  1. Alot of women sold out is why.So therefore they can't handle the cold hard truth & yes those who sold out to become men undacova are E! This was the 2012 NWO agenda & it started in California & their trying to spread this evil agenda all across America but then again 🗼 in all 51 states if you include Puerto Rico & its spreading all across the globe ok. I'm just stating facts!👆🥋✊

  2. NO way, after we ALL SAW The FOOTAGE of how JOE BIDEN TREATED ANITA HILL, is it even plausible Biden is leading in any poll.

  3. Vote Sanders if you want to get rid of Medicare for seniors and support the love affair of his Shiksa Ocommie Puerto Rican beauty queen and you want to stand in breadlines and you approve of Ocommie giving her man Beernie blow jobs —– not.

  4. lol @ the idea of a Jake Tapper fact check, I guess anyone looks like a progressive hero next to a Trump op-ed.  Trump is like the ugly friend of establishment media.

  5. I don't know what I am. I love trump. But also think health care is a privilege. You work for what you get. Sit on your ass looking for handout. Don't deserve shit.

  6. When someone has the "Right" to something, that means that they can't be infringed upon within that issue.

    Every Right in the Bill Of Rights…. is about non-infringement. They're not about GIVING you things.

    A Right exists with an individual. It does not concern outside parties.

    Example…you have the Right to apply for a home loan (equal opportunity), but you do NOT have a RIGHT to get a home loan. That is approved based on credit/ ability to pay back.

    You have the right to not be assaulted unlawfully. You do not have the right to assault someone else unlawfully.

    You have the right to freedom of speech. You do not have the right to shut down someone else's freedom of speech.

    These rights exist with or without anyone else involved, because they're Rights of non-infringement.

    If all of the doctors in the world died tomorrow… what would you say about your right to healthcare then?

    You do not have the right to force someone else to give you service.

    The definition of a right is a fundamental pillar of our existence within the United States.

    You can't just say you have a right to something without paying for it.

    If you can't afford the service that you would like, then get a better job, educate yourself more, and adopt the next stream of income.

    You cannot force other people to give you something because of your choices in life that hampered your ability to pay for them.

    I want a $1,000,000 Lamborghini. I do not have a right to that one million-dollar Lamborghini.

    Lamborghini builds cars.

    Doctors fix bodies.

    Both are services that nobody is entitled to.

  7. Fuck Bernie and his Obamacare 2 doesn't make any sense except to Bernie and his shikSA. lIKE Obamacare its a plan to completely bankrupt America for the NEW WORLD ORDER.

  8. What is the average health care premium you Americans pay ? i mean how bad can it be ?

    I calculated my own, i live in Belgium btw we have a dual healthcare system, one government mandated ( which covers between 50 to 75% of all medical expenses like hospital, doctor visit, dentist,…) and we have private insurance to cover the rest. i have DKV which i get on a personal premium and from my employer.
    Anyways i pay like 200 EUR for the government one and 300 EUR for the private one to a combined premium of 500 EUR.
    this combination basicly covers all medical expenses, except like if you want a 1 person room or something like that, then you need to pay extra out of your own pocket.

    So how much do you guys pay for your health care premiums to cover all of the above ?

  9. Jake, that is certainly not what the debate is about. No democrats called for violence. Quit taking words out of context.

  11. In a life filled with uncertainty, there are a few things you can always count on.

    First, that death comes for everyone. Second, that the current president of the United States will call an adult-film star he paid to keep quiet about an alleged affair “horseface” on social media.

    And third, that after passing a $1.5 trillion tax cut they insisted would pay for itself and then some, Republicans would blame social services like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security for exploding deficits and debt and insist that such “entitlements,” sadly, have got to go.

    Vanity fair

  12. I'm for getting rid of more than "one party rule." I'm for getting rid of "two party rule." Time for some new choices.

  13. Don’t agree with all of Bernie’s economics: but his views on healthcare are realistic and much more functional in practice than what Republicans want.

  14. Bernie is an illusionist. Why does he not just pick up a rabbit out of the hat? Does he know anything about economy? He lies as much as the Soviet leaders did for decades. Ok, the rich should pay more but thats not enough. Bernie would be even worse than Trump so hope you wont run, ok.

