Bernie Admits Real Cost of 'Medicare For All' - Numbers Are Absolutely JAW DROPPING

Linkedin Share

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.

From NTK Network:

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.

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!
