The amount we spend on private health insurance in America is far more than any other country in the world spends on health care. Expanding Medicare to everyone as a replacement for private insurance would either be a boon for the federal government (win) or amount to massive savings to American individuals and families. If I could buy public insurance instead of private insurance I would in a heartbeat. This was the only example that the author cited of Bernie’s unrealistic idealism. I haven’t heard any logical deconstruction of a “Medicare-for-all” argument. I’m using my head as well as my heart in my support for Bernie. And, yes, I’m one of those idealistic millennials who doesn’t know how the real world works.

Analyze that.

I guess if I had no skills or education I might feel the same way you do.

You appear to be a victim.

“Trump’s immigration views ‘not Christian\': Pope
“Pope Francis said Donald Trump’s views on immigration are “not Christian” and the billionaire businessman rebuked the religious leader for questioning his faith, calling him “disgraceful.”
Real class act this blowhard your so fond of. Don’t even start talking about lies, Trump holds the record for lies and he’s not even in politics yet. But then republicans love being lied to, but you know that.

There’s your “adult in the room”- a child like mentality blindly following Billy the sex predator around, getting govt positions based on his failed presidency that gave us the mortgage as racist vote buying Democrat scam when he instructed the Fed to stop checking credit and caused the housing/banking collapse.

I’m with the POPE: I DO NOT WANT MEXICANIZATION.

Their media, radio, TV, internet, and email propaganda, is mainly about feeding the sheep spin, half truths, and flat out lies.
Sanders supporters are young and like to feel like their part of a movement larger than anything they’ve been involved in before, regardless if what Sanders is selling isn’t attainable. Nothing he is proposing will get by a republican controlled congress or even a split congress.
There are two adults in the room, Hillary Clinton and John Kasich. It doesn’t appear Kasich has a chance of winning the nomination. And hopefully Sanders supporters will educate themselves on the realities of politics and come to their senses before we end up with a stalemate in Washington for the next four years.