  15. I'm disabled and now have Medicare before I used to have Private health insurance when I work for somebody else and then I paid Cobra when I work for myself prior to becoming disabled and I can say that Medicare is a hell of a lot better than the private insurance companies which only let you go to certain doctors certain pharmacies which are usually not very close to your house. Medicare is so much better than private insurance in every area. I was first put on Medicare at 32 or 33 when I first fell victim of Crohn's Disease I am now 47. And still have very favorable views on Medicare and believe it should be available for everyone and it should also include the 20% that it does not include now and also include Dentistry. If your teeth are bad your health is bad one goes with the other why are the two disconnected today is beyond me. Health insurance should include teeth.

  16. Also private insurance cost you money you pay deductibles at the doctors at the pharmacies Medicare there is no deductible if they pick up that 20% that they usually don't cover I live in Massachusetts and have MassHealth which is a Medicaid Program because Social Security Disability gives me 300% below poverty to live off of. And mass help fix up the extra 20% that Medicare does not cover at the moment. if it was included all of it I wouldn't have to have the extra insurance through the state. It's all money savings out of your paycheck and no deductibles more money back. It makes 100% sense. To be against it is like, you like banging your head on a wall of concrete to get through it. Not the smartest thing to do. Neither is paying all kinds of extra bills in Private health insurance world.

  17. ….  a human right…?   YES, as long as you pay for it….BERNIE,…I'll take it.   But if you steal the money from the working goyims   to make this project of yours work,…NO.

  18. Bernie is a 1% er he is a multi millionaire that made his fortune off of the people's taxes he's a phony and he gets the best healthcare that we pay for I didn't see him joining the people and getting on Obamacare he's a fake socialism sucks Bernie go to Venezuela your utopia

  19. Remember Americans we don't have RIGHTS we have PRIVILEGES. Heck I don't even OWN my own house because even though its paid in full I still have to pay property taxes every year.

  20. No. Heatlhcare is a service, not a right nor a privilege. You pay for it. You do not have a right to another person's work. Fundamentally this man is evil.

  21. Problem: health care is too expensive for many Americans
    Solution: use government regulation to eliminate competition so doctors can charge more, and force other Americans to pay the bill without filtering out those taking advantage of the system.

    But hey, it is free after all

  22. Washington just relased a report saying that USA living standard is 15% better than Nordic countries!
    That is bullshit and full of lies no wonder a lot of Americans are stupid!

  23. If the private sector is so good why not privatise the police force and let everyone pay for "police insurance " …cant pay welll stiff shit …your out of luck when it comes to being protected by the police .

  24. People still have misconstrued perceptions of Bernie Sanders. Joe Biden is only leading because people think Bernie is gonna raise taxes to 50% for the poor and the middle class. That’s not how it’s gonna work. The rich will be made to pay their share, and everyone else will have to contribute accordingly. Nobody is gonna miss out with Bernie. His interests belong with everyone.

  25. In practice the poor's access to healthcare will be limited to unqualified AA diversity/inclusity hire doctors that have had standards lowered for them.

  26. BULLSHIT. you have NO right to someone else's labor, and you have NO right to someone else's tax dollars stollen under threat of impreisonment.

  27. Unfortunately, some people do not have/see a problem with Corporations making the laws, rules and ruling America. They don't seem to have a problem with Neo-feudalism…..and that is sad.
    Also, even if Bernie became Pres, he would NOT be able to do much. He would be constantly blocked/prevented from accomplishing anything……another sad fact.

  28. He talks like ex-Venezuela president to the poor and ignorant peasants, it's free for all but didn't know anything about the budget balance sheet. Bernie didn't say he is not paying the bill but all of us will with more tax. Oh, only if corporations still want to do business with a communist or you will have no job.

  29. If Bernie runs in 2020, (AND WE ALL GET UP TO VOTE!) it will surpass the landslides of Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

  30. In Australia this whole discussion is bizarre as a reasonable level of good health care at minimal cost is assumed to be an inalienable birthright. The American system is an painful reminder of the power of the propaganda of vested interest groups in the outcome when aided and abetted by disinterested government policies.

  31. The fact that this has dislikes proves how many idiots exist in the United States. A guy who wants to do everything for the middle class and help regular people and people still suck the wangs of elite rich corporations. Sad. Sanders is the only way forward.

