Why single payer health care is a winning issue everywhere: generational poverty

@9 "small government" is effectively code word for deregulation and privatization in the age of environmental limits. Is that what you want?

Nobody wants a bloated bureaucracy unable to attend to the problems it is designed to tackle but considering the enormous challenges ahead, I seriously doubt that any kind of small government is going to be desirable for quite a while. In fact, advocating for one at this juncture should be construed as a form of sabotage.

During the campaign, establishment Democrats denied that people like those in the rust belt had reasons to not be optimistic about their future, and they lost.

Now, establishment Democrats deny that people who need it the most, can't afford health care under the ACA because of rising deductibles. Big mistake, again.

Charles has understood nothing. Single payer healthcare is greatly popular with the people that we need to get to vote in the next mid-term and presidential elections. Making it a campaign issue now is what we need, not continue to play defense for Romney care that, in spite of various claims to the contrary, is not sustainable due to rising costs.

@7 Warren isn't perfect but she is hardly responsible for the betrayal of neoliberal Democrats.. I think she knows that a strong grass-root movement is the only way forward.

@1 because biting political speech isn't also political leadership for the grass-root? are you claiming that Warren only spoke to burn Republicans? what an odd perspective you have.

" it's not that Gorsuch is unqualified. That's not the issue."

To her credit, Murray points out first the illegitimacy of a supreme court selected under such circumstances but thankfully, she also appears to think he is not qualified by mentioning his extreme conservatism.

More arguments for a public ISP utility if there weren't already plenty to justify one. Let's cut out the middle men who'll stop at nothing to make a buck.

Does this mean corporate media will finally acknowledge that Ryan isn't a policy wonk but a far right wing hack that want to take us back to 19th century governance? Probably not.

The left needs a progressive not someone who wants to lower corporate taxes and don't start telling us you would prefer him to Trump because progressives supporting neoliberal Clinton is the most important factor that got us where we are today.
