We’re relieved to see that Briahna Joy Gray received only 800 or so likes for her original tweet claiming that 500 million Americans go bankrupt from medical debt every year.
It's great that everyone is coming together around this crisis. But people are in crisis everyday. 500 mil Americans go bankrupt from medical debt every year. 68 mil are un or underinsured. We've been in a state of emergency. We need a president who acts like it. #Bernie2020

Just another “trivial math mistake” that people will jump on because they’re racist.

There are 500 mil people in the U.S.? 🧐

There are only 330 million Americans.
But nobody mistook Bernie supporters for being good at details…

Numbers are so much more pliable than I remember from school.

This is far worse than I thought, and I thank you for bringing this to everyone attention: Bernies people really are dumber than a box of hammers.

There aren't even 350 million Americans, let alone 500 million.

500 million? Did you learn math at the New York Times?

First the left can't divide 50 billion by 320 million. Now they are claiming an extra 180 million people live in the country pic.twitter.com/smvO4WoOBa

The math capabilities of the Sanders campaign are amazing. No wonder they don’t care that socialism/communism doesn’t work.

You are using old data from 2016. It's actually *985 million* Americans going bankrupt every 5 WEEKS and twice on Sundays, but your point stands!

I'm not sure that I agree with ya 100% on your math work there, Briahna Joy.

Numbers aren’t really a thing for #Bernie2020 supporters. Whether it’s cost of programs or number of people affected, they just pull stuff out of their asses.

Not to mention the 150 million people killed by guns since 2007 pic.twitter.com/ZFcwMS2Ian

Half of those are killed by gun violence too according to Biden. If we just did some quantitative easing and took 500M from mini Mike, then we could give each of them 1 million dollars each and they could pay off their debt

If only Bloomberg had given every American a million $$🙄

It's 500 million Americans if you include the bots who say they are bankrupt from medical debt.

We almost hate dunking on her for getting the number wrong, but then again, Twitter does have a delete button.
