Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders admitted Friday that his Medicare for All plan would cover the nearly 11 million illegal immigrants present in the United States.
Sanders has routinely campaigned on his plan to nationalize the U.S. health care system and provide so-called “free” health insurance to every individual. The plan is estimated to cost more than $32 trillion over the next decade.
“We’re gonna … create a Medicare for All health care system which guarantees health care to every man, woman, and child,” Sanders said during the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ (NALEO) presidential candidate forum Friday. “We will organize the American people around the idea that all people in this country have the right to health care.”
Breitbart reported that 11 Democrat presidential candidates, including Senator Michael Bennet, Senator Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, Senator Kamala Harris, Representative Seth Moulton, Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Eric Swalwell, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang, endorse taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens.
