2020 Democrats’ work to win this election has prompted a series of grand promises to voters. Some of the biggest promises of all include ending student loan debt, providing “free” healthcare, delivering “tuition-free” university, and even supplying “free” housing.
The aforementioned proposals and many others face notable scrutiny from conservatives who don’t feel convinced. Democrats claim they’ll pass on the fees to Wall Street and the wealthy 1% via higher taxes when questioned about their plans to fund policies worth trillions of dollars each.
On Saturday, 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders vowed to do away with $81 billion dollars of medical debt if he’s elected as president of the United States.
How Does Sanders Plan to End $81 Billion Dollars of Medical Debt?
On Saturday, Sanders put out an official statements which condemns the existence of medical debt. He claims “it is unacceptable that one out of every six Americans have past-due medical bills on their credit report.”
Sanders then followed up by claiming that families shouldn’t face garnished wages and loss of utilities while the health insurance industry reaps massive profits.
