Senator Michael Bennet’s complete disregard for the serious Medicare for All debate occurring in the Democratic Primary shows that he is disconnected and oblivious to what ails poor and middle-class Americans. He should note that Centrists being pushed by the plutocracy are falling like rocks as our two M4A champions are soaring or holding their high poll numbers. But like so many of his ilk, he simply lacks the empathy to care.
Michael Bennet has learned little from his undiscernable poll numbers
“The fact that we have spent half of or more than half this primary season debating Bernie Sanders Medicare for All plan,” the clueless Senator Bennet said. “Is much of a reason I think that we need different leadership in this party than anything else.”
We have cataloged Bennet Medicare for All sabotage for some time now. Here is one snippet from a previous blog post that is a must-read.
Michael Bennet is doing the dirty work of the insurance company by proposing Medicare X which is less disruptive but allows insurance companies to continue ripping off the American people by profiting from denying services. Moreover, it remains a bifurcated service. While Medicare for All is more disruptive, once it’s normalized it’s the most seamless system possible as seen in many other countries whose citizens are amused by America’s troglodyte form of healthcare. …
Remember, many candidates entering the race who are against Medicare for All know they do not stand a chance of winning. They are likely there to change the debate rightward with the expectation of future contributions from the Healthcare Industrial Complex and other segments of the Plutocracy.
It will be difficult enough to fight the Right to get a good version of Medicare for All. Having Democrats who purport to care about the wellbeing of the pocketbook and health of Americans as they carry water for those who continue to rip them off will have to be dealt with in the primaries.
So far, our Democrats have been coalescing around the candidates that best represent their values and needs. Some out of utter fear of a second Trump presidency are willing to accept the status quo. That position must be made as untenable as the Tea Party of the past made it for the effective disrupters of the past.
We are blessed with Indivisible, Swing Left, and a myriad of other organizations committed to exciting our base and those who have become social and economic allies of ours because of the reality becoming evident to many.
