Socialists, Democrats, Communists and liberals rely on people being kept in the dark about their policies. Things are so much easier for them that way. When the media never asks inconvenient questions, any chance of the truth getting out is generally non-existent. But when the bottom publically falls out of one of their fake “benefits” it becomes impossible for these people to keep us in the dark.
When the Berlin Wall was coming down the Communists were still telling people to go back to work at their useless factories where they were making useless commodities no one wanted; but the people learned the truth anyway. Even as American troops were entering the building he was broadcasting from to control Baghdad, Saddam’s mouthpiece Baghdad Bob, was telling Iraqis Saddam’s troops were slaughtering Americans in the streets and the Republican Guard was winning the battle for Baghdad; but the people knew the truth.
And now the truth has given Vermont’s self-described Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders his Baghdad Bob moment. Last December when Democrat Peter Shumlin, the senator’s home state Governor, was forced to admit that single payer healthcare doesn’t work, Sanders too was proved a liar.
Sanders had a dream about becoming America’s first Socialist President. He thinks he can win by riding a popular wave of support for Obamacare that exists only in faculty lounges and his own mind. Now confronted with Shumlin’s admission, Sanders has taken to saying, “It’s not that it hasn’t worked out, it hasn’t been implemented. So I think that in Vermont, many of us, including the governor, are planning about how we go forward.”
Saying it “… hasn’t been implemented” is political double talk for “….it hasn’t been tried.” But it has been tried and it has failed. When Shumlin signed the single payer experiment into law in 2011 it was amid high hopes that Vermont would be the model for a national system. By 2013 Sanders was saying, “If Vermont can pass a strong single-payer system and show it works well, it will not only be enormously important to this state, it will be a model [for the nation].”
With Obamacare falling apart, all people like Sanders can do is lie about it and hope we don’t become aware of the truth. This is a terrible way to be governed.
