<p>This
 popular CNN article has been circulating recently, claiming that an 
economist has studied Bernie Sanders’ plans and concluded that they’d be
 an astounding success. [a]<br/><br/> Here’s the problem, THAT economist 
happens to be the same exact economist who AUTHORED Bernie’s proposal. 
Published back on July 31, 2013, rogue economist Gerald Friedman, a man 
who proudly refers to himself as a “heterodox economist,”
 [b] which means that he doesn’t adhere to widely accepted economic 
beliefs, released a healthcare proposal that involved scrapping the 
entire private health insurance system in favor of government managed 
health insurance. [c] That plan was based off of a hypothetical one year
 budget. Then, a few years later, when Bernie Sanders decided to run for
 president, Sanders adopted this proposal as “his” plan for healthcare. 
Friedman then revised the plan to make it a 10 year proposal, since 
presidential budgets are often 10 year plans. A Huffington Post article,
 written by Friedman, lays out his 10 year plan as he attempts to defend
 Sanders from earlier attacks. [d]<br/><br/> Then comes this latest 
article where CNN acts almost as though Sanders just had his plans 
thoroughly vetted by an impartial economist.  He CLEARLY didn’t. <br/><br/>
 This article, on the grounds that it’s a conflict of interest, 
shouldn’t be regarded as independently verified vindication of Bernie’s 
plans. It’s not legit. Sanders has ALWAYS had this one rogue economist 
on his side. This CNN article is the equivalent of WAC authoring a 
“jobs-boosting” proposal back in 2013, where Rand Paul then chooses to 
adopt it as “his” presidential plan around 2015, then someone questions 
whether or not the plan would actually work as advertised, so WAC writes
 an essay defending what is now referred to as “Rand Paul’s Plan,” and 
CNN references that new essay with the narrative, “independent 
researchers confirm Paul’s plan would work,” despite it really just 
being us declaring our own ideas to be sound. THAT would NOT be 
independent verification, and neither is Friedman declaring his own 
ideas to be wonderful.<br/><br/> Let’s end with some important notes, some of which were even found in the CNN article:<br/><br/>
 “Other economists feel that Friedman’s analysis is overly optimistic, 
saying it would be difficult to achieve that level of economic 
prosperity. [Furthermore], last week, the Committee for a Responsible 
Federal Budget said Sanders’ plan to pay for health care would fall 
short by at least $3 trillion.” [a] Lastly, even Paul Krugman, of all 
people, has come out against Sanders’ plan, acknowledging that it would 
require so much additional tax revenue that the middle class (not just 
the wealthy) would see tax increases. He also points out that those with
 high quality private insurance would have to trade it in for mere 
satisfactory insurance via the the proposed single payer system. [e]<br/><br/>
 Regardless of the details, which can be debated at length another time,
 one should not be tricked into thinking that Sanders just had his plan 
successfully vetted and vindicated. He didn’t. All that happened was ONE
 rogue economist announced he thought his own ideas were really smart.<br/> ————————-<br/> Sources:<br/> [a]<br/><a href="http://money.cnn.com/2016/02/08/news/economy/sanders-income-jobs/index.html">http://money.cnn.com/2016/02/08/news/economy/sanders-income-jobs/index.html</a><br/><br/> [b]<br/><a href="http://www.pnhp.org/sites/default/files/Funding%20HR%20676_Friedman_7.31.13_proofed.pdf">http://www.pnhp.org/sites/default/files/Funding%20HR%20676_Friedman_7.31.13_proofed.pdf</a><br/><br/> [c]<br/><a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pnhp.org%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2FFunding%2520HR%2520676_Friedman_7.31.13_proofed.pdf&amp;h=6AQE18lVO&amp;enc=AZPJb2tURL4hl7HsxW9zy7_RszEMSPot0Kn-nYZ5wI2PPiGBqSRUiYz_uucz05mzbr5vYkOa94fSDuknU3-QqWxvPDiVBnHTVVjnd38uSmJqHODBbCS_KcwH1wVNLxZFJ0AhS9JxzUUxv1Se2bX4UhJvQLtQU8H07v_otMpRSZ606wzhnjtPT_ttRQllRN0_4zM&amp;s=1">http://www.pnhp.org/sites/default/files/Funding%20HR%20676_Friedman_7.31.13_proofed.pdf</a><br/><br/> [d]<br/><a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fm.huffpost.com%2Fus%2Fentry%2Fthe-wall-street-journal-k_b_8143062.html&amp;h=LAQE05D6K&amp;enc=AZMfGZXQvt08iFQktBja-5jFJU6sk6N4vua6LVJm7S5q86EAFjcq_PPAeFfc4DxZFbQ3yFjy1qizaNQOi8RDiLQfNpYn9K6NAmbHPekay1bhAGT1VbNXZ25iIkqgJkSb-Mh4q7aPph3qExhcq1UEwQqpVtgDcqY2WKhHLef7iIUBxbkYZxd8ymIYfzfqjW0ZRF8&amp;s=1">http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/the-wall-street-journal-k_b_8143062.html</a><br/><br/> [e]<br/><a href="http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/01/18/opinion/health-reform-realities.html?action=click&amp;pgtype=Homepage&amp;clickSource=story-heading&amp;module=opinion-c-col-right-region&amp;region=opinion-c-col-right-region&amp;WT.nav=opinion-c-col-right-region&amp;_r=0&amp;referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.politicususa.com%2F2016%2F01%2F18%2Fpaul-krugman-hillary-bernie-wrong-healthcare.html">http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/01/18/opinion/health-reform-realities.html?action=click&amp;pgtype=Homepage&amp;clickSource=story-heading&amp;module=opinion-c-col-right-region&amp;region=opinion-c-col-right-region&amp;WT.nav=opinion-c-col-right-region&amp;_r=0&amp;referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.politicususa.com%2F2016%2F01%2F18%2Fpaul-krugman-hillary-bernie-wrong-healthcare.html</a><br/><br/><a href="https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/feelthebern">#feelthebern</a><br/></p>
