The flagstone campaign issue for socialist Bernie Sanders is his free Medicare for all.
This is the government takeover of an entire business sector, something that only a socialist government would do.
A number of Democrats have also jumped on board the free Medicare for all.
In a stunning poll, 31% of Republicans said they support free Medicare for all, failing to understand what lies below the surface of this socialist nightmare.

We often think of just Democrats embracing socialist ideologies, but apparently, a growing number of Republicans are also succumbing to the dark side of socialism.
Breitbart – Poll: 31% of Republicans Support ‘Medicare for All’ – A new Morning Consult poll shows that “Medicare for All” falls just short of majority support (47%) — but that 31% of Republicans support the policy, which is being championed by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and other 2020 Democratic candidates.
The poll, which surveyed 6,600 adults and has a margin of error of 1%, showed broad majorities support some form of federal health insurance that would be available to all Americans, though support was higher for policies that would be optional.
Morning Consult noted that support for “Medicare for All” had fallen since the 2018 midterm elections, thanks in part to Republican attacks on the policy, as well as revelation about its likely cost ($32 trillion over 10 years, which would increase government spending by 68%, based on the FY 2020 budget of $4.8 trillion)…
The so-called wonderful free Medicare for all is like the iceberg that sunk the Titanic.
The top of the iceberg above the waterline looks all nice and pretty, but below the surface, lies the deadly mass that ripped the hull open of the unsinkable ship.
Free Medicare for all will do the same to the American economy – rip it wide open with catastrophic results.
Sanders plans on paying for the free healthcare by taxing all of the people and corporations that employ millions of Americans.
He refuses to acknowledge that doing so will result in massive job losses which will quickly snowball into perhaps the worst recession since the Great Depression.
