Jake Tapper to Bernie: If Single-Payer is the Answer, How Come It Failed In Vermont?




In 2014, Vermont's Dem Governor Peter Shumlin announced that he was pulling the plug on his four-year quest to impose single-payer, government-run health care on the residents of his state, saying “In my judgment, the potential economic disruption and risks would be too great to small businesses, working families, and the state’s economy"

On CNN, Berrnie Sanders was challenged by Jake Tapper on how single-payer could work for the country when it failed in 'cobalt blue states' like California and Vermont (his own state) 


Bernie of course, doesn't have an answer...


Look, taking on the insurance companies and the drug companies is hard he says...
