When Sanders debates Trump in California next week can these two authors of this article asking some of the questions ?

Since Hillary won't be there the authors won't be subjected to her edict that "single payer is never happening in the US".

I think the two authors just found a way to balance the budget. Bring in a lot more illegal immigrants that pay a lot of taxes and use minimal services. Seems pretty simple. How come nobody else thought about that?

The msm would never let us find out even if somebody "else thought about that", they need more drama and never let facts get in the way of a good story.

The arithmetic on amounts paid into SS and Medicare don't correlate. Medicare is 1.45% with no limit and SS is 6.2% with a limit of $118,000 this year. The contributions to SS were stated to be $13 billion and to Medicare $11 billion. The $13 billion comes from the SSA's own estimates. The $11 billion comes from ??? and is more than the ¼ it should be using arithmetic. I am confused.

Looks like the California Sanders/Trump debate is off again unless Saturday Night Live stages one.
