Short Link to this Quote:
In this quote, Bernie Sanders is directly questioning Tom Price, who was the Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Trump, about whether he believes healthcare should be considered a basic right for all Americans regardless of their economic status.
By asking if Price believes healthcare is a right “of all Americans, whether rich or poor,” Sanders is pushing Price to clarify if he supports the principle of universal healthcare coverage as a human or civil right that should not be denied to people due to poverty or inability to pay.
Overall, Sanders appears to be challenging Price’s view that the U.S. healthcare system should guarantee medical coverage as a right for every citizen, not just those who can afford private insurance or medical costs out-of-pocket.
