Bernie Sanders: We No Longer Accept Greed Of Pharmaceutical Industry | NBC News Now



can you believe that in America today people are dying because of the high cost of prescription drugs and today we announce loudly and clearly that we will no longer accept the greed of the pharmaceutical industry in fact later this month on the 28th I'll be going to Detroit Michigan and get on a bus with a number of people who have diabetes and we are going to be taking that bus to Windsor Ontario and in Windsor Ontario we are going to buy insulin for one tenth of the price that diabetic patients are charged in the United States so today we tell the pharmaceutical industry their greed is going to end that on the Medicare for all there will be a cap on what people will have to pay for medicine and that we are going to significantly and underline the word significantly lower prescription drug costs in America we are tired of getting ripped off I am tired of talking with people who are struggling with mental illness in this country who cannot afford the mental health counseling they desperately need I am tired of talking and meeting with people whose teeth are rotting in their mouths but they cannot find affordable dental care let me be very honest and tell you what I think many of you already know that the current debate over Medicare for all has nothing to do with health care we are not in a debate about which health care system is working well or which is better nobody thinks that a system in which 80 million people or more have no health insurance or are underinsured is a good system nobody I know thinks that when Americans are paying the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs that that is a good system what the debate that we are currently having in this campaign and all over this country has nothing to do with health care but it has everything to do with the greed and profits of the health care industry [Applause] hey NBC News viewers thanks for checking out our YouTube channel subscribe by clicking on that button down here and click on any of the videos over here to watch the latest interviews show highlights and digital exclusives thanks for watching

  2. Aren't campaign promises adorable? Just say stuff to get votes and make yourself look nice. The president has no authority to do any of the things he proposes, from free college and healthcare to reparations and free childcare, he can't do anything but hope he has a majority in Congress and they actually get something done that looks like what he campaigned on. And get the votes.

  3. He should put a chicken puppet on his right arm since he is constantly pecking at something with it. I can't stand to watch him for 2 seconds!

  8. Bernie mr. America Sanders
    I love you to death
    I have no business giving you advisement but if by some miracle you get this message I would make this message loud and clear Bernie
    We don't need to do anything except pay our fair share of taxes
    That's the message you have to meet
    If these corporations pay
    their fair share of taxes
    then do would be no problems in the wealthiest country in the history of the world
    The problem is the poor man pays the taxes and the rich man puts his money overseas
    This is the message you need to pound how come some people have to pay their taxes and some people don't this is the message you need to ring clear it's not socialism it's paying your fair share of your taxes pay your fair share should be your mantra pay your fair share you don't have to give nobody nothing just pay your fair share thank you love you
