Bernie Sanders, Top Progressives Announce New Medicare-For-All Push
Lowering the Medicare age could be a starting point.

In the wake of the Republican failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act on Friday, leading figures in the progressive wing of the Democratic Party are rallying behind a single-payer health insurance and a raft of other bold reforms.

These lawmakers and grassroots leaders have long believed that the problems plaguing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, are rooted in the original health care law’s attempt to accommodate, rather than gradually replace, the private, for-profit health insurance system.

Now that efforts to eliminate the law wholesale are effectively dead, they are again arguing that the best way to improve the country’s health care system is to confront the power of corporate health care provider more directly.

“We have got to have the guts to take on the insurance companies and the drug companies and move forward toward a Medicare-for-all, single-payer program,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” on Friday night. “And I’ll be introducing legislation shortly to do that.”

Even before the Republicans withdrew their Obamacare repeal bill, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee and a close Sanders ally, previewed this message at a rally in defense of Obamacare on Thursday.

“Don’t just be satisfied with defeating Trumpcare ― set your sights on creating real Medicare for all!” he told a cheering crowd of hundreds of activists.

Representatives of several major progressive organizations ― the Working Families Party, the Progressive Campaign Change Committee, Credo, Social Security Works and the National Nurses United ― all echoed this push in conversations with The Huffington Post on Friday and Saturday.

“The problem is the insurance companies, Big Pharma ― they’re gonna come back and use the chaos to their advantage,” predicted Social Security Works executive director Alex Lawson. “If Democrats go with a half-a-loaf policy, Republicans are going to blame them for the failures of Big Pharma. They have to immediately pivot to expanding Medicare.”

I think it's a little tricky. I mean Gemmas reaction yesterday. It is pretty obvious that these 2 men were together at some stage. I find it very hard to believe that they were always only friends. So when someone says Larry is real. What does that actually mean. That they are together now? Have been? Either way. Fans are not just taking it out of thin air and she knows that. So her reaction must have a different reason.

Everyone around the boys: No, Larrie isn’t real, you constantly take everything we say out of context to try and keep it real, please leave us alone.

All of you Larries:

anonymous: This could be for both dark or Anti. How do you feel with people calling you daddy? I mean for them to even think that they would have to give their all to you. Are you for or against?

anonymous: Anti I don’t get it. If you just want to kill (and eat?) everyone why must we all like you? Does it help if we enjoy you slowly killing us? I would think it takes the pleasure away…

anonymous: Hey Anti, Imma make this short and sweet. Do you accept sacrifices?
