Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), aka “Mr. You Should’ve Been Our President,” had the reaction just about all of us had after hearing President Spray Tan say that “nobody knew health care could be so complicated.”
During an appearance with Anderson Cooper Monday on Anderson Cooper 360º, Sanders burst out laughing after hearing that the leader of the free world didn’t know that Obamacare, which he has been vowing to “replace and repeal” since running for office, was a complex system.
“Well, some of us who were sitting on the health education committee, who went to meeting after meeting after meeting, who heard from dozens of people, who stayed up night after night trying to figure out this thing, yeah—we got a clue,” Sanders said.
“When you provide health care in a nation of 320 million people, yeah, it is very, very complicated,” he continued. “And maybe now, maybe the president and some of the Republicans understand you can go beyond the rhetoric ‘We’re going to repeal the Affordable Care Act. We’re going to repeal Obamacare and everything will be wonderful,’ [it’s] a little bit more complicated than that.”
“Let’s get beyond rhetoric,” the senator concluded.
