Denmark Just 'Burned' Bernie Sanders -- Country's Prime Minister Says Presidential Hopeful Is Lying To Those Who 'Feel The Bern'

The 2016 Presidential Race has picked up aggressively as we speed towards election day. For those who identify themselves as liberal, it seems they have found their champion, their knight in shining armor, in the form of Bernie Sanders. The United States Senator from Vermont turned frontrunner for the Democratic Party has gained massive popularity among Millennials for his social democratic policies. Though Sanders himself has broken down how he will incorporate said policies, most people simply know them as tacking the term "free" to healthcare, college, and other social services.

It is also well-known that Bernie Sanders often cites the Nordic model of social democracy as the basis for his model too, specifically Denmark. However, reports show Sanders was "burned" by the very country he admires. Denmark's Prime Minister said Sanders is lying to those who "Feel the Bern" about their economic model.

"I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy."
"In the past, people never asked for help unless they needed it. My grandmother was offered a pension and she was offended. She did not need it. But now people do not have that mentality. They think of these benefits as their rights. The rights have just expanded and expanded. And it has brought us a good quality of life. But now we need to go back to the rights and the duties. We all have to contribute."

To be fair, Bernie Sander's policies do sound great on paper. Free education, free healthcare, and everything else free under the sun is a dream come true for many who never had anything. However, accountability needs to be incorporated as well, which might be something Sanders does have in mind, but he hasn't made it known thus far. Maybe its because presenting accountability might just be unfavorable to those who "Feel the Bern."
