Bless his heart, Senator Bernie Sanders is consistent.
Consistently liberal in his social policies. Consistently Marxist in his economic policies.
In other words, he is consistently wrong. That he finds himself too liberal to even work within the structure of the Democratic party and thus identifies as an independent speaks volumes.
He’s really like a guy you’d sort of want to put on display so you could observe him from all angles, trying to figure out what makes him tick.
In a perverse way, he needs to be in the Senate to show us what a true believer in the aforementioned doctrines and policies really looks and sounds like.
He thus serves as a warning to what could become of this country if those holding to the same ideologies as Bernie were ever to gain control.
As long as the nation is going broke, why not accelerate that process and get it over with? Hence we have Bernie’s proposal that all illegal aliens receive free health care.
The title of his single payer bill is very descriptive and does have the virtue of being honest: “Medicare For All Act of 2017.”
And with the passage of that act, all our health care problems would be solved, simply by dumping us all into one enormous program.
From The Daily Caller:
“Illegal immigrants will seemingly be eligible to receive Medicare benefits under Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ single payer health care bill, released Wednesday.
“The bill, dubbed ‘Medicare For All Act of 2017,’ extends an enhanced version of Medicare coverage, absent virtually all out of pocket costs, to every U.S. resident, regardless of age or immigration status.
“‘IN GENERAL.—Every individual who is a resident of the United States is entitled to benefits for health care services under this Act.
The Secretary shall promulgate a rule that provides criteria for determining residency for eligibility purposes under this Act,’ the bill reads.
“The language suggests that the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants who currently reside in the U.S. will be eligible to receive extensive medical and dental coverage at no personal expense.“
And dental coverage, too? The author of this article must pay for his own dental care. How does one become an illegal alien?
“If passed, the legislation would effectively eliminate the private insurance market by instituting the federal government as the sole insurance purchaser.
The bill includes a four-year rollout period in which coverage would gradually expand from adults aged 55 and older and children, to middle aged and young adult residents.”
Of course, this article contains a generous dose of sarcasm. It’s just difficult to treat such policies built on failed ideologies seriously.
Somehow, there are people in this country who still believe that a bloated bureaucracy will somehow manage the health care needs and costs of the citizens of our country as well as aliens, illegal and otherwise.
Illegal aliens, beware. In the unlikely event such a bill were to ever become law, we recommend you flee the U.S. immediately…your health will depend on it.
