Thread: Straight talk about Sanders’ Medicare for All plan.
Sanders has been misleading people, selling snake oil, and poisoning the well.
Don’t @ me until you’ve heard me out. And to be clear, not everyone who supports SP (like me!) is a snake oil salesperson.
There’s been a nat’l SP bill introduced every Congressional cycle since 1945. Every author and every co-sponsor has considered those bills aspirational, a vehicle to start the conversation, not a realistic end point. Everyone except Sanders, and sadly, for most of 2019, Warren.
Also to be clear:
Sanders’ M4A plan is NOT the only M4A plan.
It’s NOT the only SP plan.
It’s NOT the fastest or least expensive path to a national SP system.
It’s NOT synonymous with UHC and would *prevent* 100% UHC in the US.
