BREAKING NEWS – Las Vegas Nevada – The politically powerful Culinary Union is punching back at supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who have lashed out at the union after it began distributing a one-pager to members warning that the Democratic presidential hopeful would “end Culinary Healthcare” if elected president.
Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello-Kline said in a statement that Sanders supporters have “viciously attacked” the union since it began distributing a one-pager to union members that takes specific aim at the Vermont senator over his Medicare-for-all policy. The Culinary Union, which provides insurance to 130,000 of its members and their families through a special kind of union health trust, strongly opposes the creation of a single-payer, government-run health insurance system on the grounds that it would eliminate their health plan.
Sanders promptly responded. “If I had it my way, the Culinary Union in Las Vegas would be abolished!” he explained. “I believe that buffets should be a human right as in ‘free’. And hotels in Sin City should not be charging homeless people a penny to stay in their rooms, including a free personal masseuse to help sooth the aches and pains from them wandering the streets all day collecting cans and begging for money!”
