Even though Sanders has received opposition from high-ranking Democrats, and the Republican party, Bernie has introduced his single-payer health care bill.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on Wednesday declared he was gearing up for a fight against pharmaceutical and health insurance companies as he works to gain support for his single payer healthcare bill, and brushed off the Republican opposition to his proposal that quickly emerged.
Sanders, who did not take questions from reporters following a press conference on his bill, the Medicare for All Act, slammed the current healthcare system as one that "allows insurance companies and drug companies to make billions of dollars in profits and make industry CEOs extremely wealthy."
He invoked the battle in the Senate over a healthcare bill to repeal and replace portions of Obamacare, which most Republicans voted for even though it ultimately failed in July.
"To my Republican colleagues: Please don't lecture us on healthcare," he said. "In the last few months you, the Republican Party, have showed the American people what you stand for when you voted for legislation that would have thrown up to 32 million people off their health insurance they have and give huge tax breaks."
