Skip to comments.Bernie Sanders Should Be Grateful We Don’t Have ‘Medicare for All’

Within hours of suffering chest pains Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders had stents inserted to relieve the blockage in an artery. Hes lucky. Because if Sanders lived under Medicare for All, things likely would not have gone as well.
Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing Medicare for All and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures infant mortality and longevity are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons.
Infant mortality rates depend on how countries measure them, and longevity has more to do with things like obesity, crime, and drug abuse than health care.
What Sanders and company never do is look at how countries handle actual health care delivery. Thats because when you do that, socialized medicine starts to look more like Hell than Nirvana.

Bernie Sanders didn’t fly to Cuba and stand in line to receive the best medical care in the world?
Article makes some good points, but the reality is that the ruling class wouldn’t be affected by socialized medicine. Just we peons.
If Bernie had Medicare he’d be dead.
That’s a shame he didn’t...
Youre wrong, because as a ruling member of the ruling commie-bstrd, elite class, he would have had 500 people around him at all times, SUVs, helicopters, and submarines, and gotten the fastest best medical care on Earth, while others died in the streets of paper cuts and razor bumps.
This is really the correct title, just as ObaMaoCare is the real name for the so called Affordable Care Act.
Bernie Sanders admitted in 1987 : Single-Payer health care would bankrupt America.
They should have sent him to Canada... Get in line Bernie like everybody else.
BTW - When prominent Canadian politicians have cardiac problems... They go to the United States for treatment.
Suffering chest pains ,Oh take an antacid and don’t eat greasy food is what he would have received
It’d be funny as Hell if because of those stents, and the resultant delivery of more oxygen to his brain, Sanders came out as a conservative, withdrew from the Dem primaries and declared that he was running against Trump because “Trump isn’t a real conservative.” Oh, how the snowflakes would melt. :>)
“If Bernie had Medicare hed be dead.”
When I had a heart attack and cardiac arrest last year here’s what happened:
An ambulance picked me up within 10 minutes
They needed help so they met another ambulance and picked up another medic. They did CPR on me for 6 minutes and shocked me twice
When I got to the hospital a team was standing by to put me on life support
Another team was standing by to perform a heart cath and insert a stent
I was out of ICU in two and half days, out of the hospital in a week and a half, and back at work a week after release from the hospital
Our system, at least for me, was outstanding. The whole ordeal cost me about $3,000.00 out of pocket. I’m of the opinion that we don’t need to make major changes to our health system.
Universal health care wouldve given Bernie an appointment to see a doctor...in about a year.
Really Bernie and the other congress and senate critters don’t worry about medicare, that’s for the little insignificant drones, they have cadillac care.
This is true!
He should be grateful?
An entire editorial board? They dont realize that leftist dictators never intend to live by the same rules dictated by the rulers
Journalists are so ignorant. Congress doesnt have Obamacare. Never did. Never intended to. Thats for the masses.
Per Ezekiel Emmanuel, Rahm’s brother and 0bama’s med advisor, Bernie would not have qualified for the heart surgery he had under Ezekiel’s 0bamacare.
Similar story: When I dropped dead on the basketball court (A fib or V fib, I forget which) last November first aid was there in four or five minutes, got me restarted and to the hospital in (probably) less than ten minutes more. I woke up from the induced coma several days later.
Total out-of-pocket cost, after a pacemaker/defib implant and nine days hospitalization around five grand. Plus a voluntary contribution to the First Aid Squad. And thanks to my b'ball buddies for the first few minutes of CPR.
Professional politicians are psychopaths, they have no self-awareness whatsoever.
And besides that they just run to rake in the money from idiots anyway. Beach House Bernie just wants to maintain his lifestyle by fleecing morons.
