https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/452581-sanders-to-join-diabetes-patients-on-trip-to-canada-to-buy-cheaper-insulin

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced Thursday he will accompany patients with diabetes on a bus trip to Canada to buy insulin that’s available at cheaper prices than in the U.S.

The move comes as Sanders seeks to burnish his progressive bona fides as he vows to lower drug costs if elected president.

He will make the trip with members of Insulin4All on July 28.

“Because of pharmaceutical industry greed, the U.S. price of insulin has nearly doubled in recent years, even though the drug can be purchased for one-tenth of the price in Canada,” Sanders’s campaign said in a statement. “That price discrepancy is widespread across many medicines, which has fueled the more than $69 billion in annual pharmaceutical industry profits, even while millions of Americans cannot afford the prescription drugs they need.”

One quibble: During AOC’s comments, she stated that the woman she was talking to couldn’t find out what happened to her baby after a miscarriage because of lack of insurance. I understand that it would be considered insensitive to say what happened to the fetus, but what happened to the pregnancy could have been used to avoid the RW argument of when life begins.

Otherwise, there are some good arguments here to counter the RW’s latest attempt to destroy Medicare for All by claiming that it would lead to rationing.

This old bad sounding ‘tune’ has been playing forever. When will it stop?

1) How about people picket his front door? That has happened in a number of places before. Maybe he would find jail more comfortable.

2) Read a report somewhere that he is NOT a billionaire.
