Transcript for Sen. Bernie Sanders, millennials discuss health care solutions
How are we going to make it possible for everyone to have health insurance that's affordable? I wish it was simpler, cheaper. Obamacare is a step in the right direction but it doesn't go far enough. There's been a lot of talk about repealing and replacing Obamacare of the but one generation wants to see it go even further. Millennials. Most young people under 30 say the government should pay for health care. With 45% supporting a system of single payer. While most older folks aren't too excited about single payer health care, there is one guy who is. More people under the age of 30 support single payer than any other age demographic. To what do you attribute that? They're smart of we have a very bright younger generation who is catching on. They see it as a human right, not just a privilege. That's exactly what this doctor told us. Part of growing up and seeing some people with coverage, some without. That's what made me want to go into medicine in the first place. I would take a pay cut if it meant better care, easier care. You would be willing to take a pay cut. Absolutely. He's not the only one. I think everyone deserves their right to health care. So I would pay more in taxes if I had to. I'm willing to pay higher taxes so all of us can get better health care. Why do more and more millennials feel this way? Horror stories on social media may be playing a role. One is Jimmy Kimmel's show about his son. R no parent should ever have to decide if they can't afford to save their child's life. Right now I'm working three jobs. And I don't have health care. It's frustrating. Some conservatives think millennials are too confident in the government's ability to provide health care of the. Millennials have too much faith in the government. I oppose it for a couple reasons. Number one, it costs a lot of money. Some might clues to go without for a year or so. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Senator Sanders is aware of these criticisms. People's taxes will go you. If you're a family of four and you're paying $15,000 for health insurance. I say you won't have to pay that but you will pay $5,000 in taxes. That's a great deal. How would you get that to pass? I have no illusion when we have Republican leadership who wanted to throw 32 million people off health insurance, they'll be supportive. What I am very confidence that, it is not just young people. It is more and more Americans. Whether he'll be successful, only time will tell. But millennials are eager to improve the current system. We go forward with a medicare for all single payer program.
