Bernie Busted – Can’t Tell the Truth if His Life Depends on It

The obvious can sometimes be too obvious but remember, if it looks like a chicken, acts like a duck and talks like a duck, it’s a duck. That adage has been modified a million times yet the message is clear and even more so when the message is clearly motivated…and ridiculous. Of all the issues the President has handled well and even with all of his administration’s impressive work with everything from jobs and the economy to foreign affairs, the issue of America’s healthcare system still lingers. It is still the one area in the nation where many are affected and few answers are being found. It is also about the only area of the President’s first term that the Democrats can find to attack.

The President has undoubtedly struggled to find solutions for the growing issue of medical expenses and care but so has every President before him. Just to put this issue into a proper scope, here are a few statistics regarding the nation’s healthcare problem.

One study reported that a whopping “…66.5 percent of all bankruptcies were tied to medical issues…,” and “an estimated 530,000 families turn to bankruptcy each year because of medical issues… .” It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon to realize, that’s a problem. Of course, this isn’t news to anyone including the Democrats.

Now, if a candidate wanted to win votes and the hearts of voters wouldn’t it make sense to address this issue? So, that is exactly what leading Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders did. One story quoted the Independent U.S. senator from Vermont who said: “That is unacceptable. I am sick and tired of seeing over 500,000 Americans declare bankruptcy each year because they cannot pay off the outrageous cost of a medical emergency or a hospital stay.”

Mr. Sanders’ plan to gain voters step one, empathize with them and let them know that you understand (even if you don’t). Check. Step number two, tell them that you will fix it and make it right. He did that as the story said he “proposed a plan” that would “cancel $81 billion in existing past-due medical debt for Americans” but as the story continued, “offered no details on how it would be financed.” Step two – check.

The details you see, as Mr. Sanders understands, aren’t important and especially not during election season. People have a tendency to hear what they want and they listen for what they want to hear.  A story from the New York Times citing a survey reported that “about 70 percent of respondents said they had no confidence in their elected officials to bring prices down… .”

Think about that for a minute. What if Bernie could win over that 70 percent? What if he is saying precisely the things they want to hear and are listening for? Because he is. Sometimes it is entirely too obvious. The healthcare issue will probably require a bipartisan effort and more to get it fixed. As long as the Democrats choose to look at the healthcare issue as a campaign beacon instead of a problem, change isn’t likely to happen anytime soon.

Don’t be surprised if you hear something tomorrow about another Democratic presidential candidate promising to eliminate taxes altogether or increase the minimum wage to $20 an hour. Some people will say anything and promise anything to get elected. Some have. Unfortunately, these are real problems and worse yet, people and families are being given hope when those doing the giving have no idea of how it is going to get done. Fortunately, for most of us, we also know that the American public isn’t so easily duped and shame on the politicians who prey on those who are.

So just remember as the campaign season heats up, if it looks like a politician, acts like a politician and sounds like a politician… well you know the story. Despite his haggard grandpa-next-door everyone loves appearance don’t be fooled, this is still a politician. And this is just more garbage being spewed by another candidate and more clucking from the Democratic party.

  2. Does anyone her on this site want a president whom is a total liar? I just raised my hand.! My answer: Nope!

  3. And a lot (not all) of those people chose to buy an IPhone and latest styles instead of paying for insurance.

  4. Dear Bernie,
    There is not now or has their ever beenis a “Free Lunch”.
    If you keep talking that way someone will use a “red flag” law to have you committed.
    At our age making a case for Alzheimers Dementia is an easy sell.

  5. Old Bernie figures it is okay for him to lie just as long as he shouts it at the top of his lungs. Have you ever seen a photo of him when he wasn’t screaming about something.? I swear it looks to me like his tonsils are about to fall out every time he speaks (yells). I had a business law professor in college who was a practicing attorney. He told the class when in court if he had the law on his side, he argued the law. If the issue was a bit fuzzy but he had right on his side, he argued the right. If he had neither on his side, he pounded the podium. I guess screaming and yelling is old Bernie’s way of pounding the podium.

  6. He did NOT lie. With medicare for all we would NOT have medical bankruptcies. You do not even get your own story straight. If it looks like a chicken, despite how it acts or sounds, it might well BE a chicken.

  7. Bernie’s a liar,but so is Trump and anyone else who expects to get elected.Honest people aren’t going to be elected by dishonest voters.

  8. Bernie Sanders will never be elected to become president he is to angry and full of hate and everything he says when vetted turns out to be a lie. Sanders has never held a regular job and lived with his mother until he was 45 years old living off his mothers earnings. He is a demon-rat (democrat) communist, socialist, anti-American, with real anger issues that needs to be professionally treated. Bernie is doing his best to buy votes saying so much will be free, that is bull shit he does not give a rats ass if what he proposes comes true just vote for me.

  9. Burnie, Nothing but a F-en Social COMMUNIST Mother F-er!

  10. Bernie Brainless Sanders will not do one thing for the Americans—all he wants is power and put us into a Communist state where we have no rights. His family is Communist and his thinking i s lower than a snake!! He is a dumbo with his looks, hair flying everywhere, look slike he slept under a bridge, and cannot eve comeclose to being anAmerican. Send hi to Russia—that is where he belongs.
    Americans we know are NOT going to pay taxes, and come hell orhigh water if they start looking for us for money, you will have at least 150 millio to go after and itcant be done. Bakruptcy under SANDers. Try Bernie you old dog.

  11. I’m scared after Trump’s second term. All the work he’s doing/ and done for this country will be undone. The country will go throu changes and not for the better. We as Americans better enjoy the next few years. The America we will become in the next term. The fear of becoming another 3rd world country. Maybe be are country’s destination.
