Throughout the presidential campaign race, we saw many a candidate attempt to convince us of their dutiful and well thought out strategies for making America a better place for its people. We already know the outcome of the race, and we are convinced that America did indeed make the correct decision in regards to President Trump. However, have you ever thought what it might be like if someone else had won, such as Bernie Sanders? Luckily, that wasn’t the case, and we are here to tell you why it was a good thing it didn’t with 15 reasons why Bernie Sanders would be absolutely catastrophic for America.   

He Jumps The Gun

Senator Bernie Sanders is a self described Democratic Socialist, which of course, does not share the similar perspectives and view points as that of the Conservative Republican side or much of america. While he falls in the “Independent Party” category, he still is much more left leaning in terms of his policies and perspectives.

"Medicare For All" Plan

In short, Bernie Sanders has been promoting his reform for health insurance and coverage. His plans include doing away with the various amounts of insurers, and creating a “Medicare for all”, in which everyone is under only one health insurance policy that is available to the public. In his eyes, he sees coverage for all citizens in the United States, and individuals receiving the care they deserve. If we look at what happened with Obamacare, Sander’s plans would be catastrophic to say the least.

Bigger Government

Senator Bernie Sanders must not be taking the time to truly think about his ideas. The money has to come from somewhere; There is no way around that, obviously. Installing some of his programs and proposals within the nation would almost definitely triple the size of government.

His Way Or The Highway

Senator Bernie Sanders is a man who most certainly likes to get his point across, regardless of how long it takes or nonsensical it is. In fact, at one point in 2010, he stood and talked in front of the Senate floor for 8 hours straight discussing tax breaks for the wealthier class.

His Plans Would destroy the business climate

His plans would negatively affect the income and other earnings that are made by businesses. This would especially impact companies such as the pharmaceutical businesses, health insurance agencies, and even hospitals. This could be devastating for these businesses who depend on the free market for their products and services.

Placing The Blame

Senator Bernie Sanders has often been quoted in referring to the financial industry as a villain to the American society. He further blames the industry for issues such as racism, political injustice, corruption, and income inequality, shedding a light on the industry in terms of bullying the citizens of the nation.

Not Wall Street Friendly

Bernie Sanders, much like others who view more Democratic, liberal policies, do not shed a positive light on Wall Street and the stock market. The policies he would have put forward would have most certainly led to a stock market crash as investors would not want to invest in a big government, high tax environment.

Attack Against Big Banks/Corporations

Another policy that Bernie Sanders has backed for a while is the “Too Big To Fail, Too Big To Exist Act”. He has often been known to attack big corporations and banks, and this bill, if ever would be passed, would look to identify the banks and financial corporations that are too big to fail, and would give the government about a year to disassemble them from operation.

Different View On Immigration

Bernie Sanders would look to expand right of legal and illegal immigrants if ever he were to take a presidency. This is, of course, opposite to the views of President Trump, who has already placed effective travel bans in the country and is beginning work toward a border wall near Mexico. When looking at Bernie Sanders’ perspective, it would negatively affect american jobs and the safety of American citizens.

Shut Down Free Trade

Senator Bernie Sanders has also pledged, if he were ever to become President, that he would shut down some of the free trade policies that are initiated with China and the Trans Pacific Partnership. This could be a devastating blow to our economy.

Controversial Gun Views

Bernie Sanders has proven that he has mixed viewpoints when it comes to guns and gun control. Back in 2005, he voted for legal immunity within the gun industry. Since that time, he has begun to change his perspectives and has been working to reel back that immunity that was granted in the first place.
