…..Sanders Refutes GOP Claim on Medicare-for-All

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ recent trip to the hospital for urgent medical care inspired Republican critics of his Medicare-for-All plan to point out that the normal waiting periods for receiving care under socialized medicine are typically weeks or even months and, in some cases are denied for a person as old (78) as Sanders is. In the British system, the median time from assessment to treatment is 55 days. In Canada the waiting time averages 11 weeks.

The senator called the GOP claim “misleading. While the average person might, in fact, have to endure such waits, my plan makes explicit exceptions for important people. Under democratic socialism, government leaders are vital cogs in running the country. As such, they will have line-cutting privileges that ensure they get the best treatment expeditiously. We can’t afford to have high-ranking members of the ruling body fall victim to the queuing procedures that apply to the masses.”.....

1. Actually in Sander's case

in Canada (heart attack, blocked artery) he would wait between 7 and 28 days depending on how the provincial priority board graded him from 1 immediate (7 days) to 4 (routine) 28 days. My guess since he was stable probably a 2 14 day wait.

That of course is the standard of care, in reality the waits can be much longer.

2. All the people that espouse the virtues of socialism

and especially people of influence should be made to get their care in places like Cuba or Venezuela.

That’ll shut the idiots up pretty damn quick.

3. I still don't understand why he didn't go to Cuba.

After all, he claims that their healthcare system is FAR superior to ours.
