Bruce Lesley, of @First_Focus and @Campaign4Kids, explores that here. The proposed repeal of Obamacare (to be replaced, so far, by….uh…do you hear crickets? How did crickets get on this blog?) could have devastating effects on children and young people, according to this Georgetown University study.
Couple that with information from this Economic Policy Institute study which looks at the continuing and corrosive effect of segregated schools on all children, and we’re looking at rolling the clocks back for everyone under the age of 18.
But yeah. Make America Great Again. By all means.
Today the CBO published an updated report on the effects of partial repeal of ObamaCare® if Republicans continue on the replacement path they pushed last year (HR3762).
OOPS! dropped a switch in there. Sorry.
What chances does Medicare-for-All have, do you think?
I think it has a very good chance. Public opinion polls and surveys are showing increased acceptance of universal, publicly funded healthcare.
The problem is ideologues…especially those in the Democratic Party…that are in the pockets of corporate persons keep telling us it’s not feasible. It’s a lie that’s becoming increasingly apparent. The numbers add up.
Like I said, if Democrats in Congress continue to act in the best interests of profit over patients…like Cory Booker and 12 other Democrats just did the other day when they scuttled legislation proposed by Bernie that would allow importation of prescription drugs from Canada…Single Payer will continue to flounder. When the American people learn that instead of paying 9 to 15 percent..and more… of their income for barely adequate coverage they could be paying 3 to 7 percent for guaranteed comprehensive coverage and still save the nation a couple trillion dollars over time? They’re going to be pissed.
What we need right now is someone to convince The Donald that the President who signs Single Payer into law will be the next bust on Mount Rushmore.
That’ll be a carrot to dangle in front of him for everything, won’t it? Thanks.
