As panic over coronavirus continues to mount, politicians aren’t hesitating to use COVID-19 as a talking point to promote certain policies. As this pattern emerges, coronavirus is also being politicized while 2020 Democrat candidates take shots at President Trump.
Earlier this week, the president addressed the nation and affirmed his administration’s willingness to take on coronavirus. Some preventive measures set in place include a temporary 30-day travel ban on the European Union and encouraging Americans to partake in healthy, hygienic habits. Likewise, certain schools are closing for days at a time, while various public events are experiencing cancellations.
Mass hysteria over COVID-19 is surging and the leftist, mainstream media is at least partially responsible for this; the same principle is also applicable to politicians like Bernie Sanders who are using coronavirus to promote socialist programs like as Medicare-for-All, reports Breitbart News.
Sanders on Coronavirus and Medicare-for-All
The socialist candidate seized yesterday as an opportunity to not only promote Medicare-for-All, but also to attack President Trump and his administration. Citing the current White House as “incompetent” and “reckless,” Sanders listed Medicare-for-All as the solution to coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the socialist didn’t stop here. Sanders’ coronavirus address further contributed to existing unrest and panic by stating that America is “at a severe disadvantage” when faced with COVID-19. This inaccurate assessment came despite the existing recoveries from coronavirus, details which the liberal fake news continues to omit from their cycles.
Ultimately, Sanders declared that Medicare-for-All will guarantee free-of-charge healthcare to all Americans. Once again, this is another lie coming from an admitted socialist. Sanders himself doesn’t even know exactly how much Medicare-for-All would cost; however, experts and analysts have determined that such a system would cost taxpayers at least tens of trillions of dollars over the next decade.
Standing Against Coronavirus and Socialism
At this time, standing against both coronavirus and socialism is imperative. Panic over COVID-19 does not change the reality that socialism is incredibly dangerous to the United States. Democrats do not know how mich Medicare-for-All will cost, yet they have no problem sticking American taxpayers with the bill.
Sanders’ latest remarks about Medicare-for-All are nothing more than his attempt to weaponize coronavirus for his own political gain. Shame on him.
