A society where people care for one another
Republicans don’t care that Trump is running a business from the White House, a clear violation of the constitution. They didn’t care when he locked children in cages. They didn’t care when he passed executive orders destroying the environment, started a trade war with China, and packed the government with incompetent stooges.
They are now up in arms that he wants to pull troops out of Syria and Afghanistan. The Democrats are really upset about this too. This is literally one of the only good decisions he has made, and this is what the political establishment is angry about. Think about that for a moment
“I spent 20 years as a health insurance executive before leaving my job as a vice president at Cigna. I can tell you firsthand that by focusing on a half-baked measure like a Medicare buy-in, Democrats would hand a huge gift to the private insurance industry while doing less than the bare minimum to help struggling businesses, workers, families and patients.”
An ex VP from one of our country’s largest private insurers comes out for Medicare for all! Any honest person with knowledge of our healthcare system will admit that insurance companies are making a log of money by denying or offering subpar healthcare.
Go for dramatic reforms. Health insurance companies are interested in profits, not playing fair. I should know. I used to be a vice president at Cigna.
We’re number 54! We’re number 54!…

Where the Koch brothers see government tyranny, most Americans see common-sense solutions to basic problems, it turns out.
When Republicans declare that they like Kavanaugh because he is “pro-business,” what they really mean is they like him because he’s anti-consumer, anti-competition, pro-monopoly and pro-oligarch.
The U.S. is at a crossroads when it comes to health care. It can achieve universal health care like the rest of the developed world, or it can allow millions of Americans to suffer needlessly—and if Republicans perform well in the November midterms, that suffering is guaranteed.
The U.S. is at a crossroads when it comes to health care. It isn’t hard to understand why so many American expatriates living in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan or even parts of Latin America dread the thought of ever returning to the U.S. and coping with its dysfunctional heath care…
There is a better way. One pool, one payer. Not for profit, but for people. Single payer. #MedicareForAll
“The risk adjustment program plays an important role in the ACA by pooling risk for insurers, transferring funds from insurers who enroll healthier members for relatively less, to those that take on higher costs in order to enroll sicker members. The idea is to insulate insurance companies from the cost of enrolling people with pre-existing conditions, and remove the incentive for insurance companies to cherry pick healthy people.”
Citing a February ruling from a district court in New Mexico, the administration said it will halt risk adjustment payments required by the ACA. Insurers say the move will increase premiums.
