Our schools are slowly destroying this country. The latest example of this is a poll that finds that a huge number of Republicans support a socialist healthcare program.
A new Morning Consult poll shows that 31% of Republicans support the socialist “Medicare for All” policy.
Worse, almost half of Americans overall support the disastrous Bernie Sanders healthcare plan.
According to Breitbart News:
The poll, which surveyed 6,600 adults and has a margin of error of 1%, showed broad majorities support some form of federal health insurance that would be available to all Americans, though support was higher for policies that would be optional.
A little good news was in the poll, though. Support has fallen as more people find out just how disastrous the policy is.
Morning Consult noted that support for “Medicare for All” had fallen since the 2018 midterm elections, thanks in part to Republican attacks on the policy, as well as revelation about its likely cost ($32 trillion over 10 years, which would increase government spending by 68%, based on the FY 2020 budget of $4.8 trillion).
The poll adds:
The poll found that despite the abyss between partisans on health reform, most people want the same thing: a system in which everyone has health insurance, and the right to choose where they get it from, without going bankrupt. And with many months ahead to litigate the merits of Medicare for All, the data suggests the proposal’s proponents are on more fertile ground than its detractors to bring the public to their side.
Americans are not happy with the idea that private healthcare would be eliminated under such a plan.
But, the fact that this many Americans like the idea at all is troubling.
You can thank our fetid schools for working to destroy America and instill in our kids a love of socialism and a hate for American values.
This poll shows that our un-American schools are winning.
