#SouthCarolinaPrimary Update: DEFINITELY issues around polling sites being merged w/ out voters knowing. In some places, merged polling site doesn’t have any signage about the new location. The South Carolina Election Commission, (803) 734-9060, has a list of merged polling sites
SCEC has no legal authority over enforcement of voting regulations and the county administrators who oversee the process.
Source South Carolina election officials began releasing information about the changes last Friday....through newspapers (not that many in South Carolina).

1. If you want Trump out of our White House on January 20 at noon, you need to vote for @JoeBiden. If you want to make a statement by picking a candidate whose ideology does not include private employers, you're going to help re-elect Trump. Read up on Democratic Socialism
2. before you troll me. And @MikeBloomberg if you help elect Trump you'll go down in history as a scoundrel. You may not care but you should be clear how history will view you. We need your help and having you at the table in 2020 would be fine with me. How about Treasury Sec?
3. I'd vote for Mike and @amyklobuchar @PeteButtigieg @ewarren & @TomSteyer before Trump. But Bernie having now been assisted by the Russians in two elections makes him not the candidate to wash the taste of Trump out of our mouths. A whole month he kept quiet why the Russians

1. Are @BernieSanders' numbers crashing in #SouthCarolina polls because his numbers were an artifact of a Russian GRU attack? If I were GRU, I'd go after young people of color to nominate Bernie and then focus on them when the Kompromat is dumped after he's the nominee. #Betrayal
2. IMO a radical admitted pro-Communist like Bernie has been on the KGB-GRU board his entire adult life. They know everything about his past. Like where he was in the 1968 Chicago Riots. Anyone know where he was? Are you curious? #SuperTuesday #SouthCarolinaPrimary
3. In any event, right now the most likely result is that it goes to a second ballot and the Super Delegates elect @JoeBiden.

THREAD.

As #BlackHistoryMonth ends and the #SouthCarolinaPrimary begins, let's revisit the story of Medicare & how it tangibly advanced racial equity in the 1960s.

The story shows the power of movement-aligned politics to effect social & system change.
Before Medicare, hospitals were deeply segregated due to Jim Crow. Many outright refused care to Black people. If care was provided, it was heavily segregated with separate entrances, waiting rooms, wards, even separate china & silverware. Separate, and certainly not equal.
Care was triaged by skin tone, not severity of condition. If you were Black with a serious illness, you would be lucky to find a hospital or clinic that allowed you to wait until all the White patients had been seen before you would receive medical attention.

Ok Pete,

Medicare For All is estimated to cost $47T over 10 YRS.

$30T of that is the projected total of the MONEY ALREADY BEING SPENT by local, state and federal budgets!!! Through Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA! (We don’t ‘need to pay’ for these, they exist)

Cont. ⬇️
The ADDITIONAL costs to gov’t spending to switch to a single payer sys. would be $17T

We negotiate drug prices and cost of medical devices, eliminate the majority of administrative cost from 13% down to the current 2% of Medicare, and control the prices of procedures.

⬇️
When we do those three things, we reduce the overall cost of healthcare. The remaining $17T is ‘paid for’ in Bernie’s plan. These are the taxes that will get us the revenue needed.

1. Creating a 4 percent income-based premium paid by employees, exempting the first $29,000.

1. Why am I going after @BernieSanders? I caucused for him in March 2016. Later, I spotted the Russians helping him and by July 2016 I posted what I saw. See my pinned Tweet. I never believed that Sanders and Manafort's partner Devine didn't know. They had to know if I did.
2. Then last week Sanders admitted he knew for the month he was moving up in the polls that the Russians were working to help him AGAIN and AGAIN he kept his mouth shut while they did their work. Fool me once. . . @JoeBiden @MikeBloomberg @PeteButtigieg @amyklobuchar
3. Our election has already been influenced by criminal foreign intelligence conspiracy. We can't afford to have zombie candidates elect a Russian asset. We appreciate the work and the policy focus of the folks who ran in @TheDemocrats nomination but only Biden and Bloomberg are
