With billions of dollars at stake, powerful healthcare companies have formed a new group to fight single payer healthcare. The entrenched and highly-profitable healthcare “establishment” is clearly worried that the movement toward single payer would cut into their obscene and unconscionable profit margins that force millions of Americans into financial ruin and bankruptcy.
"Every major health organization in this country ... thinks that their proposal is a disaster," Sanders said, standing right next to Sens. Graham and Cassidy.
On Meet The Press, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) destroyed the Republican argument against single payer health care, by reminding America that what Republicans aren't telling them about the cost is that their expensive health insurance premiums are going to vanish under single payer.
"We have a Medicare system right now. It is a good system. ... Let's expand that program to every man, woman, and child. It's not a scary proposition."
"I would predict that in less than seven years, we'll be in a single-payer system. That's the great irony of this."
"We've got to join the rest of the world and guarantee health care to all of our people as a right."
After Cruz expressed phony concern about insurance company profits, Sanders excitedly pounced.

We keep hearing from the far right that they want their country back. What country are they talking about? I fear they mean the brash, cruel America of the last 8 years, instead of the America built on the ideals of social justice for all. When they say they’re losing their “freedoms”, they’re referring to not healthcare, but their guns.
