Read the above carefully. “Half of our people,” “seniors are unable to hear…” “guaranteed zero?”
First, wealth accumulated has nothing to do with any of the issues.
Half of our people live paycheck to paycheck is nonsense. The majority of people who actually do this are doing so not because of their income level as he implies, but at least equally because of their spending. Otherwise known as living above ones means. You can live P to P at any income level.
Seniors are unable to hear, how many seniors? Certainly not just “seniors.” Guess what, of those seniors who have hearing aids, 20% don’t wear them and 30% don’t wear them all the time.
Unable to see. The most common causes of vision loss among the elderly are age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataract and diabetic retinopathy. The above are not corrected by glasses, but treatment is covered by Medicare.
New moms, well this is a tough one. Is it the federal governments job to guarantee that moms spend time with their children? I don’t think so, but then again I don’t understand the entire concept of putting work and career ahead of children one decides to have.
Sen Sanders is the master of generalization, and he apparently has no concept of individual responsibility and accountability but that’s not the real problem.
That problem is the millions of Americans who accept his rantings without question or any thought of looking at the facts.
