Bernie Down the House

In a Washington Post op-ed, former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders excoriates Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare and allow the pharmaceutical industry to increase drug prices by up to 50%.
“If Republicans get their way, 30 million Americans, 82% of whom are from working families, will lose their health insurance. With Medicare privatized, seniors will see their premiums increase by as much as 50% while their benefits are cut and funding for nursing-home care dries up,” Sanders warns.
Challenging President-elect Trump to stand by his pledges to preserve social programs, he says Trump must choose to stand with the American people or his Republican colleagues.
