'So much to be learned': Bernie Sanders commends Canada's healthcare
American Senator Bernie Sanders says insurance and drug companies, and those with extreme wealth, are hurting health care in the United States and warned Canadians not to allow that to happen on this side of the border.
“It is a shame, it is a disgrace,” he said in a speech in Toronto on Sunday, explaining that 28 million Americans do not have health insurance and that the current U.S. government wants to drop public coverage for millions more to pay for tax cuts for the most wealthy.
“That is what happens when billionaires are able to buy a political party. Don’t let it happen in Canada,” said the former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. His speech was at the University of Toronto on Ocotber 29, 2017.
