Bernie Sanders is at it again.
Actually, they didn’t.
This is another example of a socialist lying to people because of his ideology. He misrepresents the costs by saying the projected numbers show that by saying healthcare costs would be cheaper under government control. In fact, it will probably be much worse as historical numbers have shown that government controlled programs often cost far more to implement than projected. See Obamacare.
Without ANY evidence to back up these savings, he declares the government program a success and wants to thank the Koch Brothers, the same people he vilified for years for making his case.
In case anyone wants historical numbers, socialism has failed repeatedly over the years and millions of people have died. Sanders is no better than the prior figures of the past. During his tenure as a “devoted” socialist, he’s amassed enough wealth to become the 1% of a capitalist society he says harms people. He forgets that the same ideology he represents has led to the most deaths of humanity since the beginning of the 20th century.
I remember when Bernie Sanders grilled Alan Greenspan in a hearing about how the Federal Reserve’s policies did little to affect the social and political issues facing Americans. It was an interesting argument because most of what he railed against was actually a legislative responsibility, not the responsibility of the Federal Reserve.
This is the elected representative of the people of Vermont. He is as uninformed about history as he is about facts. He has enriched himself with his political power, while his wife nearly bankrupted a private university, saddling it with excessive debt due to poor management.
And these are the people who want to take your medical care decisions away from you because they think they can save you money based on predicting the future?
