Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders on VA Scandal: “People Die Every Day” (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | May 24, 2014 | Jim Hoft

On may 15, 2014 Senate Socialist Bernie Sanders went on CNN to defend the VA adminisration.

Sanders told Chris Cuomo:

“People die every day.”

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

The Examiner reported:

In a recent exchange with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, sparks flew as the CNN anchor held Sanders to task if the secret scheduling delays at the Phoenix medical facility led to negligent death. As Sanders attempted to get off that vein of discussion:

"We know that people die every day. We don’t know why they die. All right – anyhow, Chris, I don’t want to argue that point until the cows come home. Here’s what you’ve got: you’ve got a system that, by and large, I think, works reasonably well for veterans."

And he didn’t want to pass the 3 page VA accountability bill because nobody had a chance to read it.

They do indeed, Bernie. You should think about that really hard for a minute or two.

Death under socialism is just natural - they go together like liver and onions!

You can argue about details until the cows come home.

That sorry sack of communist dog crap built his career by making promises to veterans in VT.

Marx/Engels: Law of negation
This law was created to account for the tendency in nature to constantly increase the numerical quantity of all things. Marx and Engels decided that each entity tends to negate itself in order to reproduce itself in higher quantity. Engels often cited the case of the barley seed which, in its natural state, germinates and out of its own death or negation produces a plant. The plant in turn grows to maturity and is itself negated after bearing many barley seeds. Thus, all nature is constantly expanding through dying. The elements of opposition which produce conflict in each thing and give it motion also tend to negate the thing itself; but out of this dynamic process of dying the energy is released to expand and produce many more entities of the same kind.³

I’m so happy that this compassionate bastard has by force of law placed himself in charge of my health.

Go to Hell, Bernie, and get there just as fast as you can, oh an BTW, you are in charge of nothing.

Let’s have that same attitude when these old fossils in the Senate need medical care. “See ya in about two years, Senator.” That would be mercy killing….for the good of the nation.

The Sanders Agenda:

Protect the unions at all costs.

Everything else is not important.

Now that image will haunt me forever.

But even as that man pitched over in death, I recall Orwell’s words:

“The worst victim of the purges could still carry Rebellion locked up inside his skull as he awaited the executioner’s bullet.”

The victim in that photo is saying, “You can kill me, but there your power of evil ends.”

“People die every day.”

And some die before their time, and the objective of healthcare/hospitals is to extend, not shorten lifespans, and also not to grow government, ya friggin' socialist moron.

“People die every day” must be some new Obamacare slogan.

I got a similar message last month from my doctor when I had a uti infection and wanted antibiotics. “Women all over the world get that, and they don’t take medicine.” I had to push him for a referral to a specialist, which took two weeks to get.

I hadn’t noticed that I lived in a third world country, but I guess we all do now.

I am sure he would like it just fine.

The VA is just like socialist health care anywhere else. It is a two tiered system.

The elite get the best and everyone else get what is left over.

“i say we change bernie’s hcare to the va system and see how he likes “reasonably well”.”

Actually, everyone in congress who voted for Obamacare—and their staffers—should be moved into the VA system.
