Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, the Vermont Senator who describes himself as a socialist, has been caught in a desperate game of One-upmanship with his rival for the Democratic nomination, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Both candidates are scrambling for support of Latino voters, and Thursday Sanders came forward with a controversial plan. He announced his support for extending Obamacare to illegal immigrants and undocumented workers.
Sanders made the promise of support during his 45-minute sit down with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, attendees reported.
Both Sanders and Clinton are in a dead heat in primary states Iowa and New Hampshire, and are rabidly courting the votes of the Hispanic population to put them over the top during “Super Tuesday.”
The so-called Super Tuesday states and other contests in March could play a more prominent role in a competitive primary between Clinton and Sanders and, potentially, Vice President Joe Biden. Sanders has erased Clinton’s early advantage in Iowa and New Hampshire, setting the stage for a drawn-out primary.
Not to be outdone, Clinton’s campaign is planning a major push to organize Latino voters ahead of the Nevada caucuses and early primary contests in Texas, Florida and Colorado, all with an eye toward connecting with Hispanics in the 2016 election.
No word on how much Sanders newest promise will cost, but the sum total of his promised payouts by mid-September had already reached a staggering $18 trillion price tag.

Joyce Burks says
We should feed Bernie to the illegals!!
Phil Sargent says
Hey Bernie, I’ve got a better idea….Let’s take your promised 18 Trillion and pay of the country’s debt, then we can talk about all the illegals and undocumented… Maybe you can convince Hitlery to kick a couple hundred million from the Billery Foundation…Now we’re getting somewhere….You can thank me later.
Warren Wilson says

What would you expect a Socialist Communist to say. He is a Communist running as a Democrat. And he has the backing of millions of illiterate American’s.Sander’s will say he will give Everybody everything they want. He will build huge Prisons to house everyone who tries to buck the Communist system. Look how much freedom China give’s their citizens. Same with Cuba and Castro. North Korea .I do not understand how Millions of Americans are SUCKERS

Immediately after WWII there were millions of displaced persons wandering around due to damage of property etc. due to the war. I doubt that any govt over there took them under their wing and gave them stuff. We had a program to help European countries if they needed it. Eventually the displaced people settled down and disappeared from view. I have often wondered what happened to them? Probably charity because it was govt that caused the situation in the first place.
The govt can’t tax me into charity even though the dims act like they can. But they can and do tax millions into poverty. SS, Medicare, Obama care, Veteran health care are poster programs of just how ineffective, wasteful govt programs are but the tax and spend and print more money dimocrats want more! More money, more regulations, more control. but less freedom! More programs and never work on improving/fixing what they have already put in the toilet! Constitutional govt is not nearly as bad and PC, Politically Corrupt as Obama has made it. And the elected dims keep on, keep on voting for his agenda. It is hard to imagine anything positive to be in his legacy as prez! He is the first anti-American American president in our history. So keep up the protesting on the net. After all without no protests there is no progress! Some are listening in PC DC.

Bernie Sanders goal is to spend America into bankruptcy.
This latest initiative fits the Sanders’ socialist agenda. Socialists believe in taking other people’s resources and giving them to someone else. The sad part is our nation is filled with a growing number of unproductive people who think the workers “owe it to them.” Once you take away enough resources from the productive their productivity will fall to where no one will have anything. Socialism didn’t work in the Soviet Union and it will not work in America. Bernie Sanders should have enough knowledge of the Soviet Union to know better.
Sounds good, how do legal citizens get it for free too?

lets take the health care scam 1 step farther lets supply health care for all the terrorists that way it might take a few years but it will be one sure way of killing them off just like our government is doing to our law abiding tax paying legal people.
