This week, Bernie Sanders was grilled on 60 Minutes over how he’ll pay for all his socialist plans. Both Democrats and Republicans complained he could never find the money for his trillion-dollar agenda. Sanders quickly released a plan on his campaign website. In a word, it’s terrible.
Democrats are panicking over the fact that Sanders is winning their primary race. For good reason. Sanders is an open socialist. He seems to despise our capitalist economic system. You know, the system that has brought America untold wealth and prosperity?
Sanders hates billionaires, but apparently has no problem with millionaires (because he’s one of them). To win over his rabid followers, he’s promising all kinds of “free” government handouts. He wants to make college free and forgive student loan debt. Another major promise from Sanders is his “Medicare for All,” a government-run program that would put private health providers out of business.
These all sound great—if you’re a dummy who doesn’t want to pay for things. But if you’ve ever worked a day in your life, you know this all sounds too good to be true. Even Anderson Cooper demanded Sanders explain how he’d pay for all these goodies. Finally, the socialist released a plan on how he’d pay for all his government-run ideas.
Let’s just say, he’ll tank the country faster than we thought.
Bernie Sanders unexpectedly released a fact-sheet Monday night explaining that he’d pay for his sweeping new government programs through new taxes and massive lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry, as well as by slashing spending on the military, among other methods…
The plan also did not discuss how the government would be able to reliably obtain the money, given that many investments could simply be liquidated or transferred elsewhere before his administration took office…

If you ever wanted to know how a crazy, out-of-touch communist would run the economy, take a look at Sanders’ plan.
Now, I’m no economist, but if the government created countless new taxes on the stock market, corporations, and the rich—I’m thinking it would create catastrophe. Sanders’ plan would put heavy burdens on just about every transaction in the stock market. The wealthiest Americans (who create businesses and jobs) would be hammered with unrealistic and abusive taxes.
Sanders wants to attack the fossil fuel industry with endless lawsuits to drain them of money. Apparently, the companies that provide us with affordable fuel and energy are now villains out of a comic book.
On top of that, he’d rip over $1 trillion from our military, “scaling back” our operations. Oh, that’s a good idea! We face dangers from Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea, Russia, China and parts beyond. But we should be rolling back our military so our country’s weak and defenseless. I know Sanders is a braindead hippy, but I didn’t know he was this stupid.
Then there’s the fact that Sanders wants to provide free health care to illegal immigrants. His plans did not address how much that would cost. So, you can expect whatever final expenses to double or even triple.
After Sanders rolled out this insane plan, he once again praised the murderous dictatorship of Fidel Castro, over how he helped Cubans learn to read. Really, Bernie? You’re still praising Castro because literacy rates rose? Nearly every developed country has schools that teach children how to read (including the United States). You can’t ignore the atrocities Castro committed, because of one small goal.
It’s hard to believe anyone would endorse Sanders after his terrible plan is unveiled. Any America who still thinks Sanders has America’s best intentions at heart is blind. He is a communist that wants to bankrupt our country and turn us into broke, enslaved Cuba.
Thank God, Donald Trump is going to kick his ass.
