(Liberty Bell) – Currently, the people of Italy are suffering greatly due to the failures of their socialized health care system as the coronavirus ravages its citizens.
This could not be a better (albeit more tragic) display of exactly why the kind of single-payer system that Bernie Sanders envisions would be disastrous for our country.
President Donald Trump has been working closely with private health care companies and businesses to ensure the virus is contained within our borders and that Americans who are infected have the resources they need to combat the virus.
It’s a beautiful display of public-private partnership and it’s exactly why we elected Trump in 2016 and will do so again in 2020.
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders thinks that the best approach to this virus is for Trump to “shut up.”
Give me a break.
During the Democrat debates on Sunday night between Sanders and his primary rival, Joe Biden, Sanders declared that the first thing he would do to cope with the outbreak of the deadly virus is to “shut this president up right now.”
When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper what he would do “tonight” to “save American lives.”
Sanders replied that Trump was “blabbering” and not listening to scientists.
These came mere hours after Trump appeared at a White House presser flanked by the nation’s chief scientists and public health officials.
Sanders said: “Firstly, whether or not I’m president, we have to shut this president up right now. Because he’s undermining the doctors and the scientists who are trying to help the American people. It is unacceptable for him to be blabbering unfactual information, which is confusing the general public.”
Meanwhile, Biden pointed viewers (who were all at home, the debate was held with no audience out of concerns for the coronavirus) to the plan that he has posted on his website, which borrows heavily from the measures President Trump is already taking.
The pair also debated whether or not “Medicare for All” would have helped to stop the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Although Biden mentioned that the nation should take the opportunity to unite, neither candidate offered any support for our commander-in-chief who, despite all the hate and propaganda, is still working hard to keep all Americans alive, these elderly bozos included.
Thank God Trump is president right now. It’s now become a life-and-death matter!
