Thread. Un mese fa mio marito è svenuto in palestra. Siccome è un omone, ha dato una bella botta e si è aperto la testa. Qualcuno ha chiamato l'ambulanza, l'hanno portato in ospedale, gli hanno dato cinque punti, gli hanno fatto una flebo, le analisi del sangue e un ECG.
Arrivati verso le 13.30, alle 6 di sera eravamo a casa. Oggi è arrivato il conto dell'ospedale. Indovinate quanto è. Ve lo dico io: cinquemila dollari. Siccome siamo assicurati e paghiamo in due 1200 dollari al mese, l'assicurazione copre gran parte e ne paga 4800, a noi 200.
La cosa più folle sono i prezzi: La IV infusion cioè la flebo che immagino sarà stata di acqua e sali minerali costa 907 dollari. I punti alla testa 812. Elettrocardiogramma 345. Poi c'è una "emergency service" che mi immagino sia l'ambulanza che costa la bellezza di 1600!

I put this thread up Friday. Few RTs because #disability ♿ and #poverty are boring to people who aren't living it.

That's a real problem in America.

Yet my mentions were full of people facing the same struggle --the fear, frustration and isolation.

The failure to prioritize sick & #disabled people in America is an actual catastrophe for millions. We already know nearly all of America's #homeless suffer from some #disability.

Also, 81M disabled & 131M chronically ill Americans struggle financially due to medical costs.
When the #GOPTaxScam eviscerated the #ACA mandate, it jacked up the premiums for every sick person in America. Mine went from $239 a month for my HMO to $1,978.10.

The CBO said it would happen and it did. Millions have dropped their health insurance because of these price hikes.

In the last two years, we’ve learned that #resistance means getting involved at all levels of government. Our members have doorknocked with @swingleft, lobbied for police demilitarization in Sacramento, met often with Congressional staff and rallied for #FamiliesBelongTogether 1/
Our members are working at the state level to craft new gun control legislation and organizing at the City level for a #publicbank. We continue to pressure @SpeakerPelosi and @SenFeinstein to sign onto the #GreenNewDeal. We want #Medicare4All and we won’t accept a racist wall. 2/
In the last two years, we’ve organized countless phone banks, text banks and postcard campaigns. We’ve learned about burnout. We also learned how crucial it is to amplify the voices of organizations that have been around and in the trenches far longer than we. 3/

Not one person running for president in 2020 has a #disability platform thus far.
#HillaryClinton had one in 2016.
She had #disabled people on her staff.
She'd been addressing disability for decades.
She invited disabled people to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
One in five Americans has a disability, according to the CDC.
We are the country's largest minority.
Why aren't candidates falling all over themselves to reach out to us?
Because we have been rendered invisible.
That much change.
Some candidates are pushing #Medicare4All which we need in this country, but not one has addressed the huge gaps for coverage of the #disabled.

I wrote about how many women are impacted by #disability in this investigation for @damemagazine:…

The public is acting as early investor, putting tons of money in the development of drugs that then become privatized.

They receive no return on the investment that they have made. - @AOC
NNU Executive Director @NNUBonnie on why we can't settle for anything less than #MedicareForAll:

"The opposition, the insurance companies and pharma, will come out against anything, whether it's a half-measure or even one-quarter. We have to aim high."…

Good piece on why @BernieSanders has a strong foundation for a 2020 POTUS run. I'll add some more fuel to this bern as someone who was one of Bernie's 2016 California delegates. #Bernie2020 thread ⬇️
Let's start with age issue.

Nancy Pelosi is 78 = 1-1/2 years older than Bernie. She's up for SOTH.

Dianne Feinstein is 85 = 8 years older than Bernie. She was re-elected and will be 91 when her term ends.

Their age related to being able to serve office has not been a factor.
Reality. Dem party is split into 2 sides because of ideological divide primarily around 💰 in politics + corporate influence on policy.

Which side can win over Independents (51% of electorate), rural voters, and those who feel marginalized?

Bernie won these voters in 2016.

What it's like, and what it costs, to go through a (complicated) pregnancy in the Canadian health care system: a thread.

This is very personal, but also political. And it's especially for anyone trying to gaslight Americans into thinking that socialized health care is bad. #m4a
In early January, my partner and I started trying for our first baby. On January 15, I took a pregnancy test and was shocked and delighted to have a doctor confirm it. Holy shit, it was happening! And so quickly! 

I surprised my partner with a cake I decorated myself on the bus:
We were SO excited. I registered with an amazing midwifery clinic in Vancouver. Had initial appointments, blood tests and genetic screenings. Ultrasound at 10 weeks showed a healthy, wiggly little peanut. Everything was looking good.

Total medical costs so far: $0.

Let's have a conversation about #healthcare that's larger than who pays for it shall we? For this thread I'm going to assume we can pass #MedicareForAll and insurance is no longer an issue. Now let's talk about what problems would still exist for women's healthcare /1
In this scenario #Medicare4All has been passed with the repeal of #Hyde so we don't have a problem funding abortions for anyone! But wait...does that overturn #TRAP laws? Waiting periods? Personhood bills? Heartbeat bills? 20 week bans? Specifically fund Planned Parenthood /2
Unfortunately #MedicareForAll wouldn't overturn all those pesky anti abortion laws meaning abortion would be insured if (and that's a big if) you have access to it. The reason you need Planned Parenthood still is because not all doctors choose to perform abortion /3

We live in a society that actively and systemically redistributes the vast majority of the wealth generated by labor, by the people who actually work, "working class/WC", to those whose income is generated not by what they contribute but by what they possess, "ownership class/OC"
The OC uses this stolen wealth to create entire industries which multiply the damage of capitalism's systemic theft. Private health insurance, private telecommunications, private research groups damage our society for personal profit. Dead Americans for stock bumps.
A lot has been said in line with James Baldwin's "The West has no moral authority." The next step to this learning process is understanding how this is tied to the West's missing PRACTICAL authority, how capitalism is invariably self destructive to the greatest degree possible.
