Hey guys,

I'm a Sanders supporter from California. I supported him in 2016 and am ready to support him again this time.

Like the title said, it's my first time participating. So, do you guys have tips and advice on how to talk to voters effectively?

I’m sorry if this isn’t exactly Bernie related but it’s sub related and I desperately wanted to point it out.

I don’t know if you guys have realized how amazing you are. Since we hit the $ 500k mark a few days ago, you guys have raised $ 40k+ and on track for $ 50k by the end of tonight. For reference, this sub raised $ 57k in the entire second quarter.

Let’s freaking go!

Anything other than “cats can have a little salami?”

I’ve been tasked to mentor a new employee (office is in Texas). She’s super friendly and has a decent learning curve, but it didn’t take long to realize that she doesn’t keep up with current events AT ALL (not even celebrity gossip as others in the office are). We haven’t talked about politics at all, but she brought it up while we were having lunch today.

She said, “I really don’t trust Trump. You can’t have much faith in someone who doesn’t care for animals.” When I asked for clarity, she said how Trump has never had a pet (so not about policies). I casually asked her out of the Democratic candidates who is she considering, and she asked who was running. I named some names very matter-of-factly and that was about the end of that topic.

With that said… is Bernie a pet-owner? Or maybe a former one? I can’t think of anything other than the cats having a little bit of salami thing (which I’m sure is more of a meme than anything else, but not going to exactly fact check). I know Warren and Buttigieg have been out public with their dogs.

I see her everyday at work and am pretty sure I can sway her since she respects me a lot (given our work positions and even personal advice). If you ask about her personality, she would closest align with Marianne Williamson… talks a lot about dreams, finding love, checks her daily horoscope, and stuff like that. She also has a lot of family in Oklahoma, she said she voted for Trump because that’s what her family told her to do.

With Medicare for all, what can we as voters expect coverage for children to be like? We had a child recently and with insurance, currently we owe more than 5K in various bills.

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

More info: 1400 for childbirth, 2500 for a doc band needed now, 1400 for blood work and testing during and after pregnancy, 500 for some physical therapy. Our insurance deductible resets in October and we had our baby right before. So deductible wasn’t met before, and now we will be 2500 out of pocket until it is met again. My contribution to my insurance each month is 440.

Analysis: Everybody except for the top 5% (and probably even more people) will spend less under Bernie’s M4A plan than what they are spending currently.

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

Sources:

  1. Bernie's plan on his Senate website: 4% income tax exempting first $ 29k.
  2. From the same source: An average family of four spent almost $ 5,300 in 2016.
  3. This is much higher in 2019, probably over $ 6k, as the costs have been rising by more than 5% annually. (CMS)
  4. Annual cost for premiums and out-of-pocket expenses: over $ 5,000 in 2017 for a household of 4 with annual income of $ 75,000. (Kaiser Family Foundation) They will pay just about $ 2,000 under Bernie's M4A.
  5. Households with annual income of $ 55k (median household income in the USA, which means half of the household incomes are below $ 55k, and the other half above) will pay about $ 1300 only.
  6. Everybody whose annual household income is below $ 155k (top 10%) will also spend below $ 5,000 under Bernie's M4A plan.
  7. Kaiser Family Foundation: For an annual household income of $ 150k, annual cost for premiums and out-of-pocket expenses was actually almost $ 7,500 in 2017. However, under Bernie's M4A, they will pay less than $ 5,000. The only people who will pay more than $ 7,500 are the top 5%, or those whose annual household income is $ 220k.
  8. I could not find how much the top 5% are spending currently, so it is possible than even some of the top 5% will pay less under Bernie's M4A plan.
  9. Household income percentile calculator: CNN

(The figures are slightly rounded for better readability).

A methodical analysis of why Bernie is better than Warren on Medicare For All

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

1) Bernie does better than Warren in most general election (GE) polls. He's more likely to win a general election

2) Bernie does better in GE polls because he attracts more independent voters and traditional non-voters in the young and working classes

3) As a result of #2, progressives will have better down ballot success in the 2020 primaries and Democrats will have better down ballot success in the 2020 general election if Bernie is the nominee.

Summary 1-3

Progressives will be represented better in the next Congress as a result of a Sanders nomination.

4) Sanders will have his allies introduce MFA legislation early in his first term to allow the opponents to be publicly identified.

Under Warren's plan the opponents will be able to hide until after the 2022 midterms.

5) Public identification of the opponents will enable progressive activists to focus their efforts and provide a lead time to field strong challengers in the 2022 midterms.

6) A President Sanders will be able to use the power of the Executive Branch to twist the arms of the opponents and horse trade for MFA votes.

A Senator like Joe Manchin might not be inclined to support MFA due to his big pharma donors, but those aren't his only donors. When Federal agencies under a Sanders administration fail to execute contracts which start impacting a broad array of the donor class, some opponents are going to blink.

(Sorry to the purists, Bernie is going to play hardball and make some concessions to the donor class in order to achieve larger goals)

7) It goes without saying that Sanders engages a much larger and more activist following than Warren.

The Organizer in Chief will have more people engaged in the political process pushing the change.

Overall Summary – MFA is easily the most effective and logical approach to health care in the US. The only reason we don't have it is due to the power of the corporate health lobby. That lobby will not allow anything leading to their demise to pass. The only way to stop them is to defeat them politically in a head to head confrontation.

We can't kick that confrontation down the road. Bernie has done an amazing job selling the public on MFA the last 4 years and we need to keep the foot on the gas pedal.
