Bernie Sanders convinces a Trump supporter to agree with him on who’s screwing her

There was an interesting moment during a MSNBC town hall this week when Bernie Sanders seemed to convince a Trump voter that the administration she voted into office may pose a threat to her wellbeing.

Gail Sparks said she voted for Trump in 2016 because she wanted change. At one point, she complained that undocumented immigrants were taking jobs where she worked and were somehow lowering her pay.

Sparks then wondered who was going to pay for social safety nets like Medicare and Medicaid in the long run.

“Who’s paying for this? Who’s paying for the Medicaid? Who’s paying for the Social Security? Who’s paying for the Medicare?” she asked. “Now, have any of you seen down on the streets that it seems as though we have become the silent minority and not the majority?”

When host Chris Hayes asked her to clarify who she was talking about, Sparks replied, “The people who need the Medicare, the people who need the Social Security, who need the help with the education.”

Enter Bernie Sanders.

“Good point. Let’s see if we can go forward on this,” Sanders started out. “I am assuming that you believe, correct me if I’m wrong, that we should not cut Social Security or Medicare or Medicaid. Is that correct or not?”

Sparks agreed.

“Do you know who is now working very hard to try to do that? Republicans in Congress have a plan under the guise of saving Medicare and saving Social Security, making devastating cuts,” Sanders said. “That’s what the Republicans are now trying to do.”

“The other point that you made is, who is going to pay for this stuff? And that is a very fair point. What all of us should know is that over the last 25 years, there has been a massive transfer of wealth in this country from you to the top one-tenth of one percent. In other words, the middle class has shrunk and trillions of dollars have gone to the top one-tenth of one percent. Do you think it’s inappropriate to start asking those people to pay their fair share of taxes so we can adequately fund Medicaid and make public colleges and universities tuition-free? Is that an unfair thing to ask?”

Sparks replied, “I don’t think it’s an unfair thing to ask. They got rich off of us, so it’s time they put back.”

“Okay, that’s what I’m saying,” Sanders said.
