Senator Amy Klobuchar and rival Bernie Sanders differed sharply over health care reform during last night’s (Tues) round two Democratic presidential debate in Detroit. Klobuchar says allowing a public option, but keeping private insurance, “is the easiest way to move forward quickly”:
“People can’t wait. I’ve got my friend Nicole (Holt-Smith) out there whose son… actually died trying to ration his insulin as a restaurant manager, and he died because he didn’t have enough money to pay for it.”
Sanders fired back:
“People talk about having insurance. There are millions of people who have insurance, they can’t go to the doctor and when they come out of the hospital, they go bankrupt, alright?”
Sanders is pushing “Medicare for All”.
