    You heard right. The new Bernie Sanders health care plan will save families nearly $5800 per year!

    I know I'm looking forward to it. In fact, I'm still exited about the $2500 a year Obama said I would save with Obamacare. Will it finally come this year do you reckon?

    You fool!
    He meant $5800 for everyone.
    Quick!
    What is $5800 split evenly among 326,967,014 people?
    Wait.
    My bad.
    Subtract the number of members from Congress and all other Washington luminaries from that figure.
    Those sorry saps will just have to lose out on the sweet, sweet savings us fat cats richly deserve...

    I can hardly wait!

    Finally, hope and change we can believe in! 😵

    No worries, if it does not work out the GOP says that they will repeal it.

    I reckon this means I can still keep my own doctor as well.

    At least I can sleep in peace about all this.

    It must be nice to sit at your keyboard and cherry pick only the info you want people to hear without giving them the whole story. Yes, Sanders plan comes at a hefty price tag, no doubt, but that is more than offset by the savings in doctors visits, check up's, and catastrophic coverage, and could be further reduced by eliminating funding for that stupid wall (that Mexico was supposed to pay for) not to mention the billions of tax dollars we shell out to the Fortune 500 in corporate welfare every year.

    Every industrialized country provides healthcare for it's citizens. Why are you so against Americans having health care?

    Other industrialized countries, all of them with some form of guaranteed universal or near-universal coverage, provide health care at a lower cost. Do you think they have some magic trick for it that cannot be applied in the U.S.?

    Just using back-of-the-envelope figures, I have it worked out to about $0.00001 for every man, woman and child in these here United States.
    Thanks, Sir Bernie!
    I wonder how they're going to disburse funds?
    Manual checks personally signed by every member of Congress or maybe they save a buck and just push it into all of our wildly prosperous Social Security accounts.

    I'm so excited!

    From the article:

    "But, he argues, people would save money since they would no longer have to pay monthly premiums or deductibles. A family of four earning $50,000 would save more than $5,800 each year. "

    True or not, it seems impossible that someone would think this means "$5800 split evenly among 326,967,014 people" but the ability to lie to oneself in order to lie to others is underestimated.

    What on earth are you talking about?

    I'm pleased as punch to have Obamacare.

    It's so wonderful, it sometimes befuddles me why they want to replace it before the ink dries on the legislation.

    All I can say is, these guys really must know what they are doing.

    Rest assured, we all in good hands. 😵
