Bernie Sanders: GOP Healthcare Bill Is Worse Than 9/11

The Vermont Senator is back to using extreme rhetoric to make political points.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Sunday suggested that the Republican Healthcare bill would be worse than the 9/11 terrorist attacks during a “Care Not Cuts” rally in Morgantown, WV.

“Now obviously nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction,” Sanders told the crowd. “But what experts at the Havard School of Public Health estimate, is that if 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have…up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die.”

“That is nine times more than the tragic losses of we suffered on 9/11, every single year,” Sanders concluded.

Sanders has gotten into hot water recently for is extreme rhetoric, including telling supporters to act in “unprecedented” ways and to fight back in every way that they can just days after the Alexandria, VA shooting, which left House Majority Whip, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), seriously injured.
