Bernie Sanders continues to push his socialist agenda onto the country. As he fights for the Democratic nomination, he is promising everything—from free healthcare, education, to basic income. Yet he ignores the price tag these freebies would require. In a recent interview, he was pressed to admit how much it’ll cost. Then he said something truly hilarious.
Sanders was in the lead—if you believe the polls—for the Democratic nomination. Until Creepy Joe Biden joined the fray. The Democratic Socialist has fallen behind considerably. Who knows if he’ll still be around come 2020?
This is the second time Sanders might be beaten by an establishment Democrat. But he’s not going down without a fight. Is he going to connect with the American people? Put forward a plan that will strengthen our economy and restore America’s stability and strength?
Nope! He’s just promising free stuff to win over voters. A pathetic tactic frequently used by the left. He’s trying to attract the most lazy, unmotivated, and useless voters: people who would sell away their freedom for a few handouts.
Sanders is known for his major promises like free college education and healthcare. He wants to buy voters with promises that the U.S. government will pay for these massively expensive things. Things which would become even more expensive, should the government start to pay for them. He never really explains that the “government” means you and me. In order to provide free stuff, Sanders would have to tax regular, hard-working Americans.
When pressed about this, he only had one thing to say.
On Wednesday, Sanders attempted to sway voters into the ideology of Democratic socialism and argued in favor for what he called an “Economic Bill of Rights,” where every American would have a right for items like free health care and education…
“Look, what we have to understand, for example… the United States is the only major country on Earth not to guarantee health care to all people as a right,” Sanders explained…
“But as you know, the taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are- the individual and personal tax, are much higher than they are in the United States,” Cooper told the 2020 candidate.
“Yeah, but I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right,” Sanders claimed. [Source: Fox News]
Uh… what? We’d be delighted to pay massive taxes so that freeloaders can get healthcare? Hey, American workers, would you like more of your paycheck taken from you—so you can’t afford rent, food, and clothing—so that the government can provide substandard benefits to others?
I think Uncle Bernie forgot to take his brain pills. Because his plan for America is the ultimate case of robbing Peter to pay Paul.
He thinks he can tax working Americans into oblivion, just so his government has enough cash to pay for the college tuition of some and healthcare for others.
Hey! Here’s an idea: reduce the tax burden so that working Americans have the money to pay for those things themselves! Let the free market provide competition, so that colleges offer cheaper tuitions and medical costs can go down.
Let Americans decide where they want to spend their money—you know, give them the choice. And allow free Americans make their own decisions on education and healthcare.
Sanders wants to create a system where we have no choice. Where we’re forced to get healthcare from the same people who run the DMV. A system where hard-working Americans get more than 60% of their paychecks taken away, so that someone else can go to college.
And, on top of that, he says we’d be delighted over it! Oh, how delighted! I’m so happy I now live below the poverty line, so Sanders can waste my cash!
This is proof Bernie—and the rest of the “Democratic” Socialists—are completely out of touch with Americans. He doesn’t care if you succeed; he only wants your money to buy votes.
Why don’t we let Sanders know how we really feel about his plans?
