Press Release: Sanders: ''No family in America should be financially ruined by medical debt''

Bernie 2020 Demands Retraction of Inaccurate WashPost "Fact Check" On Medical Bankruptcy

A letter to Washington Post editor Marty Baron details the newspaper's repeated inaccurate criticism of the Vermont senator

In the last two months, the Washington Post has published three factually inaccurate “fact check” articles about Bernie Sanders — and despite being publicly ridiculed for these articles, the newspaper has never issued a correction or retraction. The latest example is the most egregious — in its zealous attempt to criticize Bernie, the newspaper ended up promoting inaccurate information that wrongly defamed the work of a well-respected academic researcher. The Bernie 2020 campaign today sent a letter to Washington Post editor Marty Baron demanding a full retraction of the story. That letter is here:


The Washington Post says it adheres to the highest journalistic standards of objectivity, fairness and accuracy. If that is the case, why does the Post’s editorial leadership allow the Fact Checker to regularly, baselessly disparage Senator Sanders with smears that are demonstrably inaccurate? And why has the Post’s editorial leadership not corrected or retracted these smears when they are proven false?

We hope that you will address the Fact Checker’s inappropriate coverage of Senator Sanders -- first by immediately retracting this most recent piece, and then by committing the newspaper to covering Senator Sanders in a fair, professional and ethical manner that finally starts honoring the most basic standards of accuracy.

We look forward to hearing your immediate response to this request.

CNN - Bernie Sanders teases plan to eliminate billions in medical debt

Updated 8:09 AM ET, Sat August 31, 2019


Florence, South Carolina (CNN)Sen. Bernie Sanders announced late Friday that he plans to eliminate billions in medical debt, hinting at a proposal the 2020 presidential Democratic candidate's campaign has yet to release in full.

The plan, which the Sanders campaign says would cancel $81 billion in existing past-due medical debt and make changes to the 2005 bankruptcy bill, is not expected to be released in its entirety for another month. The proposal -- which is still in the works, separate from the senator's "Medicare for All" plan and meant to address debt under the current system -- does not explicitly state how Sanders will eliminate medical debt, but says, "under this plan, the federal government will negotiate and pay off past-due medical bills in collection that have been reported to credit agencies."

Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir told CNN on Friday that "Sen. Sanders had previously asked us to pull together a plan to finally end the crisis of medical debt, and when asked directly about it tonight he was honest and candid in previewing his thinking on this important matter."

The outline explains that the full plan will address the components of the 2005 bankruptcy bill that "made it much more difficult to discharge medical debt" and "trapped families with medical debt in long-term poverty." It also promises to "make sure that no one's credit score is negatively impacted by unpaid medical bills."

Later Friday, Sanders elaborated on his thinking while speaking with reporters at a nearby street party following the town hall.
