Sanders came so, so close last time against Hillary Clinton, only not really. But the Bernie Bros have their mythology. And now he’s back with his campaign peddling the idea that he is surging even as he is falling in the polls. It’s like the Soviet propaganda machine springing into action. As Bernie craters in the polls, they say Comrade is rising.
Now Sanders has come out to declare you people will be delighted to pay more in taxes.
Sanders actually believes that Americans will embrace socialism and be willing to take massive tax hikes to pay for it all.
“I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right,” Sanders claimed. “I live 50 miles away from the Canadian border. You go to the doctor any time you want. You don’t take out your wallet. You have heart surgery, you have a heart transplant, you come out of the hospital, it costs you nothing. Your kids in many countries around the world can go to the public colleges and universities tuition-free, wages in many cases are higher.”
No one is going to be delighted to pay higher taxes for a healthcare system as efficient as a Department of Motor Vehicles. Remember, Sanders is the guy who defended Soviet era bread lines as proof Soviets did not starve.
