Bernie Sanders Should Be Grateful
We Don’t Have ‘Medicare for All’

Original Article

Within hours of suffering chest pains Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders had stents inserted to relieve the blockage in an artery. He’s lucky. Because if Sanders lived under “Medicare for All,” things likely would not have gone as well. Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing “Medicare for All” and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures – infant mortality and longevity – are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons. Infant mortality rates depend on how countries measure them, and longevity has more to do with things like

Oh, Bernie's not worried. "Medicare for All" wouldn't apply to him anyway. In his power grubbing fantasy, he owns everything and everybody. He's a god. Somewhere and at sometime in his life he concluded that he deserves it all.

Indeed, #1. In the old Soviet Union, there were doctors and operating rooms ready to go for Politburo members at a moment's notice. And then time off to recuperate at your dacha.

Too bad they didn't make him wait 6 months or so like they do in Canada? I guess that's the way it is there. or so I've read?

Isn't the medical care in Cuba exceptional? Sanders should go there. At least there will be warm (humid) sunny weather for recuperation.

#4 - I’ve been to Cuba, and saw a real clinic away from the propaganda. Their only medicine was a Chinese herb that could be used to treat just about anything. I would find it highly entertaining to see anyone on the left try to use the real Cuban medical system.

Crazy Bernie issued a statement praising the skills of the doctors who handled his heart problem. I doubt if he is capable of seeing the irony in that. If his emergency had taken place while on his honeymoon in Moscow (that's where he and his financial genius wife went!) he probably would have been Dead Bernie. Was Lady Lucifer celebrating yesterday? Has she contacted Omar the Tent Maker for a new wardrobe??

fta: "A 1995 study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that no patients needing an urgent coronary angiography test – used to reveal artery blockages – received one within 24 hours in Canada or the U.K., whereas 65% did in the U.S. Nearly two-thirds of Canadians and 94% of Brits had to wait more than three days. The same study found that while 80% of urgent coronary bypass operations occurred within 24 hours in the U.S., only 24% did in Canada and 10% in the U.K. The situation has not improved in either country since then.

One of the things I find interesting in all of this is that no one in the enemedia or in Bernie’s campaign is admitting the obvious - he didn’t suffer chest pains or chest discomfort - he had a full blown heart attack! Just like PIAPS’ collapse on 9/11/16 was due to “dehydration” instead of some sort of seizure. Lies, lies and more lies. Now, every time Bernie holds a rally or gives a speech, everyone will be waiting to see if he drops dead at the podium. Neither of those two is healthy enough to run for president much less be president.

I recall the book/movie the Hunt for Red October where the rogue Russian Submarine Captain, played by Sean Connery decided to desert his Russian authorities and head the Red October towards the coast of North Carolina to freedom. The reason was his wife died in because the Russian hospital didn't have the appropriate medication and supplies and to keep her alive from a minor condition.

2nd post apologies, but #10 is probably correct. VP Dick Cheney, at the very beginning of his taking office, was taken to the hospital in D.C., had a stent inserted, and went back to work that day. Crazy Bernie may very well have a much more serious condition.

Bernie may be covered by Medicare, but it is not the same Medicare you or I would receive. He was operated upon within hours of experiencing his medical problem. The average wait time for an operation is weeks if not longer.

We had very good friends who moved to the UK in the 80's. His comment about the NHS was that it was great if you were bleeding from the neck but other than that get in line. And that was then you can imagine what it is now. Reading the horror stories in the UK press should make people realize what a disaster it is but our press chooses to ignore reality and go with the Potemkin village hospitals that the communists have produced. Why haven't any of these stars that keep telling us how great these socialist systems are retire to one of them. Sean Penn? Why aren't you living in Venezuela? How about the rest of you nitwits? Cuban beaches are calling. I notice that they all talk a good game but the fact is even though they can afford to move they ain't goin' nowhere, nohow. Liars and thieves the whole lot of them Bernie in particular stealing from the gullible followers to fund his three houses and his upscaled lifestyle. The man has not had a real job in his entire life, no wonder he espouses communism.

Here's National Review's rundown: The chairs of the House Committees released a document late Thursday night containing text messages that “reflect serious concerns raised by a State Department official about the detrimental effects of withholding crucial military assistance from Ukraine, and the importance of setting up a meeting between President Trump and the Ukrainian President without further delay.” The texts come after a closed-door briefing with former

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A group of San Francisco neighbors said they had to do something to make their street safe. Their answer? Some giant rocks. Fed up with what they see as the city’s failure to combat homelessness and rampant drug use, the neighbors had boulders delivered to their sidewalk to block people from pitching tents on their street. That started a fight that shows the frustration with an unprecedented homelessness crisis in California. Cities are struggling to address the lack of affordable housing and a growing number of homeless encampments that are popping up on city streets, sometimes in neighborhoods.

The content of the Ukraine phone call, as unseemly as it may be for President Donald Trump, will not be the basis of impeachment, the way Bill Clinton’s “perjurious, false and misleading testimony to the grand jury” was. Which is why House Democrats are utilizing it as pretext to fish the whole expanse of the vast waters of presidential diplomatic communications with foreign leaders. A few breaths after grousing that Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani “seems to think I’m judge and jury here,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, the California Democrat, almost comically delivered the verdict, telling ABC News on Sunday that “what we have seen already is damning” and falsely

How did this get to be standard practice? The whistle-blower scandal that has prompted the fourth presidential impeachment process in American history has put a spectacle from earlier this decade back on display: the jaw-smacking feast of scavengers who circled around Ukraine as Viktor Yanukovych, a Moscow-linked kleptocrat, was driven from power. Ukraine’s crisis was the latest to energize a club whose culture has come to be treated as normal—a culture in which top-tier lawyers, former U.S. public officials, and policy experts (and their progeny) cash in by trading on their connections and their access to insider policy information—usually by providing services to kleptocrats like Yanukovych.

Until the transcript of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky emerged on Wednesday, Democrats were in a mad fury with accusations that Trump had bribed a foreign government to investigate the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The claim, based on a whistleblower’s second-hand account, which none of them had seen, alleged that Trump withheld aid to Ukraine on the condition that it open an investigation on Biden. Circumstantially at least, there seemed to be some crumbs to back this up. Aside from the mysterious whistleblower claim, the administration had

On Tuesday, Trump delivered a far from throwaway speech articulating the vision of the voters who elected him, speaking of nationalism, globalism, and socialism, along with an added rundown of problem nations to condemn and props for others. RealClearPolitics has a video and transcript. For starters, it was a zero apologies for America speech, which was a breath of fresh air, given the previous administration.He drove a fine definition of nationalism in the American sense, not other countries, as a positive thing that benefits not just the U.S., but all nations.

"This has nothing to do with politics or partisanship.” That was how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it shortly before announcing the opening of an official impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump. Who is she trying to kid? Despite the breathless commentary about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president and a whistleblower report based on second-hand accounts of uncertain credibility, we know little about what transpired, much less whether it rises to the level of an impeachable offense. Democrats could have gone through the normal procedures to get the information from the White House rather than jump immediately to talk of impeachment.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reaffirmed Democrats’ new stance that they’ll consider any resistance from the administration as “further evidence of obstruction.” “Of course that was an article of impeachment against President Nixon,” the California Democrat said. For his part, Mr. Trump said Wednesday he was willing to go along with Democrats, but it’s not clear how far that cooperation will extend.

There is no shortage of weak-spined GOP officeholders, and it has happened many times before. The Dems had no reason to doubt that it would happen again. But it’s not happening.
