On top of the other threads I have going for supposed 2020 candidates, Joe Kennedy, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Deval Patrick so far, the DNC has announced that it will be holding the 2020 convention July 13th-16th. politi.co/2yhnw62 via @politico
If you follow this post back, you'll find my other threads about Joe Kennedy, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Deval Patrick so far, all leading to an article by the NYTimes that makes legalized bribery sound normal.
I can foresee a lot of bullshit being pulled by the Democrats in the future. Vanity Fair even states that their literal strategy is "don't rock the boat with too much progressivism". vanityfair.com/news/2018/06/o…
I'll be trying to avoid @UHC for the rest of my life, or until we get single payer. Here's a brief description of a terrible experience that really isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things.
I was on UHC, had no problems, then got a new job and extended it for one month with COBRA. Hurt my knee (I was on crutches for two months) and paid out of pocket to cover an MRI, bc doc's office didn't have my new card, couldn't run it. I paid knowing I was in-network.
They sent a claim denial to my doctor (not me, as they should have, since I filed the claim). They needed diagnosis codes. I went in person to the doc, got them, and called them in. They refused to accept them from me.
I don't share much of my personal life on social media, but today I'm compelled to share this very personal part of me only a few know. As many of you know, I'm an advocate for #MedicareForAll, its personal for me & for all the patients that should be alive today.
I have shared my experience about working in healthcare, the heartbreaking moments forever embedded in my memory. I'm having a tough time at the moment trying to put this tweet together holding back tears & catching my breath. #MedicareForAll
It was a few years ago I found out I was born with a congenital heart defect. A couple of months after my fourth child was born, I collapsed on the kitchen floor playing an innocent game of tag with my boys & my husband. I had pain in my chest & shortness of breath. #Medicare4All
