#GASen: Jon Ossoff Embraces His Inner Bernie Bro, Praises Bernie’s Advocacy For Socialized Medicine As “Necessary”

“I welcome his support. His advocacy for ensuring that healthcare is a human right in this country … is necessary, is appreciated.”

Back in 2017, Ossoff ran—and lost—the most expensive House campaign in history for Georgia’s 6th district.  At the time, anti-Trump MSNBC host Joe Scarborough decried Ossoff as a “Bernie Sanders socialist.”  He was not wrong.

On Saturday, Bernie tweeted his support for Ossoff in the upcoming Georgia special election for the U. S. Senate.

On Sunday, Ossoff, who has never held any elected office, declared that he welcomed the support of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders and enthused about Bernie’s advocacy for economy-crushing, socialized medicine.

As Democrats lunge ever leftward, they embrace highly debatable concepts that are antithetical to America’s founding principles.  The socialist (/communist) idea that the government must provide health insurance or, the big Bernie dream, “access” to a government-run health care system to everyone as a basic “human right” is at the top of that list.

Ossoff’s embrace of his inner Bernie Bro did not go unnoticed by Ossoff opponent Republican Sen. David Perdue’s campaign.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff said he welcomes socialist senator Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) support in the state’s upcoming Senate runoff election.

“I welcome his support,” Ossoff said during a Sunday CNN appearance. “Again, look, I think that his advocacy for ensuring that health care is a human right in this country … is welcome, is necessary, is appreciated. And so is his support.”

Ossoff’s praise for Sanders could undermine the Georgia Democrat’s ability to distance himself from the far-left senator’s progressive policies. Ossoff has repeatedly claimed he does not support Medicare for All and the Green New Deal, both of which Sanders has championed.

Ossoff’s comments came one day after Sanders endorsed the Georgia Democrat in his bid to unseat Republican senator David Perdue. Perdue’s campaign accused Ossoff of “casually praising radical socialists and their dangerous agendas.”

“[Ossoff] thinks the elimination of private health insurance and taking coverage away from millions of Georgians is worthy of admiration,” Perdue spokesman John Burke said in a statement. “Ossoff isn’t hiding his radicalism, he’s telling us who he really is. We should believe him.”

I believe him.  Whether or not Georgia’s right-leaning and moderate voters believe him and vote accordingly on January 5 remains to be seen.

Jon T. Ossof is just like the rest of the 2020 progs….they know the voting system has been rigged so they’re no longer hiding their inner-Mao.

“Bernie Sanders socialist.”
why can’t you just call a true-blooded communist a communist?

As media is wont to say, is that just about a punch-able face?

Something about his smarmy contempt triggers my inner slap instinct.

You’ll vote for me on the other end of the machine whether you indicate it or not!

This election will be a shame like the Presidential

    gonzotx, this kind of comment will get you pilloried as a drug-addled, pessimistic, overwrought, whiny bitch, so be careful what you say.

    Heh.

      Don’t enable her Fuzzy. She has already said she is sitting out future elections because she has lost faith in the process. That is exactly the WRONG thing to do.

      How do you ever prove fraud if the vote split drops due to non-participants? That gets us nowhere. Vote and fight, vote and fight.

    Going Long Match Mao with the fix means when you win your mandate is obvious. As I understand it, the GA SoS ordered machines purged of votes and had enough time between halt, purge and half judges’ orders had Atlanta operatives erase the machines. Hillary would be proud of them.

This unaccomplished goofball shouldn’t be telling us anything.

Divide the US peacefully NOW, while we can avoid a civil war.

Well the one thing that can be done this time is 24×7 video surveillance outside of polling places, drop off boxes, county supervisor of election offices, etc. Instead of having eyewitnesses who recount the arrival of “vanloads of ballots with out of state plates”, we need to have the out of state plate numbers and video of folks carting ballots in at 3:00 am. There are limits to the photography and video you can shoot inside polling places (generally it is prohibited) but not outside. Georgia has an insane number of counties – I think it is 159 – ad each had a supervisor of elections. Some sparsely populated counties are unlikely to be the site of much Fraud, but Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett, and Cobb should be watched and recorded to the greatest degree possible.

It’s no longer about politics in Georgia. But about who can steal the vote. Shamefully our Governor and Sos dont care.

He can say or do anything or nothing….it no longer matters….our rulers will intall him just like they did Biden and nothing will be done about it

Why is this inane, mediocre twerp taken seriously with regard to anything? What has this spoiled brat actually accomplished in life that has convinced him he has any right or reason to exercise power over anyone or anything?

Maybe. However, the evidence indicates the problem is progressive prices, not costs.
