2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said on Monday night that under his progressive “Medicare for all” proposal, the Americans would not be able to keep up, to do existing health insurance that they wanted the private plans, even if, this.

The Vermont senator, a CNN town hall said that the health care should be a “human right” and that the United States “shameful” was not the only major country on earth, “to guarantee health care for all people.” He argued that the only “cost-effective” opportunity to all Americans, the health insurance would be a “Medicare for all” single-payer program.”

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer then he pointed to statistics that half of Americans get their health insurance through their employer, and a recent Gallup survey found that 70 percent of those that your insurance from your employer.

“Will these people be able to their health insurance plans, private plans through their employers, if there is a ‘Medicare for all” program that you support?” Blitzer asked.

“No,” Sanders responded to the middle, as a question, he shook his head. “What is in your plans the color of your map is to change. So, instead of a Blue Cross/Blue Shield card, instead of a United Health Insurance card, you are gonna have a Medicare card.”

The self-proclaimed democratic socialist elaborated that under his plan, could the Americans go to every doctor or hospital you wanted and would not have to pay”, not private insurance premiums.” He also said seniors enhanced benefits” including dental care, hearing AIDS and glasses would get “.


“So, if you want your health insurance plan, you will not be able to keep your health insurance?” Blitzer followed.

“Wolf, no one will hear you, the business with the ‘sympathy’ of their insurance, which, by the way, the employer will change every year,” Sanders continued, “the people like their doctors, like the hospitals, as the care they get.”


“But if you wanted to, an additional private health insurance, “Medicare for all”, would you be able to buy the kind of health insurance?” the CNN anchor said the senator.

“If you want, our law applies to all health needs. “Sanders emphasized. “If people want cosmetic surgery, for example, Yes, of course you can have a private health insurance. But, our bill will cover all of comprehensive health care.”


Last Month, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., made a lot of headlines, while another CNN town hall after the 2020 candidate called to “eliminate” private insurance, and press the “Medicare for all.”

“Well, look, the idea is that everyone gets access to medical care. And, you don’t have to go through the process by an insurance company that you said you the approval, go through the paperwork, all of the delay, the require,” Harris’s Jake Tapper. “Who of us has not been in the situation where you have to be on a permit waiting, and the doctor says, ‘Well, I don’t know if your insurance is going to cover.’ We get rid of. Let’s move on.”
