I’d be very curious to see how many times the word “deregulation” is used in Yang’s health care proposals versus Sanders’.
(Reproductive health is a notable exception. This is his strongest pro-choice statement yet.)
And more importantly, what does Yang’s set of proposals mean for his brand in this primary?
(Raise your hand if you’ve argued with a Berner over M4A.)
He clearly realized this, at least now; because the first few paragraphs of his healthcare plan are focused on setting Yang’s brand apart from squabbling over labels.
But if he plays his cards right, he could turn it into an asset.
As President, if he restricts himself to something as ideologically loaded as M4A, it reduces his bargaining power, even with his own party!
