“Two days before the second Democratic presidential debates, Sen. Bernie Sanders bused roughly a dozen Americans across the border from Detroit to Windsor to prove his point.

They went to buy insulin at one-tenth the price it’s sold in the United States. Sanders, holding up a vial of insulin outside a Canadian pharmacy, surrounded by Americans struggling to stay alive and pay the bills, decried greed, corruption, and corporate profiteering.

The vial would cost around $340 in the United States, but it was $36 over the counter in Windsor, the result of more vigorous government price controls. Sanders said pharmaceutical executives who price-fix drugs should go to jail. Dozens of members of the press were on the trip; his campaign fundraised off it. Sunday’s trip was clearly political.

But it wasn’t political in the way Sanders usually is. He made no mention of Medicare-for-all. The Americans on the bus didn’t know Sanders’s campaign was paying for the trip when they signed up for it; the advocacy group Insulin for All, which helped find diabetics for the bus ride, designed it that way. Several of the participants didn’t even know what Sanders was about.”*
