Over the course of the 2020 presidential election, Bernie Sanders has run a campaign based on socialism and promises to give free handouts to everyone.
According to Sanders, he’s going to ensure free housing, free healthcare, free college, and the cancellation of medical debt and student loan debt. Even if Sanders somehow weaseled his way into office and taxed the wealthiest Americans at 100%, it still wouldn’t be enough to pay for everything that he’s promising.

In the wake of Sanders’ recent heart attack, questions have come up about whether or not he truly plans to remain in the 2020 presidential election. However, Breitbart News documents Sanders claims that he will stay in the election. This comes after Sanders previously admonished himself for not knowing when to “slow down.”
More on Sanders’ Promise to Stay in the 2020 Election
During a recent interview with CNN, Sanders stated that he’s “not a quitter” and is apparently in this for the long haul. The 2020 Democrat also claimed that his heart attack is being dramatized and blown out of context.
In Sanders’ own words:
“You know, when you hear the word ‘heart attack,’ you’re thinking of somebody lying on the ground in terrible pain. Wasn’t the case, OK? The day I woke up after the procedure, no pain, zero pain. No pain right now. I feel really good.”
Sanders then went on to state that his presidential campaign is gaining momentum and reaching American voters:
“Many of the issues that I talked about four years ago that were considered radical then and are kind of mainstream today. Many of my Democratic opponents are saying today what I said four years ago. We’ve struggled really hard to get to where we are right now, bringing millions of people together in the fight for justice, and I’m not a quitter.”
Why Sanders Ought to Drop Out
There are plenty of reasons that Sanders should drop out of the 2020 presidential election and they don’t have to do with his health. The reality is that everything Sanders stands for as a politician is outrageous and unaffordable. Sanders doesn’t bring anything of value to the 2020 race and he’s not fit to serve in the White House.

Making poor decisions in spending choices does not justify free handouts, contrary to the message which Sanders is telling countless Americans. There are no free lunches and everythign in life has a price. If Sanders truly cares about bringing “millions of people together,” the best thing he can do is announce the end of his 2020 presidential campaign.
