What we need to do now is to get morally outraged at the whole legislative process up till now, and work to defeat everything “on the table” in Congress, and go back to square 1. And square 1 is enhanced Medicare for All. And the first thing we ought to do in the context of pushing that, is to seek a vote on S703, Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All bill, and, along the way, force a showdown on the filibuster and use the “nuclear option” to get the 60 vote nonsense off the table for good, so we can pass health care reform with a simple majority, and without the need for any deficit-neutral nonsense.
Again, I’m all for outrage, and even fury; but it needs to be directed toward the right things, and they are all the earlier outrages committed in this health care reform legislative process starting with taking Medicare for All, single-payer off the table.
