Democrats Betray Single-Payer Again...

Post by Rockhopper on Tue Jun 27, 2017 2:07 pm

I recall a night of drinking last year with an old friend who has been spearheading that effort, as he rebuffed my skepticism, and insisted that this time there would be a really progressive takeover of the California party, and single-payer would prove it. After all, once enough progressive pressure was been put on the legislators, the bill would be going to super-progressive Democratic Governor, Jerry Brown, who had made advocacy of single-payer a centerpiece of his run for President in 1992, saying: “We treat health care not as a commodity to be played with for profit but rather the right of every American citizen when they’re born.” Bernie foretold.

Unfortunately, today that Governor is, according to Paul Song, co-chair of the CHC, “doing everything he can to make sure this never gets on his desk.” And it won’t. Unfortunately, all the Democrats like Rendon, who “claims to be a personal supporter of single-payer,” will make sure that their most progressive governor is not put in the embarrassing position of having to reject what he’s been ostensibly arguing for for twenty-five years, of demonstrating so blatantly what a fraud his, and his party’s, progressive pretensions are.

Those ass-hats will pay for that betrayal when the voters go for the actual progressives and unseat all the pro-corporate jacks who lied their way to office.

TYT have a group called the Justice Democrats Len. They are Bernie Backers and are calling for everything Bern stands for.

Single Payer Health Care will come in very soon Len. More and more people are seeing that it is the only way to get good health care without bankrupting people.

Non of this makes any sense. All that is happening is we are going round, and round, each time it gets more confusing than the last time.
I may sound a bit pessimistic right now, but I have no reason to be optimistic.
These are issues that a 5 year old would solve in 2 minutes, they make it sound so complicated as  if we stupid people do not know what health care means.
Who are these high IQ people that are the leaders of the first world?
