Senator Bernie Sanders: Trump ‘wants to sabotage health care in America’

Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., accused President Trump of wanting to “sabotage” the Affordable Care Act after the president threatened to cut off subsidies to insurance companies that make plans purchased through ACA marketplaces more affordable to many low- and middle-income Americans.

“You know, I really think it’s incomprehensible that we have a president of the United States who wants to sabotage health care in America, make life more difficult for millions of people who are struggling now to get the health insurance they need and to pay for that health insurance,” Sanders said in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

In a tweet on Saturday, the president called the subsidies “bailouts” for insurance companies and threatened to end them.

Trump’s tweet was a response to the Republicans’ failure last week to dismantle the ACA, putting the long-promised repeal and replace efforts on hold for the foreseeable future. Friday, Trump said the Republican strategy should be to let the ACA “implode” to pressure Democrats into passing repeal and replace legislation.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said Sunday the administration had not come to a decision on whether to halt the subsidies; counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Trump would make that decision this week.

President Trump to Republican senators: I told you so.

The commander in chief lamented on Thursday afternoon that the Republicans have been unable to follow through on their campaign promises of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. In a series of tweets, he suggested this failure gave Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders an opening to advance his plan for a single-payer health care system, also known as Medicare for All, which Trump denounced as “a curse” on the United States and the American people.

But Trump assured fellow Republicans that he would save the country from this fate by vetoing any single-payer health care legislation that comes across his desk.

Our President, not being swayed by the liberal’s socialist agenda has stated if the bill reaches his desk he will veto it stating the bill was a curse on The United States and the American people.

For many American’s we work, pay taxes and insurance premiums out the ying yang and do the best we can to make it week to week, that’s generally the working middle class groups way.

Socialists want the government to run our healthcare system, how many times in our lives have we heard the phrase “anything the government has its hands in goes to S**t.?” These people believing that healthcare run by the government is a good idea should watch a film entitled “Soylent Green” which is a science fiction film that depicts at least some levels the things that might take place if we were to allow the government to control the way we live, which by the way is protected by the constitution in such a way as to prevent such a possibility.
