The shelf life of a Bernie Sanders argument

Bernie Sanders says he wants the U.S. to “guarantee healthcare to all people as a right” like “every other major country.”

That argument had more covetousness-inducing power when those other major countries known as the developed world were not struggling to actually pay for that “free” care. Now they are. The grass is not so green on the other side anymore.

Sanders use to harp on campaign finance and the evil of people supposedly buying elections. And then someone won raising and spending a lot less money than the opponent, and so now that argument doesn't hold water either.

In our elections and policymaking, we need fewer political promises and more principled basics.
