Tim Sanders told reporters right before the health committee on Friday that he had received seven seams – along with a clean bill – at a local clinic after cutting his head "on the edge of the glass shower door". "
Sanders did not recognize the bandage over his left eye, apart from shortening the area around the seams, during his panel with patients and health professionals at the International Hall of the 1422 Union of the International Longshore Men's Association in Charleston.
After a sustained injury, even before the public event, Sanders attended a breakfast meeting with about 20 members of the local clergy, according to the campaign. He will continue in Nevada at a rally on Saturday.
The health care talk on Friday marked Sanders' second appearance in Palmetto State, where he lost to Hillary Clinton in the primary 2016, starting his 2020 presidential campaign in 2020 nearly a month ago. On Thursday night, he addressed fans at the Baptist Church High School in North Charleston – and offered a warning to the health care industry.
"Tonight, private health insurance companies, we say very clearly whether you want it or not, the United States will join every other big country on Earth and guarantee health care to all people as right," Sanders told the crowd. to make your Medicare for everyone. "You know, and I want you all to know it, there is another columnist every day in the paper, and the editor is attacking me -" this is a impractical idea. "You have to tell the people of Canada and Germany and Scandinavia and France and the United Kingdom. If I can guarantee health to all people as right, do not tell me that the United States can not.
He returned to that message on Friday during the panel and the next session of the questions and answers.
"We have a system in which insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies earn billions, and yet you have dozens and tens of millions of Americans who can not afford to go to a doctor," Sanders told the gathering. "For me, these are pretty crazy things."
