Bernie Says No More Private Healthcare

Bernie Sanders is a self-described “Democratic Socialist.” That means he wants to take your hard-earned money and give it to somebody else. Namely, the federal government.

His biggest promise is to create a government-run healthcare program called “Medicare for All.” This would eliminate all private health insurance companies and force everyone to use it.

You can just imagine the kind of problems this would create.

The biggest problem, of course, is that the government won’t really pay for this program. You will, through massive taxes. Read more…

Trump Scores 30 Billion China Trade Victory

President Trump has worked hard for the American people.

That’s the entire purpose of his trade war with China: he wants to stop China’s unfair trade practices, for the sake of our citizens.

That’s why he hit the Eastern superpower with heavy tariffs, and the results speak for themselves:

It’s a $30 billion windfall for America!

That’s how much extra we’ve brought in after the tariffs dropped in July 2018, and it’s just another significant victory for the Trump administration. Read more…

Top Billionaire Flees Major Sanctuary City to Red State

Sanctuary cities are experiencing a major exodus, and the biggest one in the country just lost a billionaire.

The sad reality is that Democrat-run sanctuary cities have many problems. You’d think that “enlightened” liberals would transform their cities into bastions of prosperity and peace.

Not a chance.

The biggest cities in America are being run by Democrats. They also happen to be filled with crime and border jumpers.

And to top it all off, taxes in their regions is through the roof. You think it’s bad for the working man? Even business owners feel the pain. Read more…

Bernie Proposes Even More Expensive Green New Deal

Not to be outdone by upstart socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), 2020 contender Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) has proposed a staggering $16 TRILLION Green New Deal of his own not merely to tackle “climate change” but social justice as well. According to the New York Times, the proposed Sanders’ bill would declare “climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.” It also mandates ZERO fossil fuels by 2050… all paid for by “making the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share.” Something tells us that Americans won’t take kindly to checking Facebook on wooden smartphones.

Here’s more from Town Hall…

Despite not voting for the Green New Deal in the senate this past winter, Vermont Democratic Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a Green New Deal of his own on Thursday as part of his 2020 campaign platform. The price tag for the global warming defeating -racial injustice combatting – pro-socialism on steroids catch-all bill is a whopping 16 trillion dollars and zero cents.

As noted by the New York Times, the proposed bill by Sanders would declare “climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.”

Majority of Swing-State Voters Don’t Prefer Universal Coverage

A new survey commissioned by the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future found that nearly two-thirds of swing-state voters prefer lower healthcare costs over universal health care coverage, or otherwise think ObamaCare 1.0 and possibly a future “2.0” Medicare-for-All overhauls of our healthcare is a terrible idea. The survey also found that 46 percent of American voters regard health care as the most critical issue with the economy coming in second at 40 percent and another 40 percent citing immigration.  The states surveyed included: Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio – all states that the Left cannot afford to lose but whose candidates are nearly all touting a healthcare coup by Big Government. Good news for President Trump.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Nearly two-thirds of swing-state voters favor lowering healthcare costs over providing universal health care, according to a poll released Thursday.

A survey released Thursday conducted by Locust Street Group commissioned by the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future found that 64 percent of American battleground state voters prefer lowering healthcare costs over ensuring universal health care. In contrast, only 36 percent of swing-state voters back universal coverage over reducing healthcare costs.

The battleground states include Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio, all crucial states for presidential elections and congressional races.

Kamala Confesses She’ll Kill Private Health Insurance

If you like your employer-provided health insurance, you CAN’T keep it if Kamala Harris is elected POTUS in 2020, according to a recent interview with CNN “New Day” cohost John Berman. “Yes, they may be able to keep a private insurance, but it’s not their private insurance, correct?” the CNN host asked Harris, who uttered, “They get to make the choice.” Berman then jumped in to clarify that you cannot have your socialist healthcare and your private healthcare, explaining that Harris’s plan is “basically allowing for a Medicare Advantage plan, where insurers can enter that plan, and they can choose it if they want to.” It’s a Leftist game of heads I win, tails you lose.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

During an interview on CNN Thursday morning, presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was forced into admitting her health care proposal would strip Americans of their employer-provided health insurance plans.

