Sanders: AHCA Is A Tax Cut For The Rich, Not A Health Care Plan


Former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders sounds off on the GOP's healthcare plan.

BERNIE SANDERS: It is probably wrong to refer to this legislation as a 'health care plan.' Its primary purpose is to give some $300 billion in tax breaks over next ten years to the top 2% [of income earners]. To help the very wealthy, the insurance industry, and the pharmaceutical companies, to get huge tax breaks.

In terms of the essence of their so-called plan, they are going to throw 24 million people off of health insurance, defund Planned Parenthood, and according to the AARP... your healthcare costs are going to go up from $1,700 to $13,000.
