Sanders' team told reporters just before a health care panel on Friday that it received seven points – along with a health bill – at a local clinic after cutting its head earlier "on the edge of a glass shower door. "
Sanders did not recognize the bandage on the left eye, except for briefly dabbing the area around the stitches, during his panel with patients and caregivers health care at the local local union union 1422 in Charleston.
After suffering the injury, and before the public event, Sanders also attended a breakfast meeting with about 20 members of the local clergy, the campaign said. It will continue as planned for Nevada for a demonstration on Saturday.
Friday's health care conversation marked Sanders' second appearance in Palmetto State, where he hurt Hillary Clinton in the 201
"Tonight, we say very clearly to private health insurance companies, whether you like it or not, the United States of America will unite in every other great country on Earth and guarantee health care to all people like a right, "Sanders told the crowd, making his Medicare for the whole camp. "You know, and I want you all to know, every day in the newspapers is another columnist and an editorial that is attacking me – that's an impractical idea. You have to tell the people of Canada, Germany, Scandinavia, France and the United Kingdom: if they can guarantee that health is for everyone as a right, do not tell me that the United States of America cannot do so. "
is returned to that message on Friday during the panel and in the next question and answer session.
"We have a system where insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies make billions and yet you have tens and tens of millions of Americans who can't afford to go to the doctor," Sanders told the rally. "For me, it's a pretty crazy thing."
