Maybe the U.S. does need Medicare for all. But an affordable public option that is income based would also work, wouldn’t it?

Maybe the U.S. does need Medicare for all. This is insane. But an affordable public option that is income based would also work, wouldn’t it? I’m hoping Warren and Biden can work things out and even become a team!

“Gail Dudley, 31, who was sitting with her mother in the third row. She had gone to the emergency room at Poplar Bluff Regional in 2017 after passing out because of complications from Type 1 diabetes. The hospital had given her medication to stabilize her blood sugar, kept her overnight for observation, and then sent her home with a bill for $8,342, of which she was still responsible for about $3,000 after insurance. She’d tried to appease the hospital’s billing department by sending in an occasional check for $50, but with accumulating interest and penalty fees, the balance on her account had remained essentially the same for two years.”

Election 2016 is already starting

Well, it’s early 2015, so not too early to be talking about the 2016 elections.

I’m a Hillary Clinton supporter, and have been for years.

I think it’s likely she will win the nomination. And also likely she’ll be elected. Her most competitive GOP opponent is probably Jeb Bush.

There will be the usual “political dynasty” talk, etc. But every Bush left economic wreckage at the end of his presidency. While there has only been one Clinton presidency, he left things in good shape.

Anyway, it will be an interesting race.

I don’t really get the attraction of Elizabeth Warren. I think Hillary Clinton is a progressive. And also a pragmatist. I think she has sincerely held views.

Anyway, Warren only has about 8% support among Democratics.

It was interesting to note that with all the talk of Hillary’s age, she is only 1.5 years older than Warren.

I like her latest hashtag: #GrandmothersKnowBest
