    From the Republicans have no HealthCare thread:

    It amazes me to no end to see these tards, after ten years, STILL have not caught on they have been massively hoaxed by the GOP and Trump.

    That kind of willful stupidity is stunning. Simply stunning.

    The “hoax” was by the Hussein and his abysmal health care plan.

    What you tards STILL fail to realize is that the whole reason we have Obamacare is because the Republicans offered NOTHING to solve the problem of skyrocketing health care costs for DECADES.

    And because of tards like you, we will eventually end up with single payer. When offered the choice of NOTHING and SOMETHING to address a problem, the voters will choose SOMETHING sooner or later. Even if that SOMETHING sucks.

    You will never hold Trump or the GOP accountable for their hoaxing you. You will continue to drop to your knees and guzzle their piss. It's what you do. You can't stop yourself.
    And today Kaine and Bennett introduce the second of the two legs of Paul Krugman's path to single payor that was laid out in Conscience of a Liberal, and was the base for Obamacare.

    Bennet, Kaine set to introduce ‘Medicare X’ plan to expand health care
    Instead of all that crap about Bronze Silver and Supplements …. if you don't have or like your private insurance, you can buy into Medicare and, oh by the way, we'll goose the skids for you with "revenue assistance."

    Krugman's theory was people and employers will "flock" to Medicare because it'll have lower overhead and produce better benefits. And private insurance will die a slow steady death

    GOP wants to put Democrats on the spot again with vote on 'Medicare for all'

    Senate Democrats are livid with GOP majority leader Cocaine Mitch McConnell for forcing them to put their money where their mouths are when it comes to their radical, wildly expensive proposals.

    First, McConnell held a vote on the Green New Deal. Every Democrat senator voted "present." Now McConnell has turned his attention to the Dems' "Medicare for all" proposal with a view toward embarrassing them again.

    "I think it deserves a full debate and a vote and see how many Democrats who are co-sponsors actually support it," said Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference.

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said he hoped the bill would be brought to the floor. Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) noted that the decision was ultimately up to McConnell but that a vote "stakes out people's position," while Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said that "we'll see how many of the other senators running for president are co-sponsors of the bill."

    "It's a big issue, and if they want to have debate on this, we can have one," Blunt said.

    A Senate leadership aide suggested there was openness on the part of Republicans to push for a vote. "The Green New Deal vote helped shine a light on the Democrats' radical plans," the aide said, "and we will be looking for future opportunities to highlight their socialist agenda."

    "It ought to be called 'Medicare for None,'" he said. "One hundred eighty million Americans would lose their private health insurance, that many of them have negotiated for at work. ... You want to turn America into a socialist country? This is the first step."
