Published

on

Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders recently stated that he doesn’t need an “exact detailed plan” right now to explain how he plans to pay for the massively expensive “Medicare for all” plan he wants to enact should he become president.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“You’re asking me to come up with an exact detailed plan of how every American — how much you’re going to pay more in taxes, how much I’m going to pay. I don’t think I have to do that right now,” the Democratic presidential candidate said in an interview with CNBC.

Sanders said the means of funding the current healthcare system is regressive. He added, without elaborating, that his plan would finance the new system by taxing wealthy Americans.

His campaign has “laid out a variety of options that are progressive,” Sanders said.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is also running for president, is a big believer in the Medicare for All idea and has also been dancing around questions about how such a program would be funded, having been specifically asked if it will require a hike in taxes on the middle class.

Sanders has stated in the past that at least part of the money needed to run the program will come from increased taxes on the middle class.The Vermont senator recently spoke to CNBC and said it was too early to elaborate on the details of his plan.

“At the end of the day, we will pay for every nickel of Medicare for All, and it will save the overwhelming majority of the American people,” Sanders said.

Published

Comedian Tracy Morgan recently came to the defense of President Trump, saying that people who are criticizing his response to the coronavirus crisis should focus on supporting each other instead, especially while this outbreak is ongoing. Morgan spoke on the “Today” show Wednesday saying, “The struggle is real. People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country got sick. So, it’s difficult for him. We’ve all got to pull together as people, now.” “Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger. It’s here now. We just got to be together. We’ve got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So, let’s just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do,” Morgan went on to say.

Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died. Morgan is spot on here. There’s far more constructing things we could be doing with our time right now than attacking President Trump. The leftist media has made this whole outbreak into an excuse for further ripping the country apart by slamming the president over and over again, especially about things he…

Nikki Haley Says Management Of Coronavirus Not Trump’s Responsibility, But Governors

Published

on

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley recently stated that victories and failures in the battle against the coronavirus that has swept across the country in the last month falls on the shoulders of governors and is there responsibility to handle, not the president’s. And you know what, she’s absolutely right. Haley, who’s most recent posting included being a United States ambassador to the United Nations, penned a piece for the NY Times that was published on Wednesday that delved into the reasons why governors are the ones ultimately responsible for responding to the coronavirus crisis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “In today’s crisis, governors from both parties have exemplified strong leadership,” she wrote. “They know their residents and their state’s needs better than anyone in the federal government. In the state-federal partnership, governors are in the best position to control what happens on the ground, better than any president could be.” Haley explained that governors are responsible for connecting federal efforts from organizations such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the cities and counties that have the most need. She added that governors are supposed to be aware of their states’ supplies for emergency situations and have the relationships with local leaders to best address the situation. “As our highest nationally elected leader, of course President Trump has enormous responsibility in this unprecedented crisis, and he is marshaling the federal response on a massive scale. But in implementing plans to save people’s lives and keep our economy afloat, look no further than the governors,” Haley penned. Haley went on to say that the coronavirus serves as a reminder of the importance of federalism and why it’s so critical to allow individual states and their governments to handle these sort of situations noting, “Governors are the most successful when…
