Published

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.

Biden Says Politics Is Going ‘To Come Back And Whack’ President Trump

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden recently decided to take a swipe at President Donald Trump, claiming that politics would “whack” the commander-in-chief, leading many to wonder what exactly is meant by that particular comment. Biden, 76, made the comment during a town hall special broadcast on CNN, in which he attempted to explain how modern day politics had gotten so out of control under Sen. Mitch McConnell and Trump. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Politics today has gotten so mean and ugly and dirty and everybody questioning motive and not focusing at all on trying to put things together instead of disagreeing on substance, you go to motive,” said Biden. “It has become so, so difficult for Republicans to be able to, unless they have real courage, to stand up and take on the president even if they think he should be taken on.” He went on to tie in McConnell and referenced his decision to block a vote to confirm Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Biden claimed he suggested Garland to President Barack Obama because he thought Republicans would vote to confirm him. “They know what they were doing was wrong,” Biden said. He added, “The politics has gotten just so out of whack, but it’s going to come back and whack — heh — this guy.” https://youtu.be/vwzsbIrVn88 Some individuals were upset by the comment, claiming it was a joke about “whacking” — killing — the president. Others mocked Biden for the lame comment. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1194080088582754304 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1194084597270749184 Biden is the current frontrunner in the Democratic Party presidential primary, though it’s been a fight and struggle for him to maintain that top spot in a crowded field that includes Sen. Elizabeth Warren and many others.

Social media companies are starting to crack down on any mentions of the “whistleblower” whose complaint about President Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian leadership is responsible for the current impeachment inquiry, according to a brand new report. While the alleged name of the whistleblower has been making the rounds online in alternative media websites, social media giants like Facebook and YouTube are calling the publishing of the individual’s name a violation of their “coordinating harm policy.” Here’s more from Fox News: On Saturday, Twitter was the only major social network to resist the change, with users still free to publish the name of the alleged whistleblower. Tweets from big-name conservative Twitter users like Candace Owens and Donald Trump, Jr. revealing the name have gone viral in recent days. “Per our private information policy, any tweets that include personally identifiable information about any individual, including the alleged whistleblower, would be in violation of the Twitter Rules,” The Post reported.
