Bernie never was all that popular with Democrats. That's why he couldn't win the primary, in spite of running against what he considered the most flawed candidate that the Democrats could have possibly run against him.
Maybe he'll run as a Republican in 2020?
Bernie needs to keep doing what he's doing. The Democrats won't listen until they have no choice. And that will never happen unless people are riled up en masse.
The catastrophe that we need as a catalyst to overhaul our healthcare system is upon us. It's called our current healthcare system. People are going fucking broke in droves trying to pay, and the gangsters just keep showing up and demanding more and more. And the more corrupt the system gets, the easier it is for them to demand still more.
This one issue could break the entire middle class in one generation.
Tell you what--why not get a bunch of Bernieboys and girls to run against Dems in their primaries? The GOP was pulled way right (IMHO) by the fear of getting primaried. If UHC is really the issue you think it is, wouldn't down-ballot Dems fear the same thing? Why is the presidential line the only place where you can put real, practical pressure on Dems?
I think I know the answer....
