“Are Americans going bankrupt because of medical debt? Leading progressives seem to think so. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., recently called for all medical debt to be canceled. ‘‘Medical debt’ and ‘Medical bankruptcy’ are two phrases that should not exist in the United States of America,’ he said after the major credit bureaus recently announced they’d remove paid-off medical debt previously sent to collections from credit reports. But the data indicate that there’s no epidemic of medical bankruptcy.” (05/11/22)
