I agree with Shaun King, why in the hell aren’t they all on board… Democrats… creating Independents every…single…day.


In a recent poll from the health insurance industry, only 8% of Americans actually want the United States Senate to pass the terrible Trumpcare bill, also known as the Affordable Health Care Act, that the House passed a few weeks ago.

That’s about as bad as it gets — not just for a health care poll, but for anything. Have you ever seen a movie on Rotten Tomatoes with a score of 8%? Hell, even the new Baywatch movie has a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. In fact, there’s not a major movie out in theaters right now with a Rotten Tomatoes score of less than 10%. Nobody likes Trumpcare. Tens of millions of everyday people will lose their health insurance, rates will skyrocket for America’s seniors, and pre-existing conditions will become a problem again.

Republicans, so hell-bent on destroying Obamacare for the past eight years, never really bothered to do the hard work of coming up with a better plan that lowers costs and insures more people. They’ve got nothing. In fact, what they are proposing is worse than nothing.

Every single Democrat in the country would be smart to divert at least half of their energy away from blasting Trumpcare to fighting for Medicare for All. If it becomes law in California, that will change the game for the entire country. For the third year in a row, a similar Medicare for All bill has passed the New York State Assembly. Nevada is getting closer to its own plan to open up Medicare for All there.
