“To anyone saying that Bernie supporters are “freeloaders” and “socialist commies”, I have to say that I’d much rather see my tax money go to my family, friends, and neighbors than a CEO that is trying to buy his 4th Ferrari, or for the military to spend $100 million dollars on an aircraft that they will never use, or for corporations to make record profits while their employees live on food stamps.
On average, people pay $300/mo on insurance and you still have to pay a copay, with universal healthcare, your taxes would increase by an average of $35/mo with no copay. Insurance companies would like you to think that the reason your premium is so high is because of government regulations, so then why are they making record profits?
I don’t understand why so many people are totally okay with the wealthy getting welfare, but are up in arms when an average citizen is just trying to put food on the table and a roof over their heads. Why are the poor called freeloaders, but the wealthy are praised?
If hard work was the only thing that one needed to do in order to become rich, Paris Hilton would be homeless and Nikola Tesla would not have died impoverished and in debt. Farmers, teachers, construction workers, plumbers, coal miners, police officers, firefighters, nurses, etc., etc., would all live in mansions.
If ingenuity would be the only thing one would need in order to have a successful product, we would have Tucker cars still on the road, but unchecked corporate greed has created monopolies that will snuff out anyone that they see as a threat.
Bernie’s policies will still make people work hard, he is just going to try his hardest to get rid of corporate greed, make it easier for Mom and Pop stores to succeed, and to rebuild the middle class. His policies will not fault those that succeed, but will allow for more people to succeed, not just those that were born into money.
If creating a country that would allow the ease of the “American Dream” to come true is un-American, then so be it, but I refuse to fight for the 1%.”
