Not Even Democrats Want to Pay for Medicare for All
In Bernie Sanders’ fantasy world, Americans are just itching to pay more in taxes to get all the free stuff he’s promising. “I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right," Sanders has claimed. To his credit, Sanders hasn’t been shy about the fact that to pay for his Medicare for All plan he’d have to raise taxes on the middle class.
Who exactly are these Americans who are salivating over the idea of paying more taxes to get “free” healthcare? Have you met any? I haven’t. There’s a reason Elizabeth Warren doesn’t want to admit she’ll have to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for her plan.
Still, Bernie doesn’t deserve any points for honesty, because even those who support Medicare for All in principle don’t want to pay for it.
