Ari Fleischer's Savage Message for Bernie After Minimum Wage Expose

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is making it too easy for his critics. The democratic socialist has long lobbied for a minimum wage hike, which makes this new Washington Post report all the more juicy.

According to WaPo's reporting, the compensation and treatment Sanders's unionized employees are receiving "does not meet the standards Sanders espouses in his rhetoric."

It all played right in to former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer's hands. He added a few other areas of Bernie's hypocrisy, including his ambitious Medicare for All plan. That idea, as Politico can remind you, died in Sanders's home state of Vermont. 

“If cobalt blue Vermont couldn’t find a way to make single-payer happen, then it’s very unlikely that any other state will,” said Jack Mozloom, spokesman for the National Federation of Independent Business.

“There will never be a good time for a massive tax increase on employers and consumers in Vermont, so they should abandon that silly idea now and get serious,” Mozloom added.

Yet Sanders is still pursuing it nationwide.

To paraphrase Fleischer, ha! 

Even Vice President Joe Biden is calling Sanders's bluff on his socialist health care plans. At an AARP forum this week, the 2020 contender explained that Sanders's plan would cripple Medicare as we know it.
