    • The Sanders “Medicare for all” legislation is an attempt to disguise reactionary maneuvers, each of them aimed at subordinating the health care of millions of people to the profit interests of big business, behind pie-in-the-sky promises that neither Sanders nor any of his co-sponsors take seriously.

The Sanders “Medicare for all” legislation is an attempt to disguise reactionary maneuvers, each of them aimed at subordinating the health care of millions of people to the profit interests of big business, behind pie-in-the-sky promises that neither Sanders nor any of his co-sponsors take seriously.

http://www.kfai.org/files/images/health%20care%20symbol%20screw.jpg 14 September 2017 | Senator Bernie Sanders took his campaign to whitewash the right-wing character of the Democratic Party to a new level Wednesday, introducing single-payer, “Medicare for all” legislation, co-sponsored by 15 Democratic senators, on the same day that House and Senate Democratic leaders were to visit the White House for cozy talks with President Trump on corporate tax cuts.

The bill was given full-scale media promotion, including an op-ed column by Sanders in the New York Times, lengthy articles in all the major daily newspapers, and reports on the network and cable television news programs. This for a bill which has not the slightest chance of passage by the Republican-controlled Congress, which will never even hold a committee hearing, let alone bring it to a vote.

30 April 2016 | A significant proportion of the support “democratic socialist” presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has received is due to his pledge to establish a federally funded universal health plan, which he describes as “Medicare for All.”

Workers and young people, suffering under the crushing weight of health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical costs, see high-quality health care as a fundamental social right that should be provided to everyone for free, or at minimal cost.
