UNREAL!

If it were up to Bernie Sanders, taxes would skyrocket in order to pay for social programs. Everyone knows this.

The problem is how high taxes would jump.

In order to pay for his “Medicare for All” plan, it would be up there.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) admitted during an interview with the Washington Post on Tuesday that Medicare for All, his preferred government-run health care system, could cost up to $40 trillion over a 10-year span.

The Washington Post’s Robert Costa asked Sanders to put a number on what his proposal might cost.

“Somewhere between $30 trillion and $40 trillion over a 10-year period,” Sanders responded.

WATCH:

According to the 2020 presidential candidate, teachers can be paid as much as Major League Baseball players.

Or something like that.

Check this out…

Self-confessed socialist candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, recently ripped pro-baseball because its players make more than teachers. But to many Americans, it looks like Bernie lacks any understanding about the economics of the matter.

He tweeted:

If we are a nation that can pay baseball players hundreds of millions of dollars, don’t tell me we can’t afford to pay teachers the salaries they deserve.

Just in case you don’t see the problem here, check out these reactions:

Did I miss something or has the government started paying the baseball players, or is it still private entities? He is as dumb as his minions who are not bright enough to think for themselves.

As someone that covers sports business, let me say that Bernie is woefully off here on why the difference. As sad a commentary as this is, baseball is entertainment. It’s why there are multi-billion TV deals and 70M+ attend games in person. I thought Bernie understood economics.

There are 750 Major League Baseball players. In the world. 70 million fans voluntarily paid to watch MLB players perform in 2018. This is an apples and asteroids argument.

I think teachers should be paid more, but you do understand players are only paid well because people are paying to go see them… right? I’m not gonna drop $80 to go see a 3rd grade teacher for 3hrs.

Baseball players are paid in the private sector, teachers are predominantly government employees. Perhaps we should privatize education and make it competitive so there is demand for exceptional teachers and they could demand premium pay!

Save conservative media!

Trump Administration Set to Cut Food Stamp Benefits for Nearly One Million People (Details)

Is this a big risk for Trump?

It’s probably a good bet to say that most people on food stamps didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016 and won’t vote for him in 2020. Some people have yet to figure out that Democrat politicians are insistent on keeping people in their current economic positions for the entirety of their lives, handing out free stuff in order to remain in office. Therefore, the administration isn’t exactly taking a big risk by gutting the program. Here’s the plan, via The Hill: The Trump administration is set to announce a plan that would cut food stamp benefits for approximately 750,000 people, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday. The plan, which is scheduled to be announced Wednesday, will make it more difficult for states to gain waivers from a requirement that beneficiaries of food stamps work or are enrolled in a vocational training program, according to Bloomberg, which cited sources familiar with the matter. Continued: The work or vocational training requirement applies to recipients who are “able-bodied” or those who are not caring for a child under six years old. Under the current guidelines, states can receive a waver for work requirements for those receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or its former name, food stamps, if its unemployment rate is at least 20 percent above the national rate, according to Bloomberg. To label Barack Obama “a conservative” is absolutely wild. Lefties are turning on Barry now because he’s had a few choice words for the likes of AOC, Bernie Sanders, and others, though, indirectly. It just goes to show that there is no low the left won’t stoop to tear down Republicans, conservatism, capitalism, and everything else that makes America great. Perspective: Democratic presidential candidates still can’t figure out how to talk about the most popular figure in…

Biden Goes On Record, Says He Will Not Appear As Witness In Senate Impeachment Trail

Will the GOP subpoena?

The whole Ukraine/impeachment nonsense started because a whistleblower allegedly overheard President Trump demand that the nation’s leader investigate Joe and Hunter Biden and Burisma. As we’re all well aware, there is no evidence to support that notion. Joe Biden used his status as vice president, at the time, to ensure his ne’er-do-well son secured a solid gig. In fact, Joe even interfered on a number of occasions. Even though his whole fiasco circles the Biden’s in a way that is undeniable, the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee is saying he will not appear as a witness in the Senate. Is he scared? WATCH: [email protected] tells @pdoocy he will not appear voluntarily if called as a witness in Senate impeachment trial, “No I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball. The President is the one who has committed impeachable crimes and I’m not going to let him divert from that.” https://twitter.com/WardDPatrick/status/1202376427083051008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202376427083051008&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Reactions: I hear Hunter has indicated he will gladly testify as an expert witness for $50,000 a month. https://twitter.com/PostTweeter/status/1202380595185278984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202380595185278984&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F so Biden thinks Trump should agree with everything the Dems want or it’s obstruction of justice, but it’s not if he doesn’t want to. https://twitter.com/nanabooboo19/status/1202384158233747457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202384158233747457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F What is Joe Biden scared of?
