REALITY CHECK: Bernie Sanders Admits ‘Healthcare Not Free,’ Will Require Higher Taxes

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.19

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders publicly acknowledged the reality surrounding America’s healthcare system Monday; saying “Obviously, healthcare is not free” and will require increased taxes.

“Obviously, healthcare is not free. We pay for it through premiums and out-of-pocket expenses. In Canada, it’s payed through taxes. We’ll have to do that,” Sanders told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

President Trump called-out Bernie Sanders and the mainstream media Monday; saying the Democratic Socialist should be labeled “a racist” after referring to Baltimore as a “third world country.”

“Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie must now be labeled a Racist, just as a Republican would if he used that term and standard!” Trump tweeted.

“The fact is, Baltimore can be brought back, maybe even to new heights of success and glory, but not with King Elijah and that crew. When the leaders of Baltimore want to see the City rise again, I am in a very beautiful oval shaped office waiting for your call!” he added.

The President is referring to comments Sanders made in 2015.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during a visit to the city’s West Baltimore section in 2015, the Baltimore Sun reported. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

“We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable,” he added

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders unveiled his latest ‘Medicare for All’ proposal Wednesday; announcing his plan to transform Medicare into a full-fledged universal healthcare program during a four-year transition that would eliminate private insurance companies.

“Sanders’ plan is the most ambitious by far of Democrats’ slate of bills aimed at expanding health coverage, proposing a total restructuring of the the national health care system that would effectively eliminate employer sponsored insurance and other government programs like Medicaid,” reports Politico.

Sanders’ plan would also bar employers and businesses from providing healthcare options that compete with the government-run insurance scheme.

While the proposal doesn’t specify the associated costs, experts say the program would likely cost $30 trillion over the next decade.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders refused to accept a recent study that showed his “medicare for all” program would cost US taxpayers over $32 trillion; releasing a new video that claims universal healthcare would actually save $2 trillion over ten years.

Sanders released the video on social media just hours after a George Mason University study estimated the astronomical price-tag associated with the potential proposal; finding it would likely cost over $32.6 trillion.

“The study shows that  ‘Medicare for All’ would save the American people $2 trillion over a ten year period… That’s what was in the study,” said Sanders.
