We all knew this was coming. Most of us could have written the script. The full on, all out, multi-front war on Medicare-for-All is about to begin. To paraphrase Churchill,
…the whole fury and might of the for profit Health Care Industry must very soon be turned on us. AHIP knows that they will have to break us on this Issue or lose the war. If we can stand up to them, all America may have Health Care and the life of our Nation may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole country, including the working poor, including all that we have known and cared for, will continue to sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lack of affordable health care.
Everything we know about the sleazy, Grima Wormtongue pronouncements of the ‘Progressive’ Corporate Democrats is about to be laid bare. The Corporate Weasels we know (Nancy and Chuck) will lead the charge. The Faux-Progressives will be forced once and for all to show themselves for who they truly are, Corporate Progressive Posers, show ponies for the duopoly’s kabuki theater.
We here at C99, like Santa Claus, will know who’s been naughty and nice.
Along with the Corporate Democratic Party Posers, we will see once and for all the Cowardly Corporate Careerist hacks in the MSM fall gleefully in line to spread AHIP’s propaganda far and wide. Already the 4 to 1 (against) MFA panels with only a purposefully weak, token MFA ‘proponent’ are being assembled. Softball questions and focus group tested answers will abound. ‘Progressive’ think tanks will produce mountains of studies showing the evils of Medicare for All. Polls will be rigged to show rapidly falling support.
