "most harmful piece of legislation" he's seen in his lifetime. He was also a Bernie Sanders supporter, and when Sanders learned this, he spoke out against his supporter's actions, saying, "Violence is unacceptable in our society".

In response to the Republicans' argument that Obamacare is destined to fail due to increasing premiums and healthcare costs, Sanders admitted that the healthcare law is flawed, but argued that the GOP is deliberately "sabotaging" it, and that the replacement GOP bill would reverse all the gains made by President Barack Obama's signature legislation.

"If you throw 23 million people off of health insurance, if you cut Medicaid by over $800 billion, there is no question, but that thousands of Americans will die", Sanders said. It would repeal tax increases on higher-income people, medical companies and others that had financed expanded coverage.

The four say there are provisions that are an improvement to the current health care system.

Leaders in Congress are hoping to have a vote on a new health care bill before the July 4 holiday. But I won't go out shooting Republicans. "And they don't hear much coming out of Washington", she said. There are some promising changes to reduce premiums in the individual insurance market, but I continue to have real concerns about the Medicaid policies in this bill, especially those that impact drug treatment at a time when OH is facing an opioid epidemic. If not, I will oppose it.
