BERNIE: ‘France Provides Generous Retirement Benefits, Why Can’t We?’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.06.19

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continued to double-down on his calls for far-left socialist policies across America Wednesday afternoon; asking why “the wealthiest country on Earth” can’t provide “free healthcare” and “free tuition.”

“We have got to think big, not small. Canada guarantees free health care for all, Finland provides free tuition at public colleges, France provides generous retirement benefits. We are the wealthiest country on Earth. Why can’t we do the same?” asked the self-described Democratic-Socialist.

Sanders conveniently fails to mention the unemployment rate in France was a whopping 9.3% as of August 2018, compared to just 3.9% in the United States.
