To be fair if I had to sit there with a group of people who pretend to be smart but can't make a point without looking at a card first I'd probably get high too lol. Nah I take that back, knowing he was coming in the hosts should have been the ones getting high, sadly from the bits I saw the republican women did the best job when talking to him.

Bloomberg entering the democratic primary.
I'm not sure if he's entering it just getting Alabama taken care of because they have such an early deadline. If he waited beyond today he wouldn't have had ballot access there.

He's be a terrible choice, he's basically take Biden's spot IMO, he won't motivate anyone.

I feel like the civilized world should be uniting and rising up against China, but instead we're too tied up in all this right wing nonsense.

Medicare for all should not be a thing right now. It's all about one thing, making sure the orange a****** isn't re-elected. Medicare for all hurts that initiative.

Medicare for all just needs to include a private option right now, to keep the fear mongering down.

I think healthcare is the way to beat Trump and the GOP in the senate. GOP = GoFundme insurance. Everyone is worried about their insurance and expenses and the GOP had years to fix it and did nothing. Their initial plan was so bad they never voted on it as their own constituents hated it so much.

THAT's how they have to phrase it. They need to call the GOP's version of health insurance, GoFundMe insurance. That is BRILLIANT!

Yep, if I was running the Democrat's 2020 campaign in the general, health insurance would be the #1 thing.

"Save our healthcare"

The GOP is going to scare monger, but just don't give them the sound bytes they want and it won't be effective.

They won 2018 because of health care. Now anyone in the part that is a bit realistic on health care or other Bernie policies looks horrible.

That's the unfortunate problem of winning a tough primary vs winning the general. The reality is even if a more left leaning candidate wins the big election and the Democrats take over congress, congress is still going to be an anchor for the middle. Obama barely got ACA passed.

I like Warren a lot, but I also assume that her plans will be watered down between now and if she's elected.

This is definitely a time where she needs to just stay out of it

But she is right and M4A is just a loser right now. Not as popular as people think and they will never find the votes. Filibuster or not.
Yeah I think M4A is something that should be done but we need to slow down a bit on it or at least get the messaging right, it's polling below 50% in swing states and we can't lose this election. If they are going to really keep pushing for it they need to explain clearly how the only thing that'll change is who's paying the provider and that you can keep your same doctor and hospital. There is likely a lack of trust there because Obamacare didn't allow you to keep your doctor, of course that also has to do with the insurance companies and their interference. I don't know anyone who likes their insurance company, they just like knowing they have at least some type of coverage.
