Sanders: Thousands Will Die If Trump Gets His Way On ObamaCare

Senator Bernie Sanders says "thousands of people will literally die" if President Trump gets his way. The Vermont Independent told CBS' “Face The Nation” that if Trump can successfully do away with the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, thousands of Americans will pay the price.

Why? Sanders says the cost of health insurance will be so high that many people won't be able to afford it. Sanders, who is running for president in 2020, said his plan would guarantee health care to all people as a right. As such, he plans to introduce his newest ‘Medicare for All’ plan within the next couple of weeks.

Enter Florida Senator Rick Scott, who believes Medicare for All would ruin the entire healthcare system. The Republican leader also appeared on CBS' “Face The Nation” and said the idea of the government taking over health care and running all of it has never worked and will not ever work.

Senator Scott and two others were tasked by Trump to come up with a Republican alternative to ObamaCare. Scott said his focus is figuring out how to drive down the cost of health care. He said reducing drug costs is the key to healthcare reform. He did not say when the newly formed team will present their plan.
