- When supermajorities find that they cannot move their “own” political party to represent their interests, then it’s time to cut that party loose. “The best thing that the national majority and the Democratic super-majority can do, for the sake of everyone’s health and the future of democracy, is to leave the Democratic Party.” A national health disaster is looming. Single payer is the only solution.
- “Sticking with the Democrats only encourages them in their loyalty to their corporate masters.”

March 16, 2017 | Sixty percent of the American people – three out of every five adults — favor some form of single payer health care. They are a clear majority, but they have no major political party to represent them. More than 80 percent of the Democrats — four out of very five – support a Medicare-for-all, single payer health care system, but their party refuses to represent them on this life and death issue. The best thing that the national majority and the Democratic super-majority can do, for the sake of everyone’s health and the future of democracy, is to leave the Democratic Party.
Sixty four members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed on to Congressman John Conyers’ Medicare-for-all bill. But, none of them are actively pushing the legislation. Instead, they’re trying to resurrect the ghost of Obamacare — just like Bernie Sanders is doing.

The Wing-Nuts WILL Fund Their Oracles, You Can Be Sure
The right wing will fund their oracles, that's a given. We are told that we will always be without means, never never know stability, never be able to provide. One more lie, after another.
We know what to do with a budget. We know how to apply it, how to grow something of value to the community with it. Let's give them something to talk about.
Thank you all sincerely.

The Democrats have refused to lift a finger for a health plan that would actually benefit the people who vote for their party. It’s time for working people to tell the Democrats—and the Republicans and their demagogic President Donald John Trump—that if they refuse to provide us with a health care plan that actually benefits us, we will elect people who will, independent candidates whom we choose and who are responsible to us, not to the insurance bosses, pharmaceutical executives, and Wall Street speculators. The time is now.
