Bernie Sanders unveiled new components of his key policy proposals on the campaign trail over the weekend; saying he “hopes” to give free healthcare and tuition-free college to “undocumented” people across the United States.
“Let me say something which has gotten me into trouble. I am a supporter of Medicare for All, and that means that everybody in the country has healthcare, including the undocumented,” Sanders told a crowd of supporters.
“When I say I want to make public colleges and universities tuition free, that also includes the undocumented. I hope as soon as possible the undocumented will not be undocumented, that’s the goal,” he added.

Sanders made similar promises of more “freebies” last week; baselessly asserting that new mothers will save $23,000 on childbirth under his universal healthcare scheme.
“Average cost of childbirth in the United States: $32,000
Average cost of childbirth with Medicare for All: $0,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders made national headlines last month after suggesting “population control” and “reproductive rights” in third world countries was necessary to combat climate change.
“Empowering women to curb population growth seems reasonable to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” asked an audience member.
“The answer is yes. Women have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions… In poor countries around the world, where women do not want to have large numbers of babies, where they can have the opportunity to use birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very strongly support,” said Sanders.
ANOTHER FREEBIE? Bernie Sanders Vows to Provide ‘Year-Round, Free Universal School Meals’
Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders called for another federal program this week; saying the government should provide “year-round, free universal school meals” for every student in America.
“‘School lunch debt’ should not exist in the wealthiest country in the history of the world. When we are in the White House, we are going to provide year-round, free universal school meals,” posted Sanders on Instagram.
The school lunch program is the latest far-left proposal from Sanders, whose ‘Green New Deal’ would effectively nationalize upwards of 30% of the entire American economy.
“Atop our existing government spending, comprising some 40% of GDP, the Vermont Senator wouldn’t just nationalize one-fifth of the economy with a ‘Medicare For all’ bill eliminating private health insurance. Under his Green New Deal plan, he would also nationalize most of the energy sector,” reports the Washington Examiner.
“At a mere $16.3 trillion, the Sanders plan would go beyond simply spending measures to increase climate-focused research and development. It would literally centralize the means of domestic energy production,” adds the Examiner.
“What we need to do is have an aggressive federal government. You can’t nibble around the edges anymore. We need to transform our energy system, that means a massive increase in sustainable energy,” Sanders told MSNBC.

“Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, Greenland’s ice shelf is melting, and the Arctic is on fire. People across the country and the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of our climate crisis, as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes upend entire communities, ecosystems, economies, and ways of life, as well as endanger millions of lives. Communities of color, working class people, and the global poor have borne and will bear this burden disproportionately,” writes Sanders.
APOCALYPSE NOW? BBC News Claims Humans Have Just 18 MONTHS to ‘Save the Planet’
Forget the 12 year deadline touted by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto O’Rourke, and Bernie Sanders; the BBC News is now reporting that humans have just 18 months to “save the planet.”
“Do you remember the good old days when we had ‘12 years to save the planet’? Now it seems, there’s a growing consensus that the next 18 months will be critical in dealing with the global heating crisis, among other environmental challenges,” reports the BBC. “Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that to keep the rise in global temperatures below 1.5C this century, emissions of carbon dioxide would have to be cut by 45% by 2030.”
“But today, observers recognise that the decisive, political steps to enable the cuts in carbon to take place will have to happen before the end of next year,” adds the article. “The idea that 2020 is a firm deadline was eloquently addressed by one of the world’s top climate scientists, speaking back in 2017.”
“The climate math is brutally clear: While the world can’t be healed within the next few years, it may be fatally wounded by negligence until 2020,” said one scientist.
Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his non-stop climate crusade last week; suggesting the USA should direct upwards of $1.5 trillion to reduce the global risks posed by rising temperatures.
“Instead of spending $1.5 trillion on weapons to kill one other, let us unite against the common enemy that is climate change,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders blamed the current heat-wave sweeping the Northeast USA on Donald Trump’s two-year presidency Friday; saying the Commander-in-Chief is “is threatening the lives of our children.”
“The past 5 years are the hottest on record
This June is the hottest June recorded
Thousands die in heatwaves around the world
Trump’s ignorance is threatening the lives of our children. For their sake, we must stand up to the fossil fuel industry and build a green economy,” posted Sanders on social media.
