Not only does Bernie Sanders want to give free handouts to just about every American, he also wants to give free stuff to illegal immigrants who shouldn’t even be in the country.
Presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), released his healthcare plan last night, which includes healthcare coverage for illegal aliens. According to Sen. Sanders’ senior policy campaign adviser, Warren Gunnels, the single-payer healthcare system, “would cover everyone, including aspiring Americans.”

Sen. Sanders’ “Medicare For All” is a universal healthcare plan that would expand Medicare and eliminate the private health insurance industry. Currently the Affordable Care Act excludes illegal aliens from accessing any of the healthcare exchanges or subsidies. Hillary Clinton said she would like to open up the exchanges to illegal aliens but they would not be eligible for any of the subsidies.
“I want to open up the opportunity for immigrants to be able to buy in to the exchanges under the Affordable Care Act,” Hillary said during the October 2015 Democratic debate. “I think to go beyond that … so that they would get the same subsidies, I think that is – it raises so many issues. It would be very difficult to administer, it needs to be part of a comprehensive immigration reform, when we finally do get to it,” she said.
Why not start offering coverage to every person living outside of the US? It’s only fair.
