Sanders: We Are Behind Many Other Countries in Providing for Working Families, Elderly and the Children

‘Now is the time to begin addressing our physical infrastructure and our human infrastructure’
By Grabien Staff

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

SANDERS: "Well, you know, it depends on what you call infrastructure, roads and bridges and tunnels are infrastructure. I think many of us see a crisis in human infrastructure, our working class family can’t find good quality affordable child care, that’s human infrastructure. One of the areas that I am working on right now is the need to expand Medicare in order to provide dental care and hearing AIDS and eye glasses for millions and millions of seniors who need these services but can’t afford it. It’s not infrastructure. I think it is. Look, Jake, the truth is, in so many ways, we are behind many other countries throughout the world in providing for working families and the elderly and the children. And I think now is the time to begin addressing our physical infrastructure and our human infrastructure. I want to see that happen as soon as possible."
