  1. I just read an article the other day, can’t remember where right now, that stated there were a number of Democrats in Congress who were read to push the Medicare-for-all if the mandate does get shot down.

    I think that should have been the approach from the start, with the benefit of 20-20 hindsight of course. Labeling it Medicare For All would have made it miuch easier to swallow for people and the claims of socialism would have tempered significantly.

    • There was some talk on the fringes of Medicare for all during the health care debate but it never gained much traction and, unfortunately, I would imagine the Democrats you saw willing to bring it up were the same ones drowned out of the debate when they brought it up before. In the atmosphere we have now with a Republican majority in the House that votes against anything the Democrats propose, it’s impossible at the moment for something like this to happen. The numbers in Congress would have to change dramatically in November for this to even be considered in the near future. I hope some do bring it up in the event the mandate is struck down so the debate continues and stays in the public eye for an extended period again. That is certainly needed.

      • I agree… it’d never make progress through the GOP held House. Just have to keep fingers crossed for some Democratic headway in Congress or somemore moderate Republicans (if any still exist).

  2. If the Supreme Court isn’t careful with legislating from the bench and making decisions from a standpoint of obvious bias, we will either end up without a Supreme Court at all or we will end up with a Supreme Court that permanently replaces The Congress and we will then have that one party system that some on The Far Radical Right have been working for so long. By the way–thanks for the visit to American Liberal Times. It was appreciated a lot.
