A video from 1987 shows Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) has not always considered single-payer health care a slam dunk for progressive reformers. [

Weird that they never go to the single payer systems that we already have to announce their single payer plans. (Those being then VA, Indian Health Service, etc.)
...Give everybody a Medicaid cardwe would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation...
GIVE is the operative term. Bankrupt us, yes. But, liberals will have susceptible voters believing that they will have “free” healthcare not realizing that the “freeness” will result in national value added taxes, huge nafionl sales taxes, and higher income taxes to “pay” for it.
More “free” stuff to buy votes.
I used to know old time socialists like Bernie in college years ago. I’ll bet they, like Bernie, got into politics full time, or still don’t have jobs.
Bernie looks like a conservative with single payer. He has to go to the UN, the EU, the Vatican, Russia and China and in luxe them and all other countries. Everyone, Bernie, everyone.
