The race for the Democrat presidential primaries is heating up.
Contenders are beginning to separate themselves into top and bottom tier campaigns.
And one top Trump challenger was caught on tape making this career-ending mistake.
Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders was considered one of the top-tier candidates coming into the Democrat presidential primaries.
Sanders is sinking in the polls and now he may have just sealed his own doom.
The Vermont Senator was caught on tape promising his government takeover of healthcare would include free health insurance and medical care for illegal aliens.
The Daily Caller reports:
“We’re gonna … create a Medicare for All health care system which guarantees health care to every man, woman, and child,” Sanders said during the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ (NALEO) presidential candidate forum Friday. “We will organize the American people around the idea that all people in this country have the right to health care.”
The moderator of the event asked Sanders if his plan would apply to illegal immigrants in the U.S.
“Absolutely, absolutely,” Sanders replied. “When I talk about health care being a human right, last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings as well.”
Sanders’ government-run healthcare scheme is estimated to cost 32 trillion dollars.
That was before he announced his support for giving free healthcare to the – at least – 12 million illegal aliens living in America.
Sanders also claimed the American people would be “delighted” to pay the higher taxes to finance government-run healthcare.
Outrageous statements like this – as well as promising free government goodies to illegal aliens – make it clear why his campaign is on its last legs.
