Progressive delegates to Biden: "Medicare For All or Bust"

Recommended Posts

Of note - Joe Biden made headlines months back when he referred to Sanders' universal healthcare bill as "socialist malarkey" and said he would veto it if a Dem-controlled Congress passed it because of his disagreements with the plan. 

 

Progressives saving the day. :clap3:

Wanting the Democratic party to support a policy supported by a majority of Dems and independents makes someone a secret Trump supporter? Are you suggesting thst you believe Trump supports M4A?

You BETTER not be talking about me sis:deadbanana2:

I voted for Bernie in the primaries and do not really like Biden but come on...... 

 

I want Trump OUT. I’m not sure how this will resolve anything given the fact that Bernie lost the democratic nominee by A LOT. :rip:

No, Communion, that is not what I suggested. I hope you didn’t pull your hamstring reaching so wildly and HOPPING to a conclusion.

This is a cute way to pressure him to go more left, but they better be voting blue in November.

This is smart. If Bernie couldn't be the nominee, his delegates might as well consolidate their power to push Biden left. M4A is a very popular position with voters anyway, so adding it to the party platform would be wise.

Why do you want people to go without coverage in the middle of a pandemic? Just curious. :matty:

So then answer the question - how does wanting the Democratic candidate to support a policy that a majority of Dems and Indies support being a Trump supporter?

I do not, but Democrats are not focused on medicare for all and shouldn't be. Healthcare has always been an election killer. 2012 Dems got pummeled. 2018 Republicans got pummeled. The best way to do healthcare is to make moves after you win and not push big promises at the start that you can't follow through. Because it's very complicated, and it's an easy thing to get destroyed by with your opposition, especially seeing that Biden was present when ACA debuted :doc:

 

I think lots of politicians fall flat when they show all their cards. Let Biden win first and then we can see where we are as a country.

Democrats got pummeled for forcing people to buy health insurance while not banning insurance companies from raising premiums. 

 

Republicans got pummeled for trying to get rid of the protections put in place for those with pre-existinng conditions. 

 

Notice how when you limit access to care, you lose?.Something tells me that's why a majority of Democrats and Independents support giving everyone healthcare for free at point of service.

Biden accepting M4A means nothing if he doesn't win the senate (or even presidency, god forbid). Left-wing policies are popular when polled, agreed, but this popularity doesn't transfer to votes. Bernie is case in point 1. Or look up how referendums in Switzerland on taxes and finances go.

 

Biden literally cannot win any real votes by pledging to implement M4A. He can only lose from it.

This is a nonsense argument when given the fact that Biden said he would veto it even if a Dem-controlled Senate passed it. Why is Biden against the people who make up the Democratic party?
