Bernie Sanders on Single-Payer Transition: 'There Will Be Pain'
Communist garden gnome Bernie Sanders is still hard at work trying to turn America into a turd-world socialist sh*thole. He was lecturing Chris Cuomo on his "Medicare-for-all" plan, when he made an admission. The transition won't be as smooth as most leftists claim.
In his own words, "there will be pain."
If you go to the basement of a hospital, you got hundreds of people, dozens of people who are doing nothing else but billing. Right? They are sending out telling you that you owe them money.
Will those people lose their jobs when we have health care for all guaranteed to a single-payer system? The answer is, yes.
On the other hand, we have a lack of doctors in this country, a lack of nurses, a lack of nurse practitioners, a lack of dentists. We are an aging population. We need more people to be working with our older people.
Yeah, not many people can transition smoothly from billing to brain surgery. Something the Bern might know if he'd ever held down a real job.
There will be a transition just as the same way to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel. We create more jobs but there will be pain and you got to deal with that pain.
Let's see here. Bernie wants to destroy jobs created by the market in order to bring his "utopian" socialist pipe dream to life. A pipe dream which, when tried, has been about as successful as Kevin Spacey trying to score a gig as a school bus driver.
Bernie is right about one thing. There will be pain. Though, the people in the billing department will feel the least of it. Most of the pain will go to chubsters in need of surgery. Bicyclists with internal bleeding. Toddlers who have the audacity to get sick.
This is socialism in a nutshell. The government decides who works and who walks. Who lives and who gets the cold shoulder. The unnecessary leg amputation. The one way trip to the great beyond. Scary stuff.
