(TheConservativeNews.org) – Economically, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) sits almost as far to the left as anyone else in Washington, DC. He supports a broad restructuring of public benefits, and would like to see a system where most healthcare and education costs are government-funded. He thinks most Americans share his view.
On Sunday, November 15, Sanders gave an interview with CNN in which he talked about his aims for the future. He discussed policies and his hope that Joe Biden would appoint him as Labor Secretary.
What caught perhaps the most attention, however, was his apocryphal claim that a “majority of American people” support his policy objectives.
Bernie Sanders has a reputation as one of the most genuine politicians we have. No matter how honestly held his beliefs are, however, they remain dangerous. Saddling the government with the responsibility of paying for education and healthcare will increase taxes and stifle our economy. While reform may be needed in some areas, Sanders’ ideas veer too close to Socialism for the liking of most Americans.
