70% of all Americans and 85% of Democrats support Medicare For All. So why are democratic “leaders” like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein and newly appointed Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries NOT endorsing Bernie Sanders’ calls for it? If you don’t give a full-throated endorsement for something 85% of your voters want, then who the hell do you represent? It ain’t the voters. Yet few of the voters dare to insist that their representatives do represent their interests want because they’re trapped in a vote blue no matter who, a God-send for corrupt Dems who bend for their donors, not the people. If you support politicians who ignore your interests, then I hope you enjoy never getting what most you want.
At least Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris do support it. I didn’t say that I trusted them, but at least they pretend to support it at the moment.
And for those of you who like to whine that Bernie isn’t a Democrat, why is someone who isn’t a Democrat pushing health care reform supported by 85% of Democrats? He’s more like a Democrat than the party’s leaders in this respect.
