“His fingers touched the strings, and all my thoughts were displaced. The sound was pure and sweet as water, bright as lemons. It was like no music I had ever heard before. It had warmth as a fire does, a texture and weight like polished ivory. It buoyed and soothed at once.”
Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders held no punches about just what the looming prospect of an ACA repeal meant for the country.
While Cruz insisted Republicans would provide better access to health care at a lower price point than the ACA, Sanders fairly pointed out the party still has little idea how to do that and risks stripping insurance from tens of millions who did not have it before the law went into effect. Read mo
during the debate between Ted Cruz and Bernie sanders last night about obamacare this one woman told Bernie she has a small business (I think a hair salon) and she was like I can’t grow my business because I have to provide my employees with health insurance and it’s too expensive. and Bernie straight up told her, hey you’re not gonna like my answer, but I’m sorry I think you need to provide them with insurance (and then he brought up the fact that he thinks single payer health insurance is still the way to go). then this lady told Ted Cruz that without Obamacare, she would have died. and he gave some generic answer about how he doesn’t wanna take away all aspects of Obamacare (which btw is a lie because he once held a 20 hour filibuster in which he read green eggs and ham in order to repeal every last word of Obamacare). but like…..this is where we’re beginning the discussion. “I can’t grow my business” vs “I would have died”
watching this debate is so surreal because there’s no one yelling “wrong” the whole time. imagine. two qualified individuals acting like adults who are fit to represent their constituents. what a world.
AND to the hundreds of people who have commented on this and said “this is what defense lawyers do” no. There job is too defend their client. Clinton defended her client by saying the girl was asking for it and victim blaming. Complete scum. Isn’t that the same rape culture everyone wants to get rid of? Yet here is Hillary saying oh well it wasn’t rape she was asking for it.
She took this case on as a favor and did not have to take it.
