CNN is not known of telling the truth when it comes to Donald Trump or anything questioning Democrats, especially the socialist ones like Bernie Sanders.
In fact, I believe that CNN leads MSNBC, CBS, the New York Times and the Washington Post in the reporting of fake news.
That’s why I was surprised to see that CNN actually posted an article about how Bernie Sanders plans on funding his massive free Medicare for all program.
They even quoted someone who said that Sanders’ plan would cost all taxpayers far more than Sanders in claiming.

CNN Politics (please bear with me) – Can taxing the rich pay for Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All plan? – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is not hiding the fact that everyone’s taxes would go up under his “Medicare for All” plan, though the rich would be hit with several extra levies.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the audience at a Fox News town hall in Pennsylvania that his plan would ultimately save most Americans money because it would eliminate premiums, deductibles and co-pays, which cost a typical family of four $28,000 a year.
“But does that mean you’re not going to pay something? Of course it does. You’re going to pay more in taxes,” said Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said at the town hall on Monday. “But at the end of the day, the overwhelming majority of people are going to end up paying less for health care because they’re not paying premiums, co-payments and deductibles.”
Health care is dominating the debate of the 2020 election, with Democrats divided over whether to aim high with Medicare for All or take a more moderate approach. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump and Republicans say the universal health care concept is too expensive and would undermine the current Medicare program for senior citizens…
CNN was honest enough to show that Sanders plan comes with a price of around $32 trillion over 10 years or about $3.2 trillion a years.
They report that Sanders want to tax the wealthy 70% plus raise estate taxes on any inheritance over $1 billion up to 77%, which would basically result in the government takeover of those businesses left in an estate.
However, they were honest enough to report that the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimates that Sanders’ plan would only raise about $11 trillion in taxes.
Yes, I was surprised to see that CNN did report the problems with Sanders’ plan.
