Sanders’ Health Care Plan Would Cost $13.8 Trillion Over a Decade
The Fiscal Times

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont on Sunday evening unveiled details of his plan to move the country beyond the Affordable Care Act to a universal national health care program that would cost about $13.8 trillion over the coming decade and require a sweeping increase in taxes, especially for the wealthiest Americans.

Under pressure from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to show his hand on his health care initiatives, Sanders’ campaign released details of the proposals just ahead of last night’s two-hour nationally televised Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina.
