Bernie Sanders calls for wiping out $81 billion in medical debt

Sen. Bernie Sanders released a plan on Saturday to eliminate $81 billion in Americans’ existing medical debt. Sanders also said as president he would push to reform bankruptcy laws to provide relief for those with medical debt, and create a public credit registry to replace for-profit credit reporting agencies. The campaign said this would be paid for with a tax on corporations.

And Bernie illustrates his complete lack of economic education or understanding. He has zero chance to be elected.

The Dems are falling over each other to give away tax payers money. Every time a Dem opens their mouth you just know it is to announce yet another giveaway.

This is not a healthy solution. Of course any destabilization in any markets caused by this would be blamed further on capitalism and further justification for more government intervention. Just remember, Bernie Sanders is no Ronald Reagan. He does not have the mass popular support to make his plans real. Watch him fail.