  32. Healthcare is absolutely not a right. Why? Because it's a service given to you by somebody else (in this case a doctor or nurse). Do not assert that healthcare is a right unless you are also willing to assert that you have the right to force others to serve you. Even if you are you have to understand that that contradicts the prohibition against involuntary servitude in the 13th amendment. I have no more right to a doctor's services than I do to that of a housekeeper.

  33. A single payer Medicare for all system would be extremely expensive, it has been estimated to cost 32.6 trillion dollars, and it would not just tax the rich, but everyone would get taxes through the roof, and all a Medicare for all single payer system does is let the government decide what happens, what treatment you get or don't get, or what prescriptions you get or don't get, you essentially don't gat to decide anything, it would have a major backlash toward the people who aren't in the 1%, exactly what Bernie Sanders doesn't want….. we want this loonbag to be President?

  34. A republic is a basic form of government which is ruled by laws. Since the US was able to set up such a strong republic after the revolutionary war and keep it secure the U.S. can now setup a democracy which helps to stand for common good resources people need. Such as healthcare, education, and access to opportunity. That is why you setup a democracy after you have a secure republic. But Republicans think its just about themselves.

  35. if you go through CNN videos covering bernie sander, most if not all, are about slandering bernie.
    its almost as if someone is paying them millions of dollars to do this…🤔🤔🤔

  36. #Bernie2020 is a reality that we need to make it a reality. #Bernie2020 is the only candidate out there who clearly has a long record of fighting for pro-working people and is anti-corruption, he literally destroying the establishment. The establishment has failed the American people, and Bernie is taking them down. You guys can go to organizingforbernie.com and chipping in however you can.

    #BoycottCNN, #CNNIsFakeNews. CNN has a very pro-establishment bias, That’s why I NO longer watch FNN, because they are corporate propaganda outlet. I watch only local and independent news sources like The Young Turks, and Secular Talk hosted by Kyle Kulinski, and Ring of Fire. CNN is the worst news outlet in the world.

    We need to elect candidates endorsed by Justice Democrats and Our Revolution, because they are the toughest of all candidates, and they will NEVER give up on the bold progressive vision they have for our country. Fellows , you can go to justicedemocrats.com and ourrevolution.org and check it out how you can help.

  37. Hello,
    I just read in the Sac Bee that the Democratic 2020 presidential runners are talking about Health Care for all. I like the idea, I think it is right. I like Sanders idea that all medical care should be covered except cosmetic, however I would make very clear rules about what is cosmetic, and have a way for a person to challenge the rule based on circumstance. I think medical services should be a basic human right, and indeed many medical professionals offer service for free or deeply discounted when they feel the need to.

    The nation would benefit greatly from a free and simple medical system that is inclusive of alternative medicine, sports medicine, veterinary medicine et all, because all these things are done by the population and are deeply important to most people.

    I do not care about the national debt. I do not care because I know how the monetary system works and I know that human life, and the life of all animals and plants for that matter, is more important than any social construct. Money is useless if we are all dead, and in real terms we are at a natural ecological and environmental and perhaps social edge right now. We need to make the right moves to hold everything together or it all will continue to unravel at an exponential speed. We need to respect life at all cost, and remake our social experience.

    Many people do not have my understanding, I know this, but my understanding is based on solid arguments, logic, and life experience, and I offer my opinion in good faith.

    Some people may feel that private markets can fix all social issues, but this is not true. Still, people may want to have private insurance and balk at government supported health care because they don't trust the government or don't want to be "just a number or face in the crowd" and while that is understandable we still need to offer and make available comprehensive government supported health care. Doctors and medical offices need to be payed quickly, if the system is based on money, and most all medical offices would have to participate and take the federal insurance. Medical offices could offer service for free or not accept dollars but if they do accept dollars, and until the federal government accepts or uses something other than dollars, the medical offices mostly would have to take the federal insurance.

    People should be able to go to any medical office and get help, simple.

    Personally, I have family who work in the medical industry in different ways and one complaint I heard was that the ACA complicated small practice and so it is a financial burden. Many social things most often go back to money in some way, it is a horrible thing, money. So, we should have a simple way for medical businesses to submit claims and get payed. If this is done right than everyone will be very happy with it. The individual cost of medical service will go down, while the level of care will go up, and most importantly the general health of the nation will go way up!

