Fox News exits had 70% backing government healthcare

Fox News exits had 70% backing govt healthcare and big majorities for climate action. Florida passed $15 minimum wage with 60% of vote. Dems could have run on these things but instead they chose some vague sanctimonious soul of the nation bullshit.

Now that we have a presumptive Dem winner

Now that we have a presumptive Dem winner who claims during a pandemic that he’d veto Medicare for All if it passed Congress, MSNBC runs segments contrasting the USA’s crappy healthcare system with that of other countries who pay a lot less for better care.

Trump is a violation of the rules…

This mantra might come from the powerful but it doesn’t stop there. Log onto Facebook sometime and read the run of memes and whatnot of your more liberal-minded friends. The main theme is that Trump is a violation of the rules, not that the rules are themselves inherently [screwed up].

Let’s focus on the hardship of the wealthy few & their self-serving “markets” instead

Folks are – quite literally – begging for help with medical bills, and we’re making it simpler for them to do that, instead of fixing the system that forces them to beg, in the first place.

Your precious hedge fund millions aren’t worth this.

GoFundMe actually has a category for medical expenses on their website now.

The horror stories of how people in this country struggle every day just to survive are endless.

But please, let’s focus on the hardship of the wealthy few & their self-serving “markets” instead.

When centrists talk about ‘purity tests’

When Obama/centrists talk about ‘purity tests’ and how we can’t have Medicare for all, I’d remind them that 60 years ago JFK demanded that we have universal healthcare.

60 YEARS AGO

That’s what being pragmatic has brought us, absolutely nothing.

Enough.

This is how you pitch Medicare for All:

This is how you pitch #MedicareforAll:

“We exempt the first $29k in income… you make $60k, you pay on $31k… we’ll have a 4% income tax, $1200 dollars a year, comprehensive care for your entire lifetime. How’s that?”

Think what we could do with the kind of airtime they gave Trump

Green New Deal, Medicare for All, free public higher ed & a student debt bailout: all these ideas came from Greens. With just a trickle of media exposure, we’ve changed the national debate. Think what we could do with the kind of airtime they gave Trump.

With the 2020 election coming up fast, the fight is on

With the 2020 election coming up fast, the fight is on for a voting system we can trust. After 2016, state of PA admitted they couldn’t verify their election results. That’s why we demand nothing less than voter-verifiable, auditable paper ballots for all!
