Bernie Sanders: Private Health Insurance Premiums Would Be ‘Gone’ Under My Plan

Monday on Power 105.1 FM’s  “The Breakfast Club,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said private insurance premiums would be “gone” under his Medicare for All plan.

Sanders said, “So, to answer your question in terms of health care, we’re already paying for it. We’re paying twice as much as the Canadians. So what the criticism of Bernie Sanders is, he’s going to raise your taxes. Well, I may, that’s right. But you know what I’m doing? I’m doing away with all of your private health insurance premiums. All right, I don’t know how you guys work and where you get your health care from. Somebody is paying for it. Somebody’s paying Blue Cross the, United Health. All right, that’s gone.”
