Knowing I'm mostly followed by people in health care, I'm curious: Where do you stand on 'Medicare for all'?
The Democratic platform committee debated and then voted down an amendment to endorse Medicare For All by a vote of 125 to 36
On Monday, Democratic National Committee delegates voted against the inclusion of two progressive amendments into the party’s 2020 platform. In a vote of 36 to 125, the DNC Platform Committee rejected a Medicare for All amendment.

This is what happened when people in the U.K. were asked how much health care costs in the U.S. Remember that our outrageous for-profit system is not the norm in other countries. We can and we must do better. We need Medicare for All now.
Medicare for All means never losing your health insurance if you lose your job. That is what we must guarantee to the American people.
We've been told over and over that Medicare for All is "too radical." I think it's radical to have a health care system that leaves 87 million people uninsured or underinsured. I think it's radical that people can't afford to see a doctor during a pandemic.
