Bernie Sanders has finally admitted that every working American will have to pay for his unfeasible plans. Why are we not surprised?
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has made headlines several times over the past week as more and more people question how the country could ever afford his plan. On Friday, Bill Maher pushed and prodded a flummoxed Sanders over the untenable costs of his platform. Now, liberal media darling, George Stephanopoulos has finally gotten Sanders to say the truth: he plans on raising everyone’s taxes.
The Vermont senator appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos where he pressed on what his plan would actually cost Americans. After some back and forth Bernie admits he will be raising everyone’s taxes– not just the rich, as many of his supporters believe.“I think if you’re looking about guaranteeing paid family and medical leave, which virtually every other major country has… that will require a small increase in the payroll tax,” Sanders said.
“That’s going to hit everybody,” the host remarked.
“That would– yeah, that would,” Bernie acknowledges.
Imagine that. A Democrat candidate comes clean and admits all the “free stuff” they want to give Americans isn’t actually free. Way to play catch-up, Bernie.
