I couldnt find where she's advocating an all at once enrollment for in addition to supporting Sanders' Medicare for All. Where did you find that info?

She hasn't exactly released the plan yet but that's the angle she's been taking. Looks like she's already earmarked the 2% wealth tax to other big structural changes so she's gotta find another way to come up with the $30Trillion.

Chuck Schumer has been working for ages to drop Medicare enrollment to 55. But he's a Democrat from the same state as Trump so he can't be trusted.

When it comes right down to it I don't expect much of anything at all to happen concerning healthcare. Because politics.

I do hope they'll at least fix the ACA but I'm not counting on it.

But that's just me. Always the optimist.........

Wait... wut?

You were asking me to answer a question based on a clear bill proposal of one candidate and a fictional position of another?

Right!
Warren backs Sanders plan. Iím backing Bernieís plan. I just donít see the logic of voting for an intermediary when I can vote for Sanders to fight for his own plan. After all, he wrote the damn bill!í laugh

Oh, I see. Makes perfect sense, except for Sanders age and health problems. If Sanders is the nominee, I would vote for him but I hope his VP is viable as well because I doubt he would last a full eight years. Maybe a Sanders/Warren ticket would do. But unfortunately, it will probably be a Biden/Nobody ticket. Where Nobody is someone you never heard of. I think that older candidates in particular should start selecting VPs from among the other candidates closest to their positions for the sake of continuity. Because we all die someday, and you never know which day that will be.

You're aware aren't you that Sanders is not going to win the nomination? I just don't want you to get your hopes up like last time.

There is only one thing we say to death. Not today! Syrio Forel

I just saw Bernie on Jimmy Kimmel, he looks fabulous! I have no worries about him serving even two terms. I'd vote for him in a New York minute if he got the nod.

And I'm not asking you to vote for an intermediary or anybody else, I genuinely don't care who you vote for or whether you vote at all.
You can vote for Sanders in the primary but that doesn't make him president. Even if he was president Medicare for All is unlikely to be adopted in the near term. It's just too expensive. And he is not going to become president so it's a moot point anyway.

I just read Sander's bill. There's nothing in it. No specifics, no timeline, no suggestion of how to pay for it. Just some vague notion that since Medicare is popular everyone should have it...and it would save money. I agree with it wholeheartedly. But turning it into law and actually implementing it is a whole nuther ball of wax.
