Trump Supporter Roughed Up At Bernie Sanders Rally

During a Bernie Sanders rally at Virginia Wesleyan University, an overzealous campus security guard got caught on video tackling a Trump supporter who was waving a “Trump 2020” flag.

Socialist Schemes Never Work

During the Tuesday evening debate in South Carolina, Senator Bernie Sanders lauded the supposed benefits to a socialized healthcare system. Bernie, for decades now, has been seriously misinformed. His most recent detractor is a surprising one: the Coronavirus. We’ll let Tom Rogan with the Washington Examiner explain: Bernie Sanders advanced his anti-pharmaceutical industry narrative at the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday. He's only showing us that we're lucky he's not president as the COVID-19 epidemic grows. "The advantage of a Medicare for All healthcare program, because it's not driven by profits for the drug companies and the ...

Bernie Sanders Can’t Promise A $15 Minimum Wage Increase Without Cutting Hours and Jobs

Bernie Sanders announced he’s cutting his staffers’ hours so they can “effectively” be paid the $15-minimum wage he’s been promising for the rest of the country if elected president. It just comes to show how not only hypocritical he is but also his championed policy doesn’t even work for his own staff. Fox News has the story: The Washington Post first reported last Thursday that Sanders' field staffers were upset that Sanders championed a $15 minimum wage on the campaign trail, and made headlines for railing against major corporations who pay "starvation wages" -- even as his own employees made "poverty wages." In response, Sanders ...

“Free” Always Comes With Strings Attached

If Social Security Becomes Insolvent, What Does That Mean for Medicare-for-All?

According to a new report, Social Security will be insolvent and unable to pay the full value of promised benefits to recipients by 2035 and it will exceed its income by 2020.  About 67 million people are currently recipients; however, if nothing changes, the program will have to impose cuts of 20 percent to all beneficiaries. For many who rely solely on Social Security, that’s significant. Even Medicare will be unable to cover the full cost of benefits for those who qualify. Meanwhile, 2020 contenders like Bernie Sanders are proposing Medicare-for-All to be the savior of healthcare.  What Bernie Sanders doesn’t understand is his pipe dream ...
