Any day now, folks.

Conservative political predictions on the economy are seldom right.

In his analysis of the financial impact of Sanders’ economic plan he failed to include the cost saving impact of eliminating the trillions spent each year on private health insurance premiums. His failure to include this information feeds the misinformation mill that seeks to maintain the most hideous healthcare funding system in the modern world.

This is not reporting….this is a hit piece. Corporate media hit piece…thank you very little.

This essay illustrates either the deficiencies of Indiviglio’s BA in economics or his disingenuous logic.

Currently, the US population spends $3.8 trillion ANNUALLY on health care via private insurance plans. Anyone with a calculator can compare the delta and savings represented by a ‘medicare-style’ plan, based on his figures.

Actually I do wonder at what point the world will say stop…. just stop with the debt.
