“At a rally in Kentucky, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) compared the predicted deaths from the Republican health care bill to the recurrence of a 9/11 attack every year.
‘Nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction,’ Sanders said in Covington, Ky.
Sanders said a new report showed that 23 million Americans will be ‘thrown off [their] insurance.’
‘Up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die,’ he said, comparing that figure to the nearly 3,000 killed by radical Islamic terrorists on 9/11/01.
‘That is nine times more than the tragic losses we suffered on 9/11 [which would recur] every single year,’ he said.”
