Sanders: Insurance Companies’ Goal Is to Make as Much Money as Possible from Human Suffering

‘This is not just a Republican problem, it is a Democratic problem’


SANDERS: "There is one major country on Earth that does not guarantee healthcare to all people as a right -- it's the United States. And that country, our country ends up spending almost double of what the Canadians do, almost triple of what the British do, far more than the French, Scandinavians do. Now why is it that we spend far, far more and get less? Our health care outcomes in many respects but not as good as many of these other countries. Why is it? Well Mike, hit it right on, you know, hit the nail on the head, it's of course, the power of the insurance companies. For them, their goal is not to provide quality cost effective healthcare it's make as much money as they possibly can out of human suffering."
