According to a study by Dr. Charles Blahous, senior research strategist at the Mercatus Center senior and former trustee for Social Security and Medicare, the ‘Medicare for All program proposed by Bernie Sanders would cost $32.6 trillion over the course of ten years. The cost is so high that even doubling all federal individual and corporate income tax collections would fall short of fully funding the plan. [The ignorant clamor for it, anyway, thinking that, somehow, they will escape paying ‘their fair share’. They also think they actually will receive good medical care. Ignorance contains it’s own punishment.] -GEG
A “Medicare for all” proposal would cost the federal government more than $32 trillion over the course of ten years. That’s according to a new study by Charles Blahous, Mercatus Center senior research strategist and former public trustee for Social Security and Medicare.
Dr. Blahous analyzed the “Medicare for All Act” (M4A), legislation introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) last September, in an effort to determine how much such a proposal would cost the federal government.
Here are the numbers:
M4A total cost over its first ten years: $32.6 trillion
Federal spending on healthcare by 2031: 12.7 percent of all economic activity in the United States
Other studies aimed at estimating the cost of providing Medicare-like coverage to all Americans had similar findings.
A 2016 Center for Health and Economy (CHE) study of the same proposal estimated more than $27 trillion more in federal budget deficits
This weekend, it was reported that about 100 cases of monkeypox were detected across European countries, Canada and Australia. All of this is convenient timing just as Biden is poised to hand over US sovereignty to the UN World Health Organization.
Axios tried to concoct a motive to blame conservatives for the threats to storm the Supreme Court, murder justices and their clerks, and attack places of worship. But this makes no sense as pro-lifers and conservatives will celebrate a decision to overturn Roe.
Rochelle Walensky said Americans who live in counties with medium levels of Covid-19 should avoid crowds and wear a mask. She wrote, “As of May 19th, over 45% of the U.S. population is in an area with a medium or high COVID-19 Community Level.”
In November 2021, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) partnered with the Munich Security Conference to conduct a tabletop exercise on reducing biological threats. On Page 10 of the 2021 NTI report, a possible Monkeypox outbreak was described, six months before the current international outbreak of the virus.
The manifesto attributed to Gendron is curious because it supports the gov’t narrative that white right-wing extremists are the biggest threat in our country. NY Governor Hochul signed executive orders to combat gun violence and domestic terrorism, and investigate social media platforms promoting violent extremism.
Tucker Carlson said that $40 billion is only the beginning and total spending could reach $3 TRILLION! Most of the money going to arms manufacturers. The total spending plan is not reported publicly because public support for war with Russia is close zero.
After journalist Shireen Abu Akleh’s funeral, unnamed Israeli officials told reporters that IDF soldiers in a military vehicle had been about 150 yards from where the journalists were working, and fired repeatedly about the time Abu Akleh was killed.
Jaden Hayden was placed in a nursing home and shared a room with an elderly resident, Mr. Norman Bledsoe, 75, whom he allegedly beat. Hayden reportedly filmed himself beating Mr. Bledsoe.

The UN document reads, “….the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States).
David Chou, 68, a US citizen who was born in Taiwan, allegedly chained church doors shut and then shot at a gathering of mostly elderly Taiwanese parishioners, killing a man who tackled him. Five other people were injured.
An official said that Former Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Democratic-run legislature never leveled with the public on the costs associated with the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act approved in 2019 because the outrageous price, hundreds of billions of dollars, would have made it unpopular.
Project Veritas published an undercover video of a senior engineer at Twitter, Siru Murugesan, admitting that “Twitter does not believe in free speech” and that Twitter is “actually censoring the Right and not the Left” because its employees are “all commie [communist] as f*ck.”
Candace Owens tweeted, “Doesn’t Bill Gates just have the best luck? Just like with the COVID vaccine— he makes an investment, and then suddenly there is a pandemic or shortage and everyone must line up for his product. Of course he’s invested in lab produced breast milk!”
As part of a climate change agenda intended to curb drilling, Biden issued an executive order halting drilling on public lands. He recently canceled two leases in the Gulf of Mexico and one in Alaska, which will contribute to current shortages.

Stefan Molyneux will shock your sensibilities at several levels with this analysis of why the collectivist left always wins. (This applies to all types of collectivists – Nazis, Fascists, etc,) There is some gutter language here, but that is overshadowed by Molyneaux’s hammer blows against dignified and non-controversial opposition to the relentless, violent, and murderous collectivist left. Hear him out and judge for yourself.
Carlson chronicles the many assaults against free speech for conservatives – and they are shocking when considered all together. Beliefs conventionally described as conservative just five years ago now are described as ‘terrorism.’ Meanwhile, actual terror by the left goes unpunished.
Stefan Molyneux delves deeply into the moral bankruptcy of globalists who willingly sacrifice little girls on the alter of multi-culturalism and internationalism. This is an impressive monologue that challenges us to ponder the depravity of those who protect and sustain rape, torture, and murder for political gain. A classical call for moral indignation and a personal declaration of war against pure evil. Well worth 27 minutes.
