All healthcare bill, (Friends of Bernie Sanders,
Not the Billionaires)
Only the Democratic Party is so out-of-touch, it could lose a race against Donald Trump and then blame Bernie Sanders.
So now, Daily Kos—which infamously called for all Democratic-voting citizens to rally to behind Hillary Clinton in March 2016—and Hillary bots around the nation are pretending the 2016 election never happened and Hillary did not deliver Donald Trump as president.
It's August 2017 and corproatist Dems are asserting the same young, minority and working-class families whom Sanders brought into the political process are going to be the cause of the 2018 mid-term losses, losses which corporatists are already anticipating. And that's Bernie Sanders' fault too, says Dana Milbank.
Dems will likely make Milbank Communications Director.
In reality-land, Our Revolution notes of the healthcare-for-all idea:
The U.S. spends more on health care per person, and as a percentage of gross domestic product, than any other advanced nation in the world, including Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. But all that money has not made Americans healthier than the rest of the world. Quite simply, in our high-priced health care system that leaves millions overlooked, we spend more yet end up with less.
Other industrialized nations are making the morally principled and financially responsible decision to provide universal health care to all of their people—and they do so while saving money by keeping people healthier. Those who say this goal is unachievable are selling the American people short.
Americans need a health care system that works for patients and providers. We need to ensure a strong health care workforce in all communities now and in the future. We need a system where all people can get the care they need to maintain and improve their health when they need it regardless of income, age or socioeconomic status. We need a system that works not just for millionaires and billionaires, but for all of us.
