Bernie Sanders told the truth about Medicare-for-All… 30 years ago

Published

on

Today, Senator Bernie Sanders is the ultimate champion of socialized single-payer healthcare, often called Medicare-for-All. He’s pushing a bill that’s getting wide support from the Democrats, especially those who have presidential aspirations for 2020. How can he not know this would be catastrophic for the nation’s economy?

Actually, he does. At least he did 30-years-ago as a dashing young(er) Bernie discussing the subject. Needless to say, conservative media is having a field day with this one.

http://rare.us/rare-politics/in-1987-bernie-sanders-said-medicaid-for-all-would-bankrupt-the-nation/In 1987, as seen in a video posted by the NTK Network, as the mayor of Burlington, Vt., Sanders claimed that while he supported universal healthcare, trying to put all Americans on Medicaid (both Medicaid and Medicare costs states and the federal government about a half trillion annually) would “bankrupt the nation.”

But it’s a completely different name. Completely different name. People didn’t like the name single-payer, but they love Medicare for all because that sounds really good. Why shouldn’t everybody have — we’ve already got a Medicare program. Let’s just expand it for everybody.

In the meantime, there are plenty of other reasons to oppose any single-payer system besides the economic burden, which is substantial. The amount in taxes–the price tag for this proposal is $32 trillion–and the reduced access to specialized care, drugs, and other treatments to reduce costs is another area of concern. It’s just bad policy. On paper, it may seem sound. When it comes to application, it’s quite a nightmare.

Final Thoughts

The last thing this nation needs is MORE federal meddling with healthcare. We need to rid ourselves of Obamacare, the stepping-stone that will lead to Bernie’s plan if it’s not eliminated quickly.

Menendez gets a mistrial

Menendez gets a mistrial

Democrats on Capitol Hill and around the nation would be celebrating a good day as Senator Bob Menendez was granted a mistrial in his federal corruption case. The news was relegated to page-2 news as his colleague, Senator Al Franken, was accused of sexual misconduct.

Reports of a hopelessly deadlocked jury mean the Senator will likely not have to go to trial again following 11 weeks of drama in Newark, NJ. He and co-defendant Salomon Melgen weren’t acquitted, but the mistrial declaration means the government would have to rebuild their case to justify another go-around. Quotes from jurors indicate they didn’t have much of a case, allegedly 10 of the 12 jurors favored acquittal.

“When the prosecution rested…in my gut I was like, that was it, that’s all they had?” said Ed Norris, a 49-year-old juror from Roxbury Township.

“To those who were digging my political grave so that they could jump into my seat, I know who you are and I won’t forget you,” the Democrat said at a press conference.

The way it was investigated was wrong. The way it was prosecuted was wrong,” proclaimed the senator, thanking 12 jurors “who saw through the government’s false claims and used their Jersey common sense to reject it.”

In a statement, the Justice Department also thanked the jury, and said only “the department will carefully consider next steps in this important matter and report to the court at the appropriate time.”

As Sexual Assault Gains Attention, the Left’s Silence on Bob Menendez Is Deafening

http://dailysignal.com/2017/11/15/sexual-assault-gains-attention-lefts-silence-bob-menendez-deafening/A new Media Research Center analysis reported that ABC, CBS, and NBC devoted 40 times more of their morning and evening TV newscast coverage this past week to Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore’s alleged sexual assault accusers than to the ongoing federal trial of one of the Democrats’ most powerful, visible, and entrenched figures on Capitol Hill.

Four years ago, when the FBI raided the Florida home of Democratic donor and eye doctor Salomon Melgen, Menendez suddenly remembered that he had failed to pay back his “hermano” $60,000 for private jet flights to the Caribbean—where Melgen owns a tony home in the private Casa de Campo resort.

Muskets are now in the cross-hairs

Muskets are now in the cross-hairs

It’s been a staple of the gun grabber left to invoke muskets when referring to the 2nd amendment. The contention is usually that the founding fathers wouldn’t have affirmed the civil right of self defense IF they had known what the future would hold with ‘military style’ and repeating firearms. Of course, this is balderdash of the first order given that they were learned men with knowledge of how technology had progressed from the past and what it would do the same in the future. In addition, repeating firearms had already been created at the time (e.g. the Puckle gun), the technology was in a nascent state at the time and the military was the source of most firearms.

That being said, there is now a report from the Free Beacon that Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords’s gun control group has released a warning of the danger of muzzle loaders [Essentially muskets] and other devices:

Muzzleloaders are firearms that must be loaded through the end of the barrel with powder, wadding and a projecticle [sic]. Muzzleloaders fell out of favor as a firearm of choice almost a century ago, and are generally seen as primitive antiques. That’s why federal law generally exempts them from regulation. Cue the .50 calibre muzzleloader, which delivers a particularly lethal .50 caliber round.

Granted, this is within the context of a musket with suppressor, but the gun grabber refrain has always been that we’re only ‘allowed’ these weapons under the auspices of the 2nd amendment. So now they have ‘jumped the shark’ and are now going after technology from centuries past.

By the way, one of the best known examples of the ‘Military Style’ of the day was the .75 calibre ‘Brown Bess’ musket carried by the Redcoats in the Revolutionary war. This was the reason the founding fathers placed the commonsense civil right of self defense near the top of the Bill of Rights, and now even that technology is unacceptable to the gun grabbers.

Paging Stuart Smalley. Al Franken needs your help… oh never mind

Paging Stuart Smalley Al Franken needs your helpoh never mind

Even if Justice Roy Moore goes down in flames, maybe he will take this New York punk who left his heart in Minnesota with him.  Who is the “Big Fat Idiot” now Mr. Franken?  Rush Limbaugh is still going strong, while you (and Ed Schultz, and even Mike Huckabee) failed to take him out.  All I can say to Franken is; “walk on home boy” because the “cowboys from hell” are coming for Y-O-U and I am so happy about it.  You would be lucky if Moore passed the ‘cemetery gates‘ with you.

Senator Frankencreep: Leeann Tweeden accuses Senator Al Franken of sexual assault

http://noqreport.com/2017/11/16/senator-frankencreep-leeann-tweeden-accuses-senator-al-franken-sexual-assault/Tweeden’s article on KABC is startlingly detailed, accusing the former comedian of forcefully kissing her without permission. He then participated in a “funny” picture showing him groping the former Playboy model while she slept.

Should she be believed? According to Franken last month, yes:

http://www.kabc.com/2017/11/16/leeann-tweeden-on-senator-al-franken/He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.

I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time.
