    Really? Bernie: ‘A Lot Of People In The Country Would Be Delighted To Pay More In Taxes’

    By RYAN SAAVEDRA - The Daily Wire




    Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said on Wednesday night during a CNN interview that "a lot of people" would love to pay more in taxes if it meant that they got government-run health care.

    "But as you know, the taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are in individual and personal tax are much higher than they are in the United States," CNN's Anderson Cooper said.

    "Yeah, but I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right," Sanders responded. "I live 50 miles away from the Canadian border. You go to the doctor any time you want. You don't take out your wallet. You have heart surgery, you have a heart transplant and you come out of the hospital and it costs you nothing."

    "Your kids in many countries around the world can go to the public colleges and universities tuition-free, wages in many cases are higher," Sanders continued. "So there is a tradeoff, but at the end of the day, I think, that most people will believe they will be better off when their kids have educational opportunities without out of pocket expenses and when they have health care as a human right and they have affordable housing, when they have decent retirement security, I think most Americans will understand that is a good deal."

    You know what's funny about these uber leftist/socialist rich people saying that Americans want to pay more in taxes like this? There's absolutely nothing stopping them from cutting an additional check to the US Treasury at tax time if they think they should be paying more. Funny though how none of them do it.
