President Trump Slams Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare-For-All” Bill

Politicians love to call for “unity”, but at the same time they are constantly calling out their opposition.

Senator Bernie Sanders has denounced his republican colleagues in congress, saying that they have “no credibility” when it comes to healthcare.

“Please don’t lecture us on health care,” Sanders said, during a speech in which he introduced a medicare-for-all bill. “You, the Republican Party, have no credibility.”

What Sanders, and many on the left fail to realize is the fact that they lost the election. They don’t have control of congress. America literally told them “we don’t want single-payer healthcare”, and yet here they are beating that tired old drum.

President Trump was quick to respond to Sanders. White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, in a press conference that, the president thinks this is “a horrible idea”.

“I think that the president as well as the majority of the country knows that the single payer system that the Democrats are proposing is a horrible idea,” she said. “I can’t think of anything worse than having the government be more involved in your health care instead of less involved.”

A huge question on every republican’s mind is “how will we pay for this?”. According to Sanders, the answer is MORE taxes!

“Your taxes may go up… [but] that expense will be more than offset by the money you are saving by the elimination of private insurance costs.”

How much do we trust the government to handle covering health insurance? We’ve seen our education decline since the national government took over. We know what happens when government tries to impose regulations on industry. Now, we are expected to believe they can handle our healthcare! Not so fast my friends…

This bill has no chance of passing in a republican controlled congress. So, for the time being, there won’t be any major change to health insurance, but that won’t prevent Sanders and his fellow democrats from supporting the bill.

Once upon a time health insurance was something you hoped to attain through employment. In those days, if one wanted something, they worked hard to get it. Now, people are of the mind that health insurance is a God-given right. Here’s a news flash: it’s not.

Democrats like to use the word “healthcare” as though republicans are preventing people from being healthy. Nobody is stopping people from taking care of their health. The issue is, Senator Sanders, like many others, believes people should be given things for free. That explains why millennials adore him: he gives into their love of entitlements.

At the end of the day it comes down to a difference of personal beliefs. Some people believe that with hard work, you can have the things you want. Others believe that the government should control more aspects of life, and the wealthy will foot the bill.

While you can’t blame people for wanting things without having to work for it, Senator Sanders could do a better job of making his case without being divisive. A good idea should be able to stand on it’s own, without insulting your opposition.
