Dan Proft: “Yes” to the Goodies. “No” to the Gulags.

Big government Democrat politicians are happy to be puppets of corporate interests so long as the strings don’t show. They need rhetorical deniability for the campaign trail.

Similarly, Democrat primary voters generally embrace socialism by any other name so long as you don’t lay bare the repressive implications. They too need rhetorical deniability so they may continue to tell themselves they are the true heirs of American values or “the thing,” as Joe Biden affectionately terms it.

Bernie Sanders flamed out on Super Tuesday because he couldn’t keep the revolutionary in him under wraps on 60 Minutes two weeks earlier.

Rather than sticking to his fairy tale of socialism as harmonious, Nordic-style communal living, Sanders let his true self show in the form of cringe-worthy praise for Fidel Castro’s literacy program in communist Cuba.

Democrat primary voters came to Bernie Sanders for the “free” goodies but they couldn’t stay for the gulags.

Lanhee Chen: Don’t Be Fooled by the “Public Option”

Presidential candidates Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg all claim they’re proposing a moderate, less disruptive approach to health-care reform called the “public option”—a government policy offered as an alternative to private health insurance.

These have been presented as more modest solutions relative to Medicare for All.

Don’t believe it.

A public option could increase the federal deficit, destabilize the market for private health insurance while threatening overall health-care quality and choice.

By 2049, the public option could be the third most expensive government program in the nation—behind only Medicare and Social Security.

Of course, the public option would also quickly displace employer-based and other private insurance. The result: Longer wait times, narrower provider networks and reduced consumer choice.

Policymakers may yet find the middle ground in health care reform. But don’t be fooled: A government-run public option is NOT it.

Michael Medved: “Last Hurrah” for the Boomer Generation?

As the presidential campaign heats up, leaders over 70 control our politics. If Trump wins re-election, he’d be 78 at his term’s end—the oldest president ever.

Elizabeth Warren would be 75, Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg would both be 81, and Bernie Sanders would hit 83. Meanwhile, Speaker of the House Pelosi is already 79 and Senate leader Mitch McConnell, 77.

New York attorney Thomas Dewey notes this domination by senior citizens is new: Bill Clinton took office at age 46, and George W. Bush followed him at 54, beating the 52-year-old Vice President, Al Gore. Mr. Dewey seems puzzled by these contrasts, but they actually reflect the unshakable domination of government and culture by Baby Boomers, who ruled the roost in their 50s and still hold sway in their 70s. Members of this post-war population bulge could still reign past their 80s or, more plausibly, 2020 will be their Last Hurrah.
