WOW! Talk about reckless…
During a recent interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders was asked how he plans to finance all of these radical changes which he is promising if he wins to presidency and Sanders apparently had no answer.
According to PJ Media, Anderson Cooper asked, “Do you know how all– how much though? I mean, do you have a price tag for– for all of this?“
Sanders replied, “We do. I mean, you know, and– and– the price tag is– it will be substantially less than letting the current system go. I think it’s about $30 trillion.”
Cooper then asked, “That’s just for Medicare for All, you’re talking about?”
Bernie Sanders responded, “That’s just Medicare for All, yes.”
Cooper then asked the burning question, “Do you have– a price tag for all of these things?“
Sanders pathetically replied, “No, I don’t. We try to– no, you mentioned making public colleges and universities tuition free and cancelling all student debt, that’s correct. That’s what I want to do. We pay for that through a modest tax on Wall Street speculation.”
Anderson Cooper then asked, “But you say you don’t know what the total price is, but you know how it’s gonna be paid for. How do you know it’s gonna be paid for if you don’t know how much the price is?“
Sanders replied, “Well, I can’t– you know, I can’t rattle off to you ever nickel and every dime. But we have accounted for– you– you talked about Medicare for All. We have options out there that will pay for it.” You can read the full details of this story here.
