Love It! Improve It! Medicare For All!

What the midterms taught us: A ‘PEOPLE’S WAVE’ is rising. And we WILL win Medicare for All.

From record voter turnout — to mass grassroots door knocking, phone banking and volunteering, the win the pundits overlooked is the win of a rising “people’s wave.” This mass movement, a rebuke to the corporate agenda, is not beholden to election cycles or candidates, but rather to the issues themselves, from health care; to environmental, racial and economic justice; to voting rights.

How to Fully Protect People with Pre-Existing Conditions — Medicare for All

In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, the top dog, or pig in this case, Napoleon can’t get the land to produce food, so he makes it up. For example, Napoleon orders nearly barren storage bins be loaded up almost to the brim with sand, deceiving a human onlooker to report there was no food shortage on the farm. After he finally leaves the White House, Trump could play Napoleon in a remake of Animal Farm.
