Am watching the twitch feed, brothers and sisters 😉 Nina is ON it.

The sound could be better, but this is a good thing.

magsview

Oh good Brie has them answering a question someone posed on twitch feed. This is very good.

magsview

Last one of this, feel like I’m spamming.

One more, a screenshot of them all, Nina explaining. They could be a bit more energetic I think but, overall, a good start.

Haha, I didn’t crop it and you can see my bookmarks, lol, it’s all good… 😉

He’s a lucky guy to have a scratch cook in the house. I see way to many young “kids” cook out of a box.

Tyrannocaster

LOL.

What would be a game changer for the campaign is to release the results of the campaign fundraising via Twitch instead of press conference calls. That way we hear it at the same time as the media.

magsview

That’s a great idea. Twitchers would be all about that.

Well, this is interesting. Biden not riding so high among some black voters and they have a voice.

Freedom Rider: Biden and the Shame of the Black Misleaders

The following are just the subtitles in that article:

“The CBC won’t drop Biden unless the 1% clique tell them to.”

“Biden thanked Dixiecrat Senator James Eastland for assisting him in bringing anti-busing legislation to a vote.”

“Biden opposed school desegregation and he said so quite openly and used all the common racist tropes of that era.”

“The old canard of making do with a lesser bigot in order to forestall a worse one is an old and failed strategy.”

“The Democrats are now left with the dregs, an old school party hack who can’t hide his mediocrity.”

And there is this:

Of course there is a Democratic candidate who can beat Trump who also speaks to the needs of the people. But Bernie Sanders is unacceptable because he does that. The Democrats and their funders have already decided that we can’t have free college, Medicare for All, or an increased minimum wage. Sanders is an existential threat to the austerity project and so his candidacy is dead on arrival.

Wow, I really like this writer.

Often I come late to the twitch sessions so I don’t get to submit a question. I thought the one about distinguishing Bernie from others who have co-opted his ideas was a good one. Nina said, why have a copy when you can have the original.

I would like for Bernie to have a town hall through twitch and have Ana Kasparian of TYT ask him questions. Cenk is great but it would be nice to have a woman from Indie media who doesn’t get a chance to shine in the light very often. She is very good at getting to the details and nuances that need to be brought out.

polarbear4

Hasn’t she been sort of advocating for Warren?

magsview

Ana went off the rails a little ways back (had a bit of a meltdown) to the point that I unfollowed her. But I just looked at her timeline and it appears that the issue of private health insurance has grounded her.

Emma Vigeland, on the other hand, has gotten silly lately. Hey, support Warren if that’s your favorite but petty squabbling, putting other people down, and her obsession over Tulsi (in a bad way) is disappointing.

Tyrannocaster

Not to mention Emma’s awful taste in wine. 🙂

Benny

Ana is more in Bernie’s camp. Emma is in Warren’s camp, also likes Harris. Cenk closer to Warren in many ways, but I think trusts Bernie more. But those are my observations.

Benny

That’s the same union Bernie’s non-management employees belong to!!!!

You have to click on Schumer in order to get the point of the tweet.

You’re already paying a ‘tax’ for health insurance

If we’re going to have true national health insurance, Medicare-for-all, we’re going to have to pay for it.

Or, we can have some sort of half-baked plan that will not be adequately funded, will fail to cover everyone and will eventually become another example of government’s failure to fulfill its promises.

The fact is most Americans are already paying a “tax” for health insurance. It’s just called something else — health insurance “premiums.”

People who get their health insurance through work pay thousands of dollars a year for that coverage. In addition, they likely pay deductibles and co-pays. They may have their paychecks reduced by thousands of dollars each year to take advantage of Health Savings Accounts, HSAs.

That’s how our nation’s discussion about health insurance continues to change over time. People talk about the millions of Americans who love their private health insurance policies, paid for by their employers.

But those policies are not what they used to be. They include HMOs, PPOs, POS plans and others. You won’t even know what your plan covers until someone in your family gets really sick.

Health care costs increase all the time. Employers keep paying more to cover their employees’ health insurance. Many businesses have dropped coverage because they can’t afford it, or they have cut employee hours to part-time to reduce insurance benefits.

As artificial intelligence continues to expand in the workplace, many jobs that currently provide health insurance benefits will begin to disappear.

Many truck drivers, for example, will be replaced by self-driving vehicles, or drones.

Yet, when Sanders or other Democratic candidates for president talk about doing away with private health insurance, most voters run away in panic.

While more than half of all Americans have told pollsters that they support Medicare-for-all, only about one in three is willing to pay higher taxes for the privilege. The number drops even lower if eliminating private health insurance is part of the bargain.

Americans want health care to be a right. They want private, employer-supplied health care to remain an option. And they don’t like paying taxes.

But they will pay higher insurance premiums and happily contribute more money to their health savings accounts. Those are health insurance taxes and fees by another name.

Remember when private insurance companies refused to insure people with pre-existing conditions? Sure, you do. That’s what private insurance companies do. They make money. And those billions of dollars in profit do nothing to improve hour health care.

They also do nothing to regulate the cost of prescription drugs. Insulin in Canada costs $30 a vial, while the same supply might cost $320 here. That’s $1,200 in Canada for a supply of insulin that would cost a diabetic $12,000 in the U.S.

We need to regulate the cost of prescription drugs. We need to regulate medical costs.

Every other industrialized country in the world does both. Would a single-payer national health care system be perfect? Hell no. Is the current system of health insurance perfect? You know it is not.

People are frightened of change.

But under the current system people can’t understand their medical bills or their insurance coverage. The current system is designed to confuse you and rip you off.

You have to demand something different. Change is going to happen. It will be a change you control, or one controlled by people most concerned about making money.

That’s sick.

I saw the interview on CNN where Enten panned Bernie. He deserves this tweet.

polarbear4

she’s right, which is why neither one of us should probably phone bank or canvass. 😜

Harry Enten was Her most transparent fanboy at 538 during the 2016 election and still clinging to his disappointment it would seem.
