Why isn't Sanders paying more?
Obviously it would cut in to his 3 home mortgages.

Bernie should join forces with that candidate who wants to pay every adult $2,500 a month in "basic income".
We get the $2,500. Bernie takes it and uses it to pay for free college and free healthcare for all.
How does that sound?
Oh, that’s an easy fix. Bernie will just make everybody doctors.

There are not enough doctors and medical staff to support "free healthcare" even if it were possible. It's like if the government promised everyone a brand new mid level car. What happens when the cars run out which, they will run out.
I don't know why this is never discussed but it's a real problem. It would take a decade or more to increase the staffing. Yes, on paper everyone would have health care. Good job. Now what about actually getting the care in a timely manner. Well, that would take us right back to where we are now which would be tens of millions with no healthcare. Get in line. Die waiting in that line then oh well. That is life.
Bernie's real problem though is refusing to live in his made up world. He talks about the horrors the 1% have created but he he is a part of the global 1% and environmental polluter. He is the problem. Saying one thing but doing the exact opposite. If he "cares" so much why not donate his socialists book sales to help "poor folk". Nope. That is his money. Get lost.

This is brilliant economics. Bernie has an IQ of 220 and you can count on him to do the right thing and raise taxes as much as it takes prove once and for all that socialism is destined to do the Lord's good work.
