    'Going Outside Traditional Media,' Sanders to Stream National 'Medicare for All' Town

    https://www.commondreams.org/news/20...-all-town-hall

    "The United States is the only major country on earth not to guarantee healthcare to all people, but amazingly there has not been one network town hall to discuss why our system lags so far behind every other industrialized country," Sanders said. "We are going outside the traditional media to change that, to talk about the real issues affecting the American people."The event is open to the public and will be streamed live across Sanders' social media channels as well as the three online media outlets, NowThis, ATTN:, and The Young Turks.
    Sanders, a long-time advocate of establishing a single-payer national healthcare system, will be joined by other healthcare experts to take questions about what that transition could look like. One proposal comes from Sanders himself; last year, the senator introducedthe Medicare for All Act, which would guarantee healthcare to all Americans.
    Even though the Medicare for All bill is backed by more than a quarter of Sanders' colleagues in Congress, and poll after poll has shown growing public support for a single-payer system, the senator and his digital partners are frustrated by the national media coverage of proposals to transform the U.S. system so that it can provide healthcare for everyone.
    "The mainstream media continues to ignore how income inequality and the lack of a decent healthcare system devastates the middle class," said The Young Turks co-host Ana Kasparian. "I look forward to hearing from Bernie how his Medicare for All plan can address this issue."
    Corporations control our media, too. Remember that.
    If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.

    Awesome, I look forward to it. We need more vocal progressive voices to cut through the dual-establishment noise. I already follow Robert Reich's regular "show" on Facebook.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."
    - Eugene V. Debs (1855-1926), American labor leader

    Why would he do that? She's already been cleared. Under your logic, she hasn't been charged so she's not guilty.

    Now, why is it you radicalized right wingers think the poor should not have good health care? Jesus was a liberal who helped the poor. Are you a satanist?

    Fraud probe into Bernie’s wife could ruin his hopes for 2020

    The feds are still investigating Bernie Sanders’ wife for possible bank fraud and may present evidence to a grand jury, a new report said Friday.
    The probe could affect any presidential ambitions Sanders has for 2020, Fox News reported.
    People questioned by the FBI told the network that the investigation was still open, with FBI agents interviewing at least one witness within the last six weeks.
    Jane Sanders is under the microscope because of a land deal she handled when she was president of Burlington College in Vermont in 2010.

    Der...ummm....duh....


    The poor have good health care; and Medicaid isn't going anywhere, with or without the Pseudo-Socialist Sanders, who lived in his Mommy's basement until he got on the Public Teat, never let go, and has, somehow, become millionaire on $174,000 per year.

    So, is that a no on substantive discussion?

    Nationalized health insurance is still not nationalized healthcare. When a democrat comes up with a plan to buy or build a hospital in all 3,007 counties in the US, I will believe they are trying to improve actual healthcare.
