Response to Renew Deal (Original post)

Wed Jan 13, 2016, 03:43 PM

12. She took a dumb talking point and added her own twist.

The talking point was that Single Payer gets rid of all the health programs. Chelsea added dismantle to the talking point and it blew up from there. Clinton is now back peddling and trying to push a more convoluted talking point.

Their problem was that it was a dumb talking point to begin with. All they got to do is quote Sanders admitting that they didn't have the votes for single payer much less the public option. But they took this convoluted argument path that makes no sense.

The thing is I don't think this is worth getting all up in arms about and can backfire.
