"I am the only Republican out there that blames most of this crisis on the industry itself, " Senator Braun said on FOX Business' "Bulls and Bears" on Wednesday." Bernie Sanders, government getting involved in health care is treating a symptom of a sick industry."


Senator Braun is working with a group of other Republican senators to create a Republican proposal for Health care as a response to Sen. Sanders' plan and as a replacement for President Obama's Affordable Care Act.

"We need to hold the industry accountable, make them transparent, [and] start fixing themselves," he said. "And, we need to, as Republicans, over the next year and half or two, put a plan together that we sell to the American public-- the ship has sailed when it comes to those three pillars."


Braun also believes Sanders' plan to end private insurance would be met with a lot of resistance from the public and would radically shift the way many Americans get their health care.