    Also, there will be an increasing number of elderly persons in the US and they will not have money to pay for health care. We need more health care workers, and I'm even thinking about entering the health workforce to address this issue. It is important and it is needed right now.

    Going back to cost for a moment. People do argue what the cost of a national system would be, but the cost is spent directly into society. Government is not a for-profit business. The money given should directly benefit the population. The national debt, again not my concern, but when people think about it they seem to think in personal terms, and that is the wrong way to think of this. If someone personally thinks that $23 trillion is a lot of money than they don't understand the system, the dollar amount is arbitrary, inflation could make $1 trillion the equivalent of $1 dollar, money is fundamentally not the issue. The issue is power and control that money provides, and this is the real issue. The idea that the monetary system represents a count of work done is no longer valid, that reality, if it ever existed, is long gone. Our collective and personal health should not be dictated by social games, we should respect ourselves and each other, and all life on earth, more than social games.

    Thank you.

  38. Old, impractical, populist.
    I use Medicare, unlike Bernie. My Medicare Part B cost me $1608 last year. Paid for one office visit and one flu shot. Do the math. I was molested. Each hospital admission has a copay of $1364. Bernie fans are clueless.
    Instead, a PROGRESSIVE employer/employee payroll tax for for ALL hospital stays, a kind of self insurance, no copay, no deductible. Primary Care and Drugs out of pocket, BUT WITH A CALENDAR CAP. Just booting private insurance saves $50 billion (net profit $13B) And with forensic audits we can prevent $500 dollar q-tip bills. Hospital single payer for the left, for profit hospitals for the right. Win-Win. Kick insurance in the shins.

  39. But how are you going to pay for it is the key question. It is estimated that it will cost 2.5 to 3.0 trillion dollars. And this is the most moderate number out there. Even if you tax every billionaire 90% income/capital gain tax, you will be short by 2 trillion dollars. Like how are you planning on doing this?

  40. Healthcare and life insurance

    Do you need a quote today ? Do you need life insurance for your family. God forbid if you don't come home the next day what would they do? Well you're in the right place come consult with a local senior representative today

  41. Health care is NOT a right! It is not a privilege. It is a COMMODITY! Health care is a service provided by people who have invested their time, energy and resources over years to study and understand the human body, its construction, diseases, and ailments and have worked out ways to repair and assist in the healing of such. They did this with the perfectly reasonable expectation of a return on that investment and are entitled to compensation for their expertise. This is a free country and the government does not now nor will it EVER have the right to compel health care providers into service. You bleeding hearts need to get it into your thick heads. You can not legislate morals or compassion. Bernie Sanders will never be president. And the United States will NEVER be a socialist country.

  42. There's a real problem with not having enough doctors and rural areas suffer the most.

    "Seventy-six percent of primary care residents received 50 or more job solicitations during their medical training while 55% received 100 or more, survey data shows."

    https://www.healthleadersmedia.com/strategy/doctors-demand-new-physicians-flooded-job-offers

  43. Compare the free market’s influence in decreasing costs with the federal government’s & health insurance's role in inflating them.

    “the inflation-adjusted price of LASIK eye surgery declined by 25 percent between 1999 and 2011, even as quality markedly improved. Notably, third-party payers (including the government) generally do not cover the procedure and so ophthalmologists have had to compete directly for consumer dollars. Similarly, though the price of healthcare grew at double the rate of inflation between 1992 and 2012, the price of cosmetic surgery — for which consumers pay almost exclusively out of pocket — grew at less than half the rate of inflation. These examples also highlight that when consumers are spending their own dollars and shopping accordingly, providers have greater incentives to improve quality and cut costs.”

  44. Historical data show Medicare/Medicaid and Health Insurance accelerating the inflation of medical care costs.

  45. Easy solution: Make universal health care voluntary. If you don't pay the dues, you don't get the benefits. That's fair right?

  46. Forget the picture! 😁 I'm currently 65+ and US citizen. I enjoy MEDICARE and as most retirees, I pay PLAN B as the current fee is deducted from my SS check ~$135.00 or so a month. Do you want to know my ANSWER to Bernie's stupid agenda of MEDICARE FOR ALL = NOBODY? I STOP PAYING PLAN B!!!! NO MORE DEDUCTIBLES FROM MY SS CHECK! What would that mean? It means that those who chose no to have a PLAN B will be forced (pressured) to pay for it in order to sustain the cost of that massive, government ran idiocy!

