Bernie Sanders Says Medicare for All Would Provide "Quality Care" During Pandemic [View all]



(snip)

After host Seth Meyers noted that the pandemic has made people "re-evaluate the current system in health care," Sanders spoke about how this moment would be different if Medicare for All was in place. "Millions of people are losing their jobs and some 87 million people already did not have any health insurance or are underinsured," said Sanders.

"People are sitting home right now scared to death that somebody in their family is gonna come down with the virus. They don't know how they will even pay for the treatment they receive, let alone any other problems their families have," he continued.

"It speaks to the hypocrisy of these folks," he said, before noting that the country should be able to take care of doctors, nurses, EMT workers, police officers and firemen. "In some cases they're getting sick because they don't have the equipment that they need."

"The function of health care should not be to make $100 billion in profits last year for the drug companies and the insurance companies. It should be to create a system which guarantees health care to all. A system which has a strong public health component, so that we have doctors and nurses all over this country where today we have a lot of underserved areas," said Sanders. "And that we make sure that health care is a human right."
