Bernie Sanders’ CBS Interview Ends After Question Of Payment Method Raised

Font Size:

Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) Wednesday interview with CBS This Morning concluded without one question being asked about how he intends to pay for his socialist programs.

Sanders was hitting all of his usual talking points, both promoting and defending the far-left-wing agenda.

“The idea of socialism vs. capitalism. Does that conversation need to be more in the present, more in the forefront?” CBS host John Dickerson asked.

“I think media makes a bigger deal of it than it should look. Should every American have healthcare as a right at a time when we spend twice as much per-capita as any other country, have the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, and 30 million people have no health insurance?” Sanders asked. “Of course we need to move to Medicare-For-All,” Sanders continued.

The Senator continued his monologue, speaking about the importance of free education, reducing income inequality and higher standards of living.

“Of course the response from many is: We like the ideas. How do we pay for them?” Bianna Golodryga rhetorically asked before closing the interview, much to Bernie’s amusement.

“This conversation, of course, will continue, but we’ve run out of time,” Golodryga concluded.
