This is a long-term struggle.
We need some one to keep pushing. Democrats have been for that since FDR! I applaud Bernie for speaking out. I would admire him more if he had stayed a Democrat as he promised. Then Bernie could speak for the party.
But Bernie and Chris are speaking out.
Right now, the California legislature is considering a UHC plan for our state. If it passes...and if it defies the expectations of the right that it will create a fiscal crisis for the state...perhaps it will look like a reasonable option for others.
OTOH, if it doesn't pass in California, how can anyone suggest that the rest of the country is ready for the idea?
The fact that UHC didn't work in the one American state where it was tried doesn't exactly add to its political viability nationally.
Meaningless Fox poll but I must say I do credit those who still haven't accepted the fact that Bernie did not even win the primary though Hillary treated him with kid gloves. He was never vetted by Republicans who found him useful. It is a drumbeat a portion of Bernie voters still don't get and no one should expect them to realize they messed up big time in the last election. I don't mind saying this is particularly irritating as it seems some relying on Fox simply live in a bubble. Look at all the people suffering today because of that attitude. Wish you all listened to Bernie when he told you to vote for Hillary.
But nooooooooooooooo. Now we have to read endless drivel about how you didn't help get Trump in no, no way...musta been the rest of the libs via democrats. Couldn't be the conservative neo-progressive Bernie on and off supporters.

Sorry but that is dreamer talk. You know more dems are up for reelection and therefore likely to lose seats (same as it has always been in every election no matter the party.) And you know Universal healthcare is NOT, was NOT, and won't be until a decade or so from now. You all pretend Obama could have passed Universal even knowing better just as you pretend it can be passed now. Earth to Mars, this is reality we are living not a pretend game of any candidate saying what you want to hear is peachy.
Do you really think 2018 can undo a republican President, House, Senate, new SCOTUS numbers, and all departments below? Give me a break!!!!
