Bernie Sanders has been smoking a little too much of that weed he wants to legalize.
On Wednesday, the Vermont Senator and Democratic Presidential hopeful told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that people would be “delighted” to pay more in taxes if they have government run health care.
Cooper pointed out that taxes in countries with government run healthcare are much higher than those in the US and Sanders responded, “Yeah, but I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right.”
“I live 50 miles away from the Canadian border. You go to the doctor any time you want. You don’t take out your wallet. You have heart surgery, you have a heart transplant and you come out of the hospital and it costs you nothing,” he continued.
He then went on to talk about free college and how health care is a human right.
