Do you want to pay more in taxes? What if it meant the government completely took over healthcare? Would you be interested then!? Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) seems to think “a lot of people” would absolutely love it.

No joke. The 2020 presidential candidate actually said these words. It’s as if he thinks all Americans are ignorant simply because his followers are the sharpest knives in the drawer. From Daily Wire:

Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said on Wednesday night during a CNN interview that “a lot of people” would love to pay more in taxes if it meant that they got government-run health care.

Talk about out of touch with reality, huh?

Bernie can’t buy a clue and he certianly couldn’t hit water from a boat.

To see rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sanders in the same room is frightening enough.

To hear them talking policy is painful.

To see that they want to turn the post office into a bank without knowing it lost over $2 billion in three months is terrifying.

And yet, it happened…

About the post office losing a boat load of money, via Reason:

The U.S. Postal Service lost more than $2 billion during the second quarter of the fiscal year, putting it on track to finish the current year more than $7 billion in the red—way worse than the nearly $4 billion in losses it posted last year.

In its quarterly fiscal report, published today, the Post Office reported small decreases in mail volume and overall revenue compared to the same quarter of 2018. Its big losses are driven by a sharp increase in expenses, primarily workers’ compensation costs, pension liabilities, and payments for retirees’ health benefits.

Check out their super awkward hug…

WATCH:

If president, the 2020 hopeful says private insurance companies will go bye-bye and you will certainly pay more in taxes.

Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you will!

WATCH:

Sanders loves America like Barack Obama respected the Constitution – not at all.
