UNCLE BERNIE SEZ …

Uncle Bernie says heath care is a right. As you know, without health care, there is a possibility you might get sick. And if you get sick there is a even chance you may die. But when it comes to food there are no possibilities or chances. WITHOUT FOOD YOU WILL DIE. Why, then, is food not a right?

Uncle Bernie also says that health care should be “single payer.” You go to the doctor and endorse a bill for the services you receive. The doctor presents that bill to the gummamint and the gummamint pays him/her.

It would seem that the right to food, too, should be “single payer.” You go to the supermarket and fill up your cart with food. You go to the checkout counter and the clerk scans all your food items and you swipe your “right to food” card. The supermarket sends your food list to the gummamint and the gummamint reimburses the supermarket for your food.

This is going to be great. I see those gigantic shrimp in the seafood section and the thick fancy steaks for sale. Of course, I’ve never been able to afford that stuff in the past. I’m really looking forward to this new gummamint program.
