Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Pete is the big winner. Now, the contest starts

Sanders won a state he should have won. But the improbable campaign of Mayor Pete leaves NH with a delegate lead. Combined with Iowa delegates, Buttigieg now has a total of 23, Sanders has 21 and Klobuchar has 7. Now, states with an actual minority population are voting. If no one reaches the 1990 and this goes to convention- Sanders will not ban the nominee. The party isn't going to nominate a Democratic Socialist. Bernie needs him really rack up delegates over next few weeks.

1. "Sanders will not ban the nominee"?

 

be? back? become? I'm not sure how Sanders or any other candidate could "ban" the nominee.

5. The phase in was part of the original bill

 

Here's What's In Bernie Sanders' 'Medicare For All' Bill

September 14, 2017

Phased in over time. The Sanders plan wouldn't extend insurance to all Americans immediately; rather, it would do it over four years (and would, as stated above, greatly change the program). The first year, the Medicare eligibility age would be lowered to 55. That would move to 45 and then to 35 over the following two years, until finally, in the fourth year, everyone would be covered.

4. Socialism is anything that offends the ideological sensibilities of the christofascists...

 

Socialist is just an epithet that has replaced the N word.
