  1. ==================================================================== Any of my favorites I will vote for .......... which leaves me with an open mind. =====================================================================
  2. Neither Bill nor Hillary backed UHC/Medicare for All. In fact Bill chaired Democratic Leadership Council for awhile = supported with Koch dollars. Yes I got duped by these DINO's hook, line and sinker.
  3. There is nothing on the table that is free ...... Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Public Education, Clean Air and Water are all investments paid for by the taxpayer. War is not free and it is draining our wallets aka tax dollar money hole.
  4. === Any of my favorites I will vote for .......... and they all should be promoting voter registration with gusto because the GOP will purge as many voters as they can. BEGIN ORGANIZING YOUR VOTING DAY PACKETS = Democracy NOW Voters must assume CONSERVATIVES may have purged YOU from the voting rolls. Any way possible Okay let's plan ahead. VOTE VOTE VOTE Voters ORGANIZE A VOTING DAY PACKET which should contain: --- a birth certificate --- drivers license or state ID card --- proof of voter registration etc etc etc. --- Keep it close by as voting opportunities will occur about 4 times in the next 10 months. Let's get on with it. WE voters have a mess to clean up. Sorry to say the grand ole party that represented the Fiscal Conservative/Socially Responsible republicans is dead. Over thrown by a radical right wing Libertarian coup which represents hate and outlaws. Once again….Voters BEGIN ORGANIZING YOUR VOTING DAY PACKET. Keep it close by ALWAYS. CONSERVATIVES will never give up squashing democracy and YOUR right to vote. ==================================================================================================================================================== We need to stop Republicans in states around the country from enacting racist voter ID and voter suppression laws. Passing the Voting Rights Amendment Act now is the best way to do it. Tell Congress: Restore the Voting Rights Act now. https://act.credoaction.com/sign/voting_rights_amendment_act/?t=3&akid=11550.1167330.RnT3Z4
  5. I say the consensus will become : Elizabeth Warren Tulsi Gabbard Bill de Blasio Bernie Sanders Kamala Harris Kirsten Gillibrand as Biden continues to struggle. Starting at the top leaves only going down in the end. Biden is very much a special interest candidate which improves nothing.
  6. ================= By Marcia Angell, M.D. for Huffington Post – Here is my program for real reform: Well, the House health reform bill — known to Republicans as the Government Takeover — finally passed after one of Congress’s longer, less enlightening debates. Two stalwarts of the single-payer movement split their votes; John Conyers voted for it; Dennis Kucinich against. Kucinich was right. Conservative rhetoric notwithstanding, the House bill is not a “government takeover.” I wish it were. Instead, it enshrines and subsidizes the “takeover” by the investor-owned insurance industry that occurred after the failure of the Clinton reform effort in 1994. To be sure, the bill has a few good provisions (expansion of Medicaid, for example), but they are marginal. The House bill would take money out of Medicare, and divert it to the private sector and, to some extent, to Medicaid. The remaining costs of the legislation would be paid for by taxes on the wealthy. But although the bill might pay for itself, it does nothing to solve the problem of runaway inflation in the system as a whole. It’s a shell game in which money is moved from one part of our fragmented system to another. http://www.healthcare-now.org/is-the-house-health-care-bill-better-than-nothing/ Healthcare-NOW! Members Opposed Current Version of OBAMACARE Congressional Health Bill Over 125 Healthcare-NOW! members at our 2009 strategy conference voted to oppose the current Congressional version of health insurance reform legislation. While we recognize that many of our allies and supporters may disagree about specific aspects of the pending legislation, we believe that, taken as a whole, it is not worthy of our support. In fact, most of the so-called reforms contained in the bills have already been tried and proven to be a failure at the state level in Massachusetts. Instead, we should act based on evidence of what works. Medicare, with its lower administrative costs and higher rates of satisfaction, remains the “gold standard” for real healthcare reform. We anticipated the healthcare debate this year would focus on the true stakeholders: patients and those who care for them. But improved Medicare for All (single-payer) was pushed off the table, by Congress and the private health industry, preventing the American people from learning how access to quality, universal care can be financed without increasing cost to the public. http://www.healthcare-now.org/healthcare-now-members-oppose-current-version-of-congressional-health-bill/
  7. Thus makes investors profiteers thus many elected officials should recuse themselves from health care discussions and such. Certainly cannot vote on such.
  8. ObamaCare on steroids is no improvement = a winner for the insurance industry.
