Sanders Claims 500,000 People Go Bankrupt Every Year Because of Medical Bills

‘We are going to end all of that’

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: “We pay, by far, the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, and unbelievably some 500,000 people go bankrupt every year. You know why they go bankrupt? Because they have cancer, or they have heart disease and they can't afford to pay off their medical debt. That is cruel, that is outrageous and we are going to end all of that.” (Cheering)
