Crazy Sen. Bernie Sanders lost his mind on CNN on Wednesday as he discussed the upcoming repeal of Obamacare with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Tapper eventually questioned Sanders over his claims that “thousands will die” if Obamacare is repealed.
“You’ve said if this repeal and replace plan goes forward that thousands of Americans will die,” Tapper said to Sanders. “Where do you get that estimate from?”
“I get that estimate from the fact that studies have been done that people who do not have health insurance, who do not go to the doctor when they should, who do not go to the hospital when they need to go, in fact die,” Sanders said. “And thousands of people die every year because they don’t have health insurance. And if you throw 24 million people off of health insurance, there is no doubt that many thousands of people will die.”
Even Tapper had a tough time trying to glorify the abysmal Obamacare.
“In many states Obamacare is in dire straights. The governor of Minnesota, a liberal Democrat said the ‘Affordable Care Act’ is ‘unaffordable,'” said Tapper.
“No, I think what the American, look, what you’re saying is true,” Sanders replied. “No one, certainly not me, that the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, has many serious problems.”
“Deductibles are too high, premiums are too high, we still have too many people who don’t have any health insurance,” Sanders said. “It’s too complicated, it’s too bureaucratic.”
And this is why President Trump nicknamed Sanders “Crazy Bernie.”
