It’s the type of large-scale government works project Democrats shied away from under President Barack Obama.
Bernie-styled progressive, Stephen Jaffe For Congress, is challenging Nancy Pelosi from the left. ✊
San Francisco attorney Stephen R. Jaffe is a lifelong Democrat and he intends to do what no Democrat has been able to do so far: make it to a runoff election against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
“The far-reaching legislation would grant $62 billion to the governments of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, $27 billion to renovate infrastructure, and $13 billion in additional Federal Emergency Management Agency funding to rebuild the electric grid “with more modern, resilient technologies,” instead of the Stafford Act’s requirements that the grid be restored to its condition before the storms, according to a summary of the bill from Sanders’s office.”

“VERMONT SEN. BERNIE SANDERS on Friday demanded Congress do everything in its power to nullify a $300 million rebuilding contract between Puerto Rico and Whitefish Energy Holdings, a two-person Montana energy company with little experience in large-scale grid repair.”

These video campaigns Senator Sanders is putting out explaining the benefits of a Medicare for All system are best shared outside your in-group. Have a family member, friend or neighbor that doesn’t understand single payer or is against it? Don’t exhaust yourself trying to debate everything.

To date there are videos out explaining everything from costs, benefits, personal accounts, and perspective from doctors, patients, economists, businessmen and common folk alike. Spread the word. #MedicareForAll
