Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, said the United States needs campaign finance reform to get rid of the “power of the insurance companies and the drug companies.”
“Why do we continue to get ripped off by the drug companies, who can charge us any prices they want?” Sanders asked. “Why is that we are spending, per capita far, far more than Canada, that guarantees health care for all people?… When millions of people stand up and are prepared to take on the insurance companies and the drug companies, it will happen. I will lead that effort. Medicare for all — a single-payer system — is the way we should go.”
Clinton said she has been waiting for years for a single-payer revolution that never came.
