While I was suffering through last night's Democrat debate, I heard Bernie Sanders mention he had a new plan out for a single payer healthcare system. I always find it funny when politicians talk about their "plan" since it usually amounts to an eighth-grade version of a Christmas list. But I decided to head over and check it out for myself.
If you remember from our previous discussions, America is standing under a debt avalanche that I don't see how we get away from. We've got 19 trillion in debt and another 200 trillion in checks we've written that haven't hit the bank yet. (Unfunded liabilities for those of you who know the lingo)
All three of our hopeful leaders last night spent their time trying to do out the others in all the new programs they plan to start. Everything from free health care to equal pay.
What is downright insulting is they each claim they can offer these new programs without any new debt. They even claim it will save you money. I don't know about you, but the Obamacare promises of cheaper, and better care still have me screaming. Does any of you believe the U.S. government is going to create a cheaper more efficient system for insuring Americans? If you do, there's nothing I can do to save you. You're lost. For everyone else, listen to today's episode and prepare yourself for some very rough times ahead regardless of who get's elected.
