Bernie Sanders Calls For Eliminating All Americans’ Medical Debt

Bernie Sanders is trying to secure your vote! The democratic presidential candidate announced back in June that he had a plan to cancel all $1.6 trillion of student loan debt.

As great as that sounds, it looks like he’s turning things up a notch and has now proposed to eliminate Americans’ medical debit as well! According to the New York Times, Sanders’s new plan would wipe out an estimated $81 billion in existing medical debt. His plan which is set to be released Saturday, also calls for replacing the giant credit reporting agencies with a “public credit registry” that would ignore medical debt when calculating credit scores.

The plan is his latest effort to transform the health care system in America; a goal he wanted to accomplish throughout his political career.

This move also comes right after his “Medicare for all” proposal which is a plan to create a government-run health insurance system. The Times reports that he is the first top-tier contender to call for such drastic measures on medical debt.
