Fox blunder on medicare for all popularity . . .

. . . . . (snip)

In one memorable moment, conservative host Bret Baier tried to feel out the attendees’ thoughts on “Medicare for All” — the colloquial term for folding all health insurance into a universal, comprehensive single-payer system that makes health care free at the point of use. And he was greeted by enthusiastic support for the measure.

“I want to ask the audience a question,” said Baier. “If you could raise your hand here, show of hands of how many people get their insurance from their work, private insurance, right now, how many get it from private insurance.”

Several people raised their hands, including Sanders himself (as a senator, he is legally obligated to purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act, although the federal government subsidizes his plan.)

“Okay,” said Baier. “Now of those, how many are willing to transition to what the senator says, a government-run system?”

Most of the hands stayed in the air, and cheers went up.

1. So did Bernie legitimize Fox?

 

Doesn’t sound like it to me.

Shows me Bernie has guts going into the lion’s den.
Our nominee is going to have to be tough as nails.

4. Ah yah, they had cue cards......and Bernie was just saying what he's always been saying.....

was proud of him. He stood right in their faces.....answered all questions from the talking heads and audience.....he did great. Made the crowd yell and applaud, Bernie more then did a great job, he might have turned some fence sitters. Just saying.....I think all the Democrats should go on faux to see how they hold up. Bernie did a great job, would like to see them all go into enemy territory and see how they hold up. JMHO.
