Bernie Sanders is launching a month-long campaign to promote ‘Medicare for All’ aka StalinCare. The Democrats destroyed our healthcare system and he plans to put the final nail in the coffin. He’s going to present his economic basis for free healthcare for all. This should be good.
A very expensive ad buy will be paid for by Sanders’s 2018 Senate re-election campaign, directing readers to his website, where they can sign on to his bill.
Most humorously, Bernie and his team are doing the math to show how it will work financially. Meanwhile in the real world, his own home state of Vermont couldn’t make it work financially nor could California.
Maybe he could put his wife in charge of the math.
Last year, the Urban Institute (UI), a left-of-center think tank, released a study that says the unsayable — ‘Medicare for All’ is an unaffordable, unsustainable fantasy.
“[N]ational health expenditures would increase … by 6.6 trillion (16.6 percent) between 2017 and 2026,” the report stated. That was for starters.
“The increase in federal expenditures would be considerably larger than the increase in national health expenditures because substantial spending borne by states, employers, and households under current law would shift to the federal government under the Sanders plan.” How much larger? “In total, federal spending would increase by about $2.5 trillion (257.6 percent) in 2017. Federal expenditures would increase by about $32.0 trillion (232.7 percent) between 2017 and 2026.”
Bernie is the man who doesn’t think 90% taxation is too much. This is a man who didn’t get a real job until he was 40, when he was elected to office.
The only limits to the minimum wage that he sees are those dictated by the politics.
The leftists are trying to portray Bernie as a liberal or a Progressive. He refers to himself as a Democratic Socialist [like Maduro in Venezuela]. The man is a communist of sorts. He loved Castro, the Sandinistas, and other terrorists. Do people really think his policies won’t lead to force and violence in the end? Come on.
