How Does Bernie Sanders Pay For Medicare For All?

How Does Bernie Sanders Pay For Medicare For All?

do we pay higher taxes?

>> i think what we'll do is eliminate the hundreds of billions of dollars in waste in the military, we'll ask the wealthy and large corporations who have gotten away with murder for the last 30 years to start paying their fair share.

and we'll be able to increase spending for things like education, health care and dealing with the environment.

>> bernie, $18 trillion dollars in debt.

how are you going to pay for it?

>> well, first of all, i disagree with the idea that you can't pay for this program.

i think it's imperative that we do so.

health care is a right of all people and we will raise taxes to do what is.

paying for it.

i would pay for it by a tax on wall street speculation.

will americans have to pay more for their health insurance?

>> absolutely not.

i think what we have to do is to tell the health insurance companies and the drug companies that no longer can they make massive profits on the backs of senior citizens and working class families.

the reality is if we want to move forward to a system to work for all, we have to pay for it.

we will impose a tax on wall street speculation and make sure the top 1% and the largest corporations are also asked to pay their fair share of taxes.

>> so, bernie, how do you pay for.
