Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Can I say something about health care?


The policy of whoever we nominate really doesnít matter.

The whole thing will have to be hashed out in Congress anyway.

The important thing is theyíre all headed in the right direction.

This is a debate for next year. Itís pointless right now.

1. In my humble opinion, this election

 

Will not be won on policy.

4. Well, I've got my fighting panties

 

on right now. Kidding aside, everybody on that stage has what it takes to beat the motherfucker in the White House. With the possible exception of Bloomberg. I donít think he was up for it tonight. He was outmaneuvered more than a few times.

5. Yeah, I think he's toast.

 

But I hope he still keeps up with the attack ads, especially in the General. That should give him time to cool off after this Vegas style road rash!

I think it's Ladies' Night in Vegas myself. Both are strong and I think they will do well, they've been in the trenches and talking to women of color who come form cultures that value women more than this one does.

7. I agree.

 

I was glad to see a few of them come to each otherís defense a time or two. The whole thing exhausted me.

8. Original point also applies to the climate debate

 

Itís very simple, we all want to do something about it and they donít care.

And in fact, they actively support those who are killing us.

Then move on to Trump and terrible R policies generally.

Rinse repeat on every issue really.

9. So, Warren and Sanders should drop their advocacy of MfA?

 

Try to explain to voters that it doesn't matter what the nominee supports because Congress will make the final decision won't work.

10. I think MFA is the end goal

 


It seems to be a political loser right now though

I would start with a strong public option aka buy in to Medicare and a strong push on pharmaceutical costs.

Those two would put downward pressure on all premiums and eventually the private companies wonít even want to compete anymore

And there you have it...

11. More:

 

Incentives for hospitals to go non profit

Amend the ACA to allow people to switch to the PO even if they have other access

A Dem Administration will of course support health care expansion rather than using public resources to fight it in court

13. Yes ma'am, I'm with you on that

 

I was having a little mull last week about what if Pete won the nomination. I think heíd be smart to take Warren as his VP and could make her an offer she couldnít refuse.

It goes on to what would the dream cabinet be. Joe for SOS. Kamala for AG. Warren working on domestic policy with Senate majority leader Klobuchar.

What do you think?
