Bernie Sanders on Health Care


on health : And over the years, I have strongly supported instant background checks, doing away with this terrible gun show loophole. And I think we've got to move aggressively at the federal level in dealing with the straw man purchasers. Also I believe, and I've fought for, to understand that there are thousands of people in this country today who are suicidal, who are homicidal, but can't get the healthcare that they need, the mental healthcare, because they don't have insurance or they're too poor. I believe that everybody in this country who has a mental crisis has got to get mental health counseling immediately. (2015/10/13)
on health : that we have to address the issue of mental health, (2015/10/13)

on insurance : You know what it all comes down to? Do you know why we can't do what every other country -- major country on Earth is doing?
