Protesters Offer Unique Preview of Single Payer

According to The Blaze, anti-Trump protesters have discovered an innovative new tactic to persuade voters.

Connecticut protesters blocked a major highway, forcing EMT’s to perform an emergency medical procedure on a critically ill patient in the ambulance, rather than at the hospital.  State Police say they informed the protesters of the medical emergency taking place, and they still refused to open up access for the emergency vehicle.

I’m not a political communications consultant, but it’s difficult to see how clogging traffic, frustrating commuters, and impeding emergency medical care is a great strategy for winning over voters.  But maybe they are just offering a candid preview of what life would be like with these “Bernie Bros” in charge?

Long delays, substandard medical care, incompetent leftists standing between you and a medical procedure?  If that’s not a brilliant portrait of socialized medicine,  I don’t know what is.
