Outgoing Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has been criticized by sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., about his comments to a health system fully funded by the government.
Liberal sen Bernie Sanders says outgoing Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is “absolutely wrong” for the statement that the change to a health system fully funded by the government is realistic.
The Vermont independent, who has to move to the United States to respond to socialized medicine, was asked to comments Schultz about the plan in another interview.
Schultz recently announced that he would depart, Starbucks and said he was considering “in the public service.” He said on CNBC that he was worried about the way “so many voices within the Democratic party have gone so far to the left.”
Sen Bernie Sanders said, Medicare for all ” is a “cost-effective” program.
“And I wonder how we are going to have to pay for all these things? In terms of things like single-payer or people everyday, the fact that the government is to give everyone a job, I don’t think this is realistic,” he said.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Sanders about the possibility of Schultz’s run as “on the left is the trump card”, which is against the current President in the year 2020.
Sanders said he did not know, Schultz, but his comment was “dead wrong”.
“You have a guy who thinks that the United States is to remain, apparently, the only major country in the world guarantee health care for all people,” said Sanders. “The truth of the matter is that I think study after study has shown that Medicare for All” is a very cost-effective approach to health care than our current, dysfunctional health system, which is by far the most expensive system per capita than any other system on the earth.”
