Sen. McConnell Compares Bernie Sanders to the Other Democrats Running for President
Bernie Sanders seems to be the candidate who is in the lead and honestly, it looks like it’s his nomination to lose.
It seems insane that an admitted Socialist is the top candidate for the Democrats compared to all the rest of the candidates, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that there is really not much difference between Sanders and the rest of the candidates.
Sen. McConnell explained to Bret Baier of Fox News why he didn’t see much of a difference between them.
“As you look at the Democratic race right now, a lot of angst on the Democratic side about Bernie Sanders versus a centrist or moderate role,” Baier said. “What would it do to the country, do you think, if it was a President Bernie Sanders, if he was elected over President Trump in November if he’s the nominee?”
“You’ve got to worry about a nominee who is so attracted to the old Soviet Union years ago that he and his wife went to a honeymoon to Moscow during the Cold War,” McConnell responded. “He’s the real deal. What bothers me more is all the rest of them sound very similar. They just don’t describe themselves as socialists. Some of them call themselves moderates.”
“If the definition of a moderate in the Democratic presidential primary these days is, they’re not for ‘Medicare For All’ but the public option, the public option there will be only be one insurance company pretty soon, so they’re all heading the same direction, socialized medicine,” McConnell continued. “I think they are all taking far-left positions and even though Bernie Sanders gets some credit for truth in labeling, they are I think all heading in the same direction.”
I have to agree with Sen. McConnell. While the rest of the candidates don’t explicitly claim to be socialist, their policies are clearly socialist in principle.
