Bernie Sanders' recent statement on the ACA: “This is a big, big deal.”

A Big Deal

There was a surge in signups for health coverage in advance of Monday’s midnight deadline to enroll under the Affordable Care Act. “Ten million people today have health care who previously did not,” Sen. Bernie Sanders told Ed Schultz in a radio interview on Tuesday.

“This is a big, big deal.” Even more Americans would be covered, Sanders said, if 23 states would accept expanded Medicaid services available under the Affordable Care Act. The coverage would come at no additional cost to the states for three years. And even more people would be covered and get better care at less cost if the United States provided Medicare-like coverage for all Americans.

Sanders hopes Vermont will show the rest of the country the advantages of universal health care like the rest of the major countries in the world.
