Sanders Wants To Get Rid Of Medical Debt Too

It’s the latest step in the 2020 Democratic candidate’s quest to free consumers from what he describes as a “dysfunctional health care system” that ruins families’ finances. The proposal, which is still in the works, would relieve consumers of an estimated $81 billion in medical debt and reform a 2005 federal bankruptcy law to make it easier to discharge such liabilities, according to Sanders’ campaign.
