Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has never had a problem spending law-abiding citizens’ money – even, apparently, to fund programs for people who aren’t citizens at all, much less law-abiding ones.
During a speech at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials(NALEO) conference in Miami Friday, the Democratic socialist again touted his pitch for universal, taxpayer-funded “Medicare For All” program – a plan he says will include health care for the 11 million-plus illegal aliens currently living unlawfully in the United States.
“We will organize the American people around the concept that all people have the right to health care, and at the end of the day, we’re going to win that struggle,” Sanders declared.
“Senator, would you include the 11 million undocumented immigrants in that –“ the moderator began.
“Absolutely,” Sanders declared, before the woman could even finish her question. “When we talk about health care being a human right, last time I heard, undocumented people are human beings, as well.”
Sanders’ “Medicare For All” proposal carries an estimated cost of about $32 trillion.
