Day 185:

The answer is medicare for all :

The question is “how do we fix health care.”  Get profit out of the system, get big ass companies out of the system, get their money out of politics, and cover EVERYONE.

Have you called your senator today and told them you want true, universal medicare for all health care?

Day 183:

The robots keep going long after the humans have perished :

What we have right now is a bunch of republicans who are still trying to pass a massive tax cut dressed up as a health care bill.  Their donors want it…want it real bad.  So they are going to keep trying to pass it, even though it looks very unlikely that it will pass.

Each time they try, they only make themselves look more and more craven, depraved, and cruel.  These are money robots, they do what the money says.  They don’t have thoughts or feelings or morals, they are an investment vehicle for large piles of money.

They need to be voted out of office, and replaced with real human people who actually care about you and me.
