Since starting his 2020 presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders has consistently promised free handouts in various forms. From college, healthcare, housing, getting rid of debt, and even granting free high-speed internet access, Sanders continues to maintain that everything can be free.
Like other radical progressives, Sanders is purposefully misleading his supporters about the reality of the world and the reality of economics. Nothing in life comes for free; when the 2020 Democrat vows to supply “free” college, healthcare, or housing, what he really means is the government will hike the taxes of hardworking Americans and remove individual choice.
Likewise, when Sanders promises that he’s going to “erase” student loan debt and medical debt, he’s really planning on redistributing debt to folks who never asked for it.
Quite frankly, socialists like Sanders deserve to be called out for the nonsense they spew day in and day out. This occurred yesterday while the 2020 Democrat spoke about his campaign and Medicare-for-All. Reports from the Washington Examiner confirm that Sanders was directly confronted by union workers about how he plans to fund his socialized healthcare plan.
Union Workers Against Medicare-for-All
When faced when criticism about Medicare-for-All, Sanders has a tendency to claim that this plan will help working people in America. This is a very common, leftist talking point and simply doesn’t mesh with reality.
During Sanders’ remarks on Tuesday, one event attendee questioned the 2020 Democrat on whether or not Medicare-for-All would impact her healthcare. This prompted supportive cheers; however, when Sanders began to respond, other union workers decided to weigh in with their feedback.
Union workers with the Culinary Workers Union promptly jumped in and questioned how Sanders will capitalize Medicare-for-All. The approximate dozen union workers moreover chanted “union healthcare, union healthcare.” Sanders then, of course, declined to address the concerns of the working people he professed to care for so much. Instead, the 2020 Democrat simply wrapped up his statements and left.
Dodging Medicare-for-All Backlash
Sanders, like other backers of Medicare-for-All, has a tendency to dodge criticism of the plan when he can. The reality is that such a plan would not only bankrupt the middle class, but also grant government a troublingly powerful role in how and when Americans get healthcare.
Like Sanders, Elizabeth Warren has also ducked criticism of Medicare-for-All. Over the past few weeks, she’s actually taken heat for lying about the plan altogether, claiming that it won’t engender tax increases on the middle class.
Democrat voters should start asking themselves why their candidates behave so shadily when faced with negative feedback about Medicare-for-All. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen, seeing as Democrat voters have already drunk the kool-aid and internalized the lie that everything can be free.
