Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said on MSNBC Friday that “thousands of people will die” if the Senate Republican health care plan is implemented.

Sanders argued to host Andrea Mitchell that the American people and Democratic senators are united in opposition to the bill, which he claims will cause Americans to die.

“Let us be clear, Andrea, and this is not trying to be overly dramatic,” he said. “Thousands of people will die.”

“I mean, if you don’t have insurance and you have a chronic disease and you can’t afford your prescription drugs, you know what, you’re gonna die, you’ll become much sicker,” he continued.

Sanders stated that the health bill will “throw 23 million people” off of health insurance and will raise premiums for older people.

“That’s not great, that’s a disaster,” Sanders asserted. “That’s wrong, and the American people do not want to see this legislation passed.”

    I’m sure he never read it or Obamacare.

    To even think that another government welfare program is a good idea is to ignore the countless failed programs already.

    It’s a fantasy to think government will solve any problem. History shows they’ll make it corrupt, expensive, and ineffective.

    Thousands will die anyway under Obamacare. His premise that his favored act over the new act somehow saves people is false. People who are sick are going to die eventually. Therefore, what Sanders has to say is irrelevant.
