Senator Bernie Sanders made it to the podium this week to introduce a plan for “Medicare for all”. What he fails to realize is that healthcare, like all other scarce resources, is not, and cannot be, a right.
The troubling thing is that he refuses to acknowledge all of the negative aspects of the socialized healthcare in countries like Canada. By completely disregarding evidence, Bernie does his constituents a huge disservice. This is the sign of a truly stupid person: someone who refuses to change their mind on policy even in the wake of massive amounts of evidence contrary to their position.
This is nothing new from Sanders, or from politicians in general. They promise the sky, insist they’re honest, deceive their followers, and continue to plunge the country into a ditch.
