For years now, Bernie Sanders and others on the far-left have clamored for a “Medicare for All” system in which the federal government funds free universal health care for every American.
But since President Trump’s sweeping victory in 2016, seemingly the entire Democrat party has also adopted the policy as a way to stave off their inevitable extinction.
The only problem is no one, and I mean no one, with half a brain knows how a government that’s more than $20 TRILLION in debt could possibly afford such a plan without completely bankrupting the country and causing a global economic meltdown.
And now, we can add the Chief Executive Office of the Democrat National Committee among those that have no clue how such a proposal could become reality.
When asked about the possibility of a “Medicare for All” system at Yahoo! Finance’s “All Markets Summit: America’s Financial Future” summit, DNC CEO Seema Nanda said, ““I don’t think we’re there yet.”
“So, you know, your answer is I don’t know how we’re going to get there, but these are all big conversations that we need to be engaged in,” Nanda continued.
You can watch the full exchange here:
According to a report from Breitbart News, paying for a “Medicare for All” system remains a seemingly impossible feat for Democrats, despite their continued promises and outright lies about the feasibility of the system:
“Multiple studies have estimated that the plan would cost between $32 and $38 trillion. Mercatus Center scholar Charles Blahous released a study in August that found that Medicare for All will cost $38 trillion over the next ten years, contrary to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) claim that the plan would save America money.”
I do have to hand it to Seema Nanda, though.
She may be one of the only Democrats in America that’s even willing to admit they’ve just been lying to Americans for years.