“You said your opponents were lying, or weren’t being honest about [your new health care proposal],” CNN “New Day” co-host John Berman said to Harris. “The issue of your private insurance — one of the things that has been charged is that you will not be able to keep your private insurance. If we get insurance though CNN, if GM workers get insurance through GM — under your plan, they will not be able to keep that private insurance. Is that true?”

“My plan will separate your health care from your employer, meaning your employer will no longer dictate the kind of health care you receive,” Harris answered.

Sanders: Oil & Gas Industry “Criminal”

During Tuesday night’s Democratic debates, climate alarmist and committed socialist Bernie Sanders slammed the fossil fuel industry for its “short-term profits” that are “destroying this planet.” “We’ve got to ask ourselves a simple question: What do you do with an industry that willingly, for billions of dollars in short-term profits, is destroying this planet? I say that is criminal activity that cannot be allowed to continue.” His fellow candidates, of course, chomped at the bit promoting a “green industrial policy” except no word on how to make it affordable or feasible short of sending us back into the Stone Age.

Here’s more from OK Energy Today…

Democratic hopefuls once again only discussed their climate plans briefly Tuesday night, but the discussion managed to span issues including the Flint, Mich., drinking water crisis to a declaration by Sen. Bernie Sanders that the fossil fuel industry is criminal.
“We’ve got to ask ourselves a simple question: What do you do with an industry that willingly, for billions of dollars in short-term profits, is destroying this planet. I say that is criminal activity that cannot be allowed to continue,” Sanders (I-Vt.) said according to a report by POLITICO.
The response came after more than an hour without a specific climate question.

Now There’s a “Green New Deal” for the Poor

Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are teaming up to introduce the “Green New Deal” for poor people: the “Climate Equity Act.” The plan proposes regulations that address: “impact on low-income communities, which are disproportionately affected by climate change.” Unsurprisingly, no specifics were offered on how the bill will put entire industries out of business thus creating an even greater economic crisis for those purported to benefit from such regulations. In other words, the Left is bereft of any shred of logic.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced Monday that they will jointly introduce a bill related to the “Green New Deal” called the “Climate Equity Act,” aimed at poor communities.

The two touted their proposal as a “landmark” piece of legislation.

Harris is already a co-sponsor of the Senate version of Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” which aims to move the entire U.S. economy from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources in a decade, alongside a raft of welfare policies.

Biden “Can’t Promise” You Can Keep Your Doctor

Former Vice President Joe Biden is running on a “public option” healthcare proposal [read Obamacare 2.0]… and has already confessed he “can’t promise” that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. “Well, look, I can’t promise – I can promise them that if, in fact, the private insurance they have is kept by their company, they keep whoever that plan allows. That’s all I can promise.” A keystone of the new plan is to reinforce ObamaCare and expand coverage with a new, free “public health insurance option,” which will undermine the free market, causing “private” health insurance to implode under the taxpayer burden of socialized medicine. In other words, VA healthcare for everyone.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Former Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday he “can’t promise” individuals will be allowed to keep their existing doctors if his new public option healthcare proposal is implemented.

Biden, who was instrumental in helping President Barack Obama pass the Affordable Care Act (ACA), made the admission to the Washington Examiner while campaigning in Nevada.

“Well look, I can’t promise — I can promise them that if in fact the private insurance they have is kept by their company, they keep whoever that plan allows,” Biden told the outlet. “That’s all I can promise.”

Democrats Vote to Double Minimum Wage

Forget a market-driven economy. The Democrat-led House just voted 231-199 to double the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, with just six Democrats voting against the “Raise the Wage Act.” This bill itself will incrementally raise the minimum wage-the first increase in a decade, if passed-over the next seven years. Yet, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that 1.3 million people could lose their jobs, while other scenarios predict as many as 3.7 million could get a pink slip. Translation: redistribution of wealth never ends well.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The Democrat-led House voted to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, more than double the current rate of $7.25, and the first proposed increase in a decade.

The legislation, approved 231 to 199, now goes to the Republican-led Senate, which is not expected to take it up. Six Democrats voted against the bill, while three Republicans voted in favor of it.

The bill, the Raise the Wage Act, would increase the minimum wage in increments over seven years.

The new wage floor was originally intended to be phased in over five years, but it was amended this week at the urging of centrist Democrats to have an extra year.
