Bernie Sanders says coronavirus shows how “absurd” US health care system is

Sen. Bernie Sanders said today that the “horrific” coronavirus crisis “has exposed for all¬†to see how absurd our current¬†employer-based health insurance¬†system is.”

Speaking during a live-streamed address where¬†he announced he was dropping out of the presidential race,¬†Sanders pointed out that “the current economic downturn we¬†are experiencing has not only¬†led to a massive loss of jobs¬†but has also resulted in¬†millions of Americans losing¬†their health insurance.”

Sanders continued:  

“While Americans have been told¬†over and over again how¬†wonderful our employer-based¬†private insurance system is,¬†those claims sound very hollow¬†today as a growing number of¬†unemployed workers struggle with¬†how they can afford to go to the¬†doctor or not go bankrupt with a¬†huge hospital bill.”

“Health care must be considered¬†as a human right, not an¬†employee benefit,” he added.
