Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he was working to include “human infrastructure” into President Joe Biden’s infrastructure package.

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “So you think that things that one could argue are important but not necessarily a part of an infrastructure package such as dealing with college debt? You think that that should be a part of the bill?”

Sanders said, “Well, you know, it depends on what you call infrastructure. Roads and bridges and tunnels are infrastructure. I think many of us see a crisis in human infrastructure. When working-class families can’t find good quality affordable child care, that’s human infrastructure.”

He continued, “One of the areas that I am working on right now is the need to expand Medicare in order to provide dental care and hearing aids and eye glasses for millions and millions of seniors who need these services but can’t afford it. Is that infrastructure? I think it is. Look, Jake, the truth is, in so many ways, we are behind many other countries throughout the world in providing for working families and the elderly and the children. And I think now is the time to begin addressing our physical infrastructure and our human infrastructure. I want to see that happen as soon as possible.”

The mouth and the ears are medical parts of the body.  Whether you are 2, or 20, or 50, or 90, I think those parts should be covered in any medical insurance you have.

People need child care, when they work in the gulag.

This seems to be the route the Progressive wing of the Democratic party are taking.

Label every big government scheme as "infrastructure."
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

As long as someone else is footing the bill, it's "infrastructure."  If Bernie wants to help the unwashed proletariat masses, he could always give them his money.
