Simpleminded Socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Saturday called for the construction of “emergency housing” as a means to address the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
“We need to construct emergency housing to make sure that the homeless, survivors of domestic violence, and college students quarantined off campus are able to receive the shelter, health care, and nutrition they need,” Sanders said on Saturday:

Sanders, meanwhile, has been delivering near-daily updates on the coronavirus and using the opportunities to plug his vision for a universal health care system.
“Our country is at a severe disadvantage compared to every other major country on earth because we do not guarantee health care to all people as a right,” Sanders said on Thursday, making similar remarks on Friday.
“Poll after poll already shows us that the American people understand that we must do what every other major country on earth does, and that is to guarantee health care to all of our people as a human right, not a privilege,” he said on Friday.
“As we begin to see the failures and vulnerabilities of the current health care system, my guess is that those numbers, and the demand for universal health care, will only go up,” he added.
Of course, what America also sees is what an utter failure socialized medicine has been in Italy, Europe and in China.
Letting the Government decide on what choices you have when it comes to your health, is a recipe for disaster.
