Van Jones Group Uses Kids Video to Push Universal Health Care, Higher Taxes

News

"When everyone has health care, we're all healthier."

Because there's nothing more convincing than using kids who don't understand government and economics, Van Jones's Rebuild the Dream group is employing tiny tots to push a progressive liberal agenda in a new video.

In order to trumpet the group's new "Contract for the American Dream" -- which we talked about earlier this week -- it filmed a bunch of kids explaining the contract's 10 points. I would excerpt it now with them talking about raising taxes and giving free health care to all, but that would rob the video of its full affect. See for yourself:

Hot Air sums it up with the appropriate level of snark:

If you’re wondering how we can possibly afford “Medicare for all” when we can’t afford Medicare for some, you obviously missed this video from a few weeks ago of Jones reassuring America that we are not in fact broke, no matter how many zeroes there might be up on that national debt scoreboard. All we need to do to build the progressive welfare state of our dreams is get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, nationalize health care so that we can dictate the price of services to medical practitioners from coast to coast, and hike taxes on the rich — and eventually the middle class, of course — way way waaaaay up. How far up? Really far. It’s working for Europe, isn’t it?
