Medicare for All is NOT starting all over. The program has been in place for 54 years (much longer than the ACA) so has already been proven to work and work much better than the ACA.

Biden: We can do anything!* We are the United States of America. When we set our mind to do something, we can get it done.*

*Except for universal health care, student debt, free college, increased wages or anything not corporate sanctioned.

Biden just claimed that he was against the Vietnam War. (At least he managed to avoid fighting in that war.) Fine, many were, but how does that square with his refusal to help the Vietnamese who assisted the US?

‘The US has no obligation’: Biden fought to keep Vietnamese refugees out of the US

Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner and advocate of large-scale immigration, once tried to block the evacuation of tens of thousands of South Vietnamese refugees who had helped the United States during the Vietnam War.

As a senator, the future vice president, now 76, was adamant that the U.S. had “no obligation, moral or otherwise, to evacuate foreign nationals,” dismissing concerns for their safety as the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong swept south toward Saigon in 1975.


As South Vietnam collapsed at the end of the Vietnam War in the spring of 1975, President Gerald Ford and the U.S. government undertook to evacuate thousands of South Vietnamese families who had assisted the U.S. throughout the war. The leading voice in the Senate opposing this rescue effort was then-Sen. Joe Biden.

Hundreds of thousands of South Vietnamese allies were in danger of recriminations from the Communists, but Biden insisted that “the United States has no obligation to evacuate one — or 100,001 — South Vietnamese.”

just another cold, murderous grifter.

I know that “murderous“ is a strong word, but I’m starting to apply it to those that so easily turn a blind eye to people dying in wars and conflicts that they have approved of. Or in this case, that his country approved of and he was in a position to help.

“Murderous” is accurate. Not allowing the people who assisted the US a way out left those people in a situation where they were most likely killed for that collaboration. Then there is his Iraq vote. And, in case, people have forgotten, he cam out in favor of invading Venezuela.

Under the Obama/Biden regime, the US went from being at war in two countries to, by the end, being at war in seven countries with a great expansion of troops being stationed in dozens of other countries.

Wow! Love it! To Delaney:

John: Aren’t you running in the wrong primary?

LOL

I knew I had heard Harris use the 3 AM phrase before (pretty sure she used it at the last debate). This is the same fear tactic that HRC used in 2016. I didn’t like it then, and I like it even less now.

T and R, Benny!! Off-topic: major assault weapon slaughter at an El Paso shopping mall/Wal-Mart. This gun garbage needs to be sliced off at its corrupt head. The celebration of bloody violence and war in the culture needs to end ASAP! Don’t get me started on the role of the Religious Far Right. Hypocrisy to the max! 🙁

Beto announced it when he was introduced and discussed it a bit. Some used their one minute intro to say something about the shootings, and it came up in the questions. And most of Pete’s time was taken up on the topic of gun violence.
