Democrats running for president in 2020 – along with independent Bernie Sanders – say they support the so-called Medicare For All scheme that estimates show would cost this nation more than $32 trillion.
By comparison, the entire U.S. national budget last year was $4.4 trillion. The Bank for International Settlements says the total amount of money in the world is about $5 trillion. The CIA says the total amount is $80 trillion if you add “broad money,” which is easily accessible money in checking accounts, savings accounts, money-market accounts and the like.
There simply is not enough money available in the world to allow the Left’s harebrained scheme to work. And it knows it. What it will do, if left unchecked to have its way, is ensure everybody gets medical care – just not good medical care, but the effort is not about medical care.
Their Medicare for All scam illustrates the thing this bunch shows Americans every day: With socialists and socialism the truth means so little; control means everything.