  47. Dearest Bernie . The English get free dental care. . Say no more. Free is not so great when the free stuff is crap. .

  48. Bernie will guarantee a tRUMP landslide. As will everyone. Left or Right. Such a bunch of complete and utter wANKERS. Such a joy to behold.

  49. My best friend died in an emergency room in eNGLAND while the fucking beaurocrats decided where he should go to get treatment. But at least it was fREE..

  50. Coming from a man who never created a product or service nobody never needed or wanted. Hey putz. Stay the hell away from my health care.

  51. Hi from Canada! Regarding socialized medicine…we pay a good chunk in taxes (42%) toward healthcare and we are barely handling it now. ie. long waits at Hospitals for emergency services, backlog of diagnostic services and delays of months to years for elective procedures.
    By 2030 we will be totally screwed! That's when the bulk of the baby boomer population gets really old and will continue to get really old until about 2050. This will put a HUGE burden on our healthcare system.

  52. I’m a brit we have free healthcare called the nhs. It’s something we cherish. However we also know its a privilege and not a human right.

  53. The parasite Joe Biden gets free the best health care and why care for the poor when he's a yes man to the rich elite. The Repubictards and Demoncatz are the same party ( two sides of the same coin ) ! The party for the rich elite !% and their mega-corporations. John F Kennedy was the last real President that we had and it got him assassinated ! Every other president has just been yes men and just figure heads ! You can see from Johnson to Trump and notice the plight of the poor . The destruction of the unions, under taxation of the rich and over taxation of the poor, free medical care for the Senate, House of Representatives, and President ! Yet they deny medical care for the poor so the rich insurance companies can keep their money! Health care for the poor to the Repubictards and Demoncatz is pure socialism and communism but free health care for them, full pay in retirement, trillion dollar buyouts for the mega-corporations, and tax breaks for the rich in trickle down myth! That is the great capitalism they spew about i.e. Social Corporatism ! Don't you think the polls are fake and dishonest ! Bernie Sanders has low poll ratings really ?, it is insulting to people that think for themselves, but OK for the Bread and Circuses crowd ! The Media lies and supports these fake polls and therefore are fake news !

  54. I work in healthcare and this idea of trying to keep the patient alive to The bitter end; Americans wood suffer a lot less if they thought of death is being a normal part of life. Just like babies being born it's natural and normal for people to die. What's not natural and normal is keeping them hooked up to tubes and machines to squeeze out a few more months or perhaps years I'm suffering.
    Also doing hip replacements on people with Alzheimer's disease and about $500,000 later you get someone back up on their feet that can't remember to use their Walker. Another solution is just pin the hip and the patient now lives in a wheelchair or hospital bed. It's natural and normal to decline with your skills as you get older. If you live long enough you're going to leave the planet the same way you came in, with diapers. The alternative is you die suddenly.

  55. Bernie Sanders is delusional healthcare is a unnecessary luxury Hispanics in the US have the highest life expectancy and they have the lowest health care coverage basically proving that the causation of a higher life expectancy is the infant mortality rate rather than healthcare coverage since Hispanics have around the same infant mortality rate as Whites in the US…also medical errors are a leading killer and many commonly used medicine has been shown to weaken the immune system maybe the life expectancy would be higher without health care with a low infant mortality rate…

  56. If I were an American I would rush to vote for public Healthcare that might ensure to have a safer society in which the "John Q guy" is not cornered and go acting in a dangerous way. Plus the average US family might spend less quids on Healthcare and have more savings to pay for say a college education my 2 dimes😎
    I've never voted left but what a great guy Bernie is😎

  57. Healthcare is a service… NOT a basic human right…Basic human rights…like free speech…and the pursuit of happiness.. don't cost anybody anything…by the way…liberals don't mind squashing free speech through censorship and political correctness.

  58. How can something be a right when it is something we will be either be taxed for or pay premiums for? The real rights are life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, etc.
    People have been giving something they think is so great and now they can’t live without. Why don’t the dems talk about our constitutional rights?
