Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) acknowledged that it was his view “full socialism” was on display in the Democratic Party, especially among that party’s 2020 presidential hopefuls.

McConnell was asked about a proposal by his colleague Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to make Medicare available for all. The Kentucky Republican said that was a sign of just how the Democratic Party has embraced socialism.

“Not as long as I’m majority leader. It ought to be called Medicare for none because as the setup piece pointed out 180 million American’s would lose the private health insurance that many of them negotiated for at work. Medicare itself — the current recipients have been paying into all these years would be completely drained by adding all these additional people. If you want to turn American into a socialist country, this is the first step, that coupled of course with the Green New Deal, which would eliminate a whole lot of jobs.
