Rand Paul destroys Bernie the grouch!

Rand Paul absolutely destroys Bernie Sanders? talk about how uncompassionate America is ? TheBlaze

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) doesn’t seem to think America is not that nice of a place when it comes to those who are poor and needy. During Dr. Tom Price’s (R-GA) congressional hearing, Sanders threw a very pointed question at Price revolving around how the U.S. government is the only first-world country that does not make healthcare a right.

“The United States of America is the only country on Earth that does not guarantee healthcare to all people as a right,” said Sanders. “Canada does it. Every major country in Europe does it. Do you believe that healthcare is a right of all Americans whether they’re rich or they’re poor? Should people, because they are Americans, be able to go to the doctor when they need to? Be able to go into a hospital because they are Americans?”

“We are a compassionate society,” began Price in response, but was quickly cut off by Sanders.

“No, we are not a compassionate society!” Sanders quickly cut in, before going on about our childhood poverty rate and seniors not having a government safety net. Sanders asked his question again, only to receive an answer from Price that basically told Sanders that the good doctor was not going to engage in socialism when it came to healthcare.

Later on it was Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky’s turn. As many know, Paul is not only a staunch advocate of capitalism, and a great enemy to socialism, but he’s also a physician with a lot of experience with our healthcare system.

So of course, Paul was not going to take Sanders’ comments lying down.

“It’s also been insinuated that America is this horrible, rotten place. You know, that we don’t have compassion, and I guess my extension the physicians don’t,” began Paul. “As you worked as an emergency room physician, or as you worked as a physician, did you always agree as part of your engagement with the hospital to treat all comers regardless of whether they had an ability to pay?”

Price affirmed Paul’s question, and said that it was something he and his practice took pride in whether it was public or private.

But Paul wasn’t at all done.

The senator from Kentucky went on to bash those — in particular Sanders — who call America a horrible place for its people, yet extol the virtues of socialism, which has left countries with high recourses like Venezuela in poverty stricken shambles.

To put the final nail in the coffin for Sanders’ argument, Paul discussed just how charitable and giving the American people are.

“One of the things that’s extraordinary about our country is that just two years ago, in 2014, we gave away $400 billion privately. Not the government. Individually,” said Paul.

“We’re an incredibly compassionate society,” he finished.
