Democratic 2020 hopeful speaks sense about his socialist policies in video from 1987 By: Jack Murphy  |@NeonNettle on 24th September 2019 @ 9.00pm © press When the 2020 hopeful was mayor of Burlington, Vermont, the notion on free medical care for all was a lot more realistic.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders last year unveiled legislation that he would use to build 2020 presidential run around — “Medicare for all.”The plan would cost the taxpayer an estimated $32 trillion over ten years, expanding Medicare to the point where it became a single-payer program.Sanders even recently called for all medical debts to be canceled.“We’re addressing it on both ends,”

Sanders said on Saturday, The NeBernie Sanders knew back in 1987, free medical care for all wasn’t going to work. Then made a dire future prediction.“But I think what we understand is that unless we change the funding system and the control mechanisms in this country to do that — for example, if we expanded Medicaid to everybody, everybody had a Medicaid card, we would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation,” he said.“Maybe you want to talk a little bit about that, and why, in Canada, under their national health system, you can have access for all people — and yet, per capita, it is less expensive than in the United States.”But none of the structural problems that Sanders talks about have changed.

If anything, care here has gotten more expensive.Bernie Sanders knew back in 1987, free medical care for all wasn’t going to work.

The question is, what has changed?Only he can answer that.[RELATED] Bernie Sanders Admits Middle-Class Taxpayers Will Fund His Socialist Health Care

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that President Trump had had a “meltdown” in the middle of a bipartisan meeting on the Syria issue, Trump took to the Twitter machine in an effort to try and prove it was Pelosi and not him who had the meltdown.

Here’s what he tweeted:

Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!

Pelosi’s staff countered by making the picture he tweeted the header image on her Twitter page:

Trump and Campaign to Sue CNN

The media have unquestionably been swooning over the photo ever since. As Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro notes, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Lester Holt were among the many who were in awe of the supposed symbolism of the image:

Anchor Lester Holt began by touting the image himself. “It was during a contentious White House meeting about the Syria conflict that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood up in front of President Trump. The photo instantly becoming a new and powerful symbol of their power struggle,” he said.

Mitchell, a well-documented fangirl of the Clintons, proclaimed the picture was “iconic” and boasted about how it was “released by the White House to diminish the Speaker, she immediately turned it into a badge of courage and her cover photo.”

CNN’s Dana Bash was another who was couldn’t help but gush over the photo, and how Pelosi and her staff “owned” the moment where she “[stood up] … at a table of all men” against Trump:

“Can we do just one more beat on that photo?” Bash asked as the image was onscreen. “Until now, what her staff owned, and what has made her kind of iconic among the Democratic base and even beyond that, is that picture walking out of the White House and putting her sunglasses on. I mean, this makes that look like, you know, not even at all symbolic.”

“I mean, look at that photo of one woman standing up and, you know, giving it to the president of the United States at a table of all men there. I mean, of course she’s going to own that.”

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, had a much more different take, noting that when she was photographed pointing a finger at President Obama in 2012, she was treated much differently by the media:

Jan Brewer@GovBrewer

The news media hails @SpeakerPelosi as a hero for pointing her finger at @POTUS @realDonaldTrump but when I stood up to @BarackObama I was vilified as rude and racist. Such Hypocrites!

She’s right. Many media outlets either took a questioning or hostile tone over the image, or showed complete indifference – unlike how the Pelosi picture has been treated.

NBC’s Brian Williams wondered “Who have you ever seen talking to the President like this?”

NPR headline: Arizona Gov. Brewer Says She ‘Was Not Hostile’ In Meeting With Obama

“Finger-wagging Arizona governor says Obama was the disrespectful one”, wrote the Mercury News.

MSNBC had a poll up on their website that asked the question “Should Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer apologize for pointing her finger in President Obama’s face?”

The Root’s headline on their version of the story was: Arizona Gov Points Finger at Obama in Nasty Face-Off.

The media weren’t the only ones who frowned over Brewer’s actions:

Brewer took flak for her finger-pointing from both the media and the public, who accused her of disrespecting the presidency. More than 12,000 letters flooded her office in the ensuing days, most of which condemned her, calling her “trashy” and “tasteless.” Likening the act to belching at the president, a writer for the Washington Post scolded her, “If a thing is frowned upon in general, it’s even worse to do it to the president in particular.”

But I was told the media “don’t root for a side” or anything:

Chris Cillizza@CillizzaCNN

Let me say for the billionth time: Reporters don’t root for a side. Period. …6546:43 PM – Oct 16, 2016Twitter Ads info and privacy8,492 people are talking about this
