An undiscussed advantage for Bernie over the next year

I’ve been thinking about a potentially big undiscussed advantage Bernie has in the primary. He’s the only candidate who has run the entire primary calendar before. From everything to delegate counting, dealing with state conventions, handling vendors and events, staffing levels, budgeting, Bernie himself and his inner circle have done this in all 50 states. Hopefully that experience will be an asset over the next year.

Eliminating the profit motive of health insurance with Medicare-For-All would make health care 22% cheaper

According to the NASDAQ income statement of Anthem (one of the largest publicly traded health insurance companies in the US) made about 22% in gross profit, roughly $ 20 BILLION DOLLARS!

Medicare-for-all and banning private health insurance would make health care 22% cheaper, just by eliminating their profits, the cost would likely be reduced far more by not having ridiculous multi-million dollar executive compensation plans and bureaucratic waste.

So what’s the plan to beat Biden?

In all of the polls I’m seeing Biden is beating Sanders and Sanders is even coming in third with Warren in second. What’s the plan to beat Biden? Why would he be in first anyways with how much energy I’m seeing for Sanders and the headlines about him defending racism in the past?

One thing I’m thinking of is how much Energy Bernie versus Biden who has a lack of energy, charisma, and passion and the fact that Bernie and Biden haven’t been on the same debate floor yet.

MAGA Hat Initiative (Bernie Fundraiser)

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

If you are excited about the debates, like me, now is the time more than ever to donate to Bernie's country changing mission. Over the past 5 months since Bernie announced, I have been participating (with my wife and friends) in a new initiative to get Bernie donations. Each time we see someone in public with a MAGA hat on, we donate $ 27 to Bernie's campaign. Recently, we have started to let the MAGA hat wearer know this and so far, 3 people near us in restaurants or in cafes have stated that they will start doing this as well. Imagine what we could do if we completely turned the MAGA hat into a fresh way to support our best hope for a changed country!

Choice arguments, missed opportunity last night?

Watching last night’s debate, when the easily predicted centrist arguments of giving people a choice of healthcare insurance started to rain down, ie the subtle “my donors still want to be able too leech on you for a bit longer”, I was hoping for a more clear shutdown from Bernie (and Warren too, tbh).

People like having choices, even when they don’t need to and especially so when they today do (even if it’s between pest and cholera) so losing the ability to choose sounds scary to many.

Whenever choice gets brought up in bad faith as an argument against Medicare For All, like in last night’s debate, I think the first thing to clarify should be that they still have a choice, and it’s a better one to boot! Instead of having to choose insurance plans, they get to choose hospitals and doctors, and there’s never a question about cost OR where you work. It’s a better choice, a less complicated one, one that makes more sense AND gives people more freedom in choice of work and less prone to changes out of their control (employers).

Maybe I’m zooming in on this too hard, but I really do think choice is important to many. We probably wouldn’t see so many bad faith arguments about choice being hurled at the direction of M4A if it weren’t. What do you guys think?

This is a huge point I feel is getting lost in the conversation and I fear it makes M4A sound as scary to people uninformed of it as the other bad faith arguments about raising taxes or “kicking people out of their insurance plans they [allegedly] like”.
