REPORT: Major Socialist Gov’t Just Collapsed Due to Costs of Universal Health Care

SHOCKER!

Universal health care is a great idea – in theory.

Of course, taxes must be raised if everyone is going to be cared for by daddy government.

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may want to learn from what is happening in Finland.

Because their government just collapsed due to the rising costs of…wait for it…universal health care.

From Free Beacon:

The government of Finland collapsed Friday due to the rising cost of universal health care and the prime minister’s failure to enact reforms to the system.

Prime Minister Juha Sipila and the rest of the cabinet resigned after the governing coalition failed to pass reforms in parliament to the country’s regional government and health services, the Wall Street Journal reports. Finland faces an aging population, with around 26 percent of its citizens expected to be over 65 by the year 2030, an increase of 5 percent from today.

Sipila’s reforms “intended to remove power from the 295 municipalities that currently oversee health and social care, and place responsibility within a leaner, more efficient system of 18 elected regional authorities,” according to the Journal. The prime minister also wanted patients to be able to choose from a range of public and private providers.

There’s probably a very, very decent chance that Ocasio-Cortez will run for president in 2024 – even if Democrats somehow manage to defeat President Trump in 2020 and have an incumbent seeking re-election.

During a recent interview, socialist filmmaker Michael Moore suggested amending the Constitution so Ocasio-Cortez could run for president before the age of 35.

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez believes President Trump is a racist.

Ocasio-Cortez: “The president certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.”

When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy. When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s, it’s night and day.

Ocasio-Cortez wants to be known as a “radical.” She made that clear in her “60 Minutes” interview.

AOC: “You know, you look at our tax rates back in the ’60s and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, you know, let’s say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera. But once you get to, like, the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.

WATCH:

It is going to be a long two years covering Alexandria.

She’s young. She has ideas.

Unfortunately, she’s too young to understand that her ideas are ridiculous.

Alexandria claims the Pentagon lost $21 trillion.

There’s a huge problem with AOC’s math:

D’OH!

1,200 Migrants Form New Caravan, & They Are Walking Directly to the Southern Border

That could be a problem…

The Mueller report was recently released and completely vindicated Donald Trump. Then, fierce Trump critic Michael Avenatti was arrested for fraud. These are things the American public should be talking about, as they are both major stories. And yet, there’s always something else going on. Now, it appears another migrant caravan is making its way to the country’s southern border – and they are 1,200 strong. How can Dems say with a straight face that this doesn’t call for a national emergency? Here are the details… From Reuters: A caravan of some 1,200 migrants from Central America and Cuba began moving towards the U.S. border from southern Mexico this weekend, migration authorities said on Sunday. The National Migration Institute said the migrants were already inside Mexico when they opted to form a caravan in the southern city of Tapachula on the border with Guatemala. More from The Daily Wire: The development is likely to do little to ease tensions over the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, or between the United States and Mexico. The latter pledged several months ago to do all it could to intercept migrant caravans before they made it too far through the country, offering migrants headed to the United States temporary asylum within Mexico and accelerated access to work permits and the Mexican immigration system. The strategies haven’t worked, though, and migrant caravans continue to push through Mexico to the United States, worsening a growing problem on the border, and crowding Mexican border towns with illegal immigrants in line to declare asylum at Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico border checkpoints. Vice President Mike Pence said the original migrant caravans were funded by leftist groups. The MSM didn’t blink. Residents of Tijuana, Mexico collectively uttered the three words Democrats hate hearing: Trump was right. They are referring to…

Pentagon Delivers Major Blow to Dems, Tells Congress It Authorized $1 Billion for Wall Construction

And here we gooooo…

President Trump’s biggest promise to the American people was that he’d deliver a wall on the southern border. He has delivered and he will continue to deliver. Trump knows that if he doesn’t come through, he may just be the first one-term president since George H.W. Bush. Now, the Pentagon has notified Congress that it has authorized $1 billion for new wall construction. The Pentagon notified Congress Monday night that it has authorized the transfer of $1 billion to begin new wall construction along the US-Mexico border, drawing immediate objections from Democratic lawmakers. A Pentagon budget reprogramming notification sent to Capitol Hill on Monday and obtained by CNN indicates that up to $1 billion will go toward building 57 miles of fencing, improving roads and other measures on the southern border. The Department of Defense authorized the Army Corp of Engineers to begin planning and construction for the project Monday night. The department will direct the funds toward 18-foot-high fencing along the Yuma and El Paso sections of the border, according to a letter acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan sent to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. One month ago, President Trump tweeted a video of the wall being built in New Mexico. As you’d imagine, the left was apoplectic.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has become known for her ramblings on Instagram Live. Given that she’s a Millennial, it’s a smart way for her to connect with fans.
